Our school welcomes children from 2 years old to our nursery, on a term time basis and from 4 years (Reception) to 9 years (Year 4) to our main school.

Our admissions and appeals timetable is available at:

Admission forms are available from the the Local Authority Admissions Team on 01305 228509. Applications can be made online, follow this link:   https://www.dorsetcouncil.gov.uk/education-and-training/schools-and-learning/apply-for-a-school-place/apply-for-a-school-place

For school age children, there is one admission date each year. Children are admitted  in the September term of the year in which they are five.  Admissions to other year groups, at other times, may be considered in the event that there are available spaces in the requested year group.

If children are joining our reception class and have accepted a school place, a number of transition activities will be organised during the summer term, including ‘getting to know us’ sessions in the classroom and a chance to join us for a school lunch.

Children are admitted to our nursery school provision from the age of two years. Our nursery school, offering term time care, operates as a nursery class within our school.

If you require a place at our nursery, please contact the school office to discuss your requirements. Settle sessions, where the parent and child stay at our nursery for a period of time together, must take place prior to starting. We will arrange a suitable settle session so you and your child are comfortable starting our nursery. 

Older children who have moved into the area will be admitted to the school provided we have space in the appropriate year group.

Breakfast club is available from 7.30am.

After school care is available until 5pm Monday to Thursday and 4pm on Friday.

Breakfast club and after school care are available for all nursery and school age children.

We offer term time only provision.
