  1. Key Information
  2. Admissions



Admissions Procedure

The Admissions Authority to this Community School is the Local Authority. Parents seeking a place for children at our school should make an application by completing the LA School Admission Application Form PA1 (which is available from the school or from the LA and also online). The completed application form should be returned to school, or submitted online, by the date of each year announced by the LA. The school will accept late applications in the circumstances published by the LA. Applications should be received before the closing date given by the LA since late applications will be treated separately to those received on time.

Children whose 5th birthday falls between 1st September to 31st December will start school full-time in September. The school operates an induction period where children build up to a whole day. This usually lasts for a week.

Parents have the legal right to keep their child at Playgroup/Nursery/School or at home until the term after their child’s 5th birthday. The Governors will keep a place for any child registered with us to enter full-time education in the same academic year. Admission may not be deferred beyond the relevant academic year.


Admissions Criteria

The admissions criteria is set by the Local Authority as outlined in the Local Authority Admissions Handbook.


Allocation of Places

The LA on behalf of the Governors, will notify parents of the outcome of their application for a place in the reception year group usually in April  before the September admissions date.


Admissions to other Year Groups and In-Year Arrangements

Applications should be made to through admissions on Form CA1 (available from the school). The school will advise parents as to whether a place can be offered.


School Tours

We often hold our Open Days in October and November where parents considering our school for their child are encouraged to attend. Parents can also telephone the school office to make an appointment to meet the Headteacher and visit the school.
