Admission Arrangements

If your child reaches 4 years of age before September the 1st then you can enroll them to start Primary School. To do this you need to contact the Local Authority (LA) and ensure that your admission form reaches them by their deadline date.

During the Spring Term prior to the September new school year, you will receive notification from the Local Authority about the school place your child has been allocated. Following this, we will write to you and explain about our induction sessions for all of the new Reception class children.

Before the end of July all of the children will be invited in for a series of sessions to allow them to become familiar with the school, the rest of the class and the adults that will be working with them. During this time we will also hold family information sessions where we can talk about the school and answer any concerns or queries that you may have.
