The school’s admission policy – first admissions into Reception year
The school will admit children in the September following their fourth birthday. However parents can;
- Request that the date their child is admitted to the school is deferred until later in the school year or until the child reaches compulsory school age in that school year
- Request that their child attends part-time until the child reaches compulsory school age (the beginning of the term after their 5th birthday)
The parents/carers of children who are about to start school are invited to a meeting in the term before s/he starts so that any concerns can be discussed and school procedures can be explained. Parents are also very welcome to visit for a tour of the school – please ring the Headteacher to arrange a convenient time.
Admissions to year groups other than the intake year
Applications for admission to other year groups will be considered in relation to the published admission number (PAN) which applied when the year group was first admitted to the school, subject to infant class size restrictions. In some schools, changes in circumstances, such as the building of additional classrooms or as a result of teaching group organisation, will require the school and the LA to agree admission numbers which will apply to each year group. The Local Education Officer will agree the detail of this should any issues arise. In the absence of an agreement, the PAN which applied when the year group was first admitted to the school will apply. If places are available within the year group, applications will be considered in accordance with the current published admission criteria for admission to the school. If places are available, the child will normally be admitted to the school.
