Admissions to Reception

In the few months before they begin school, parents are invited to meet the Headteacher and the Reception staff. Every effort is made to have children in school for an informal session before they officially start.

Children are admitted full time in September unless parents feel that their child is not ready for this. By law, children must start at the commencement of the term following that in which they have their fifth birthday.

We will be holding Open Mornings on Tuesday 8th November and Tuesday 29th November, 9.30-11.30am. If you would like to attend, please email our school office with your name, telephone number and email address and we will contact you to make an appointment.

Places are allocated using criteria, which include residence in the school's catchment area, distance from school and whether or not the child already has a sibling attending the school.

The deadline for Reception Admission September 2023- August 2024 for children born between 1 September 2018 and 31 August 2019 is 15th January 2023.

Children attending an infant school and born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016 will move up to junior school in September 2023. The deadline to submit your application is 14th January 2023.
