Admission Arrangements


The arrangements for the admission of children into the Reception year are made by the admissions department of the Local Authority (LA). All children are admitted in the academic year of their fifth birthday. It is quite usual for a reception class to contain some children who became five just as they started school and some children who will not be five until they are almost ready to begin Year One!

If your child is older than 5 years, applications can be made throughout the year, and if places are available, individual admission arrangements can be made.

All children are unique and equal. We are an inclusive school and endeavour to enable all individuals to flourish academically, socially, physically and emotionally. We actively seek to eradicate discrimination in all its forms

New parent meetings are held to give ideas about how you can get your child ready for school prior to the September intake. Children are also invited into school for taster sessions. For more information please feel free to contact the school office.
