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: an individual meeting the headteacher; an individual meeting with the class teacher; ‘getting to know us’ sessions in the classroom and a chance to join us for a school lunch.

However, 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, safe settle session so you and your child are comfortable starting our nursery.
