Churchend Primary Academy is a vibrant and exciting school for your child to grow, learn and become the best possible version of themselves.
We are a two-form entry academy and have 60 places each year in our reception classes, 48 across our nursery class. We occasionally have places available in other year groups so please contact us if you are new to the area or moving schools.
We also offer Breakfast and After School Clubs to support families with childcare arrangements. Please see the link on our website for more information.
Primary School Admissions are administered by our Local Authority, Reading Borough Council, and we adhere to their processes and policies for administering places fairly. In the event of there being more applications than places available, then Reading Borough Council apply our oversubscription criteria.
If you would like your child to attend our academy, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.
