In line with LA Policy, the School has one intake into Reception class in the September of each year.  The school academic year runs from 1st September to 31st August and children are admitted in the September prior to their fifth birthday.   Our official admission limit is 30. 

Upon confirmation of a School place for the start of the academic year, parents are invited to an Intake Meeting in the Summer Term to discuss their child’s transition.  Here, parents have the opportunity to meet the Headteacher, Deputy and Reception teaching and support staff.  Parents  will be able to visit classrooms and have a look at examples of activities their children will be engaged in.  It is an informal, enjoyable event where parents can meet others whose children will be starting School at the same time.  Children have the opportunity to visit their new class and meet their new teacher and classmates during the Summer Term before they are due to start school, the children then start in September.  Further details are provided upon confirmation of a place. 

We hold annual Open Mornings in the Autumn Term specifically for parents of school children due to be admitted in the next intake and these are published on the home page of the website once dates have been finalised.
