In line with LA Policy, the school has one intake into Reception class in the September of each year.  The school academic year runs from 1st September to 31st August and children are admitted in the September prior to their fifth birthday. Our official admission limit is 30.

Upon confirmation of a school place for the start of the academic year, parents and carers are invited to a welcome meeting in the Summer Term to discuss their child’s transition.  Here, parents and carers will have the opportunity to meet the Headteacher and Reception teaching and support staff.  It is an informal, enjoyable event where parents and carers can meet others whose children will be starting school at the same time. 

We hold annual Open Mornings & Afternoons in the Autumn Term specifically for parents of school children due to be admitted in the next academic year and these are published on the home page of the website once dates have been finalised.   

Further information on the Local Authority Guidelines for intake to Reception in September or in-year transfers and admissions can be found using the link below. The local authority is responsible for co-ordinating all admissions to the school. All relevant forms can also be found using the same link:
