Admission to Primary School 2016

 

Before your child is due to start school, please visit us and place your child’s name on the list for future entrants.  We have two opportunities for you to visit our school, the first will be on 17 November 2017 at 1.30pm and the second is on 23 November 2017 at 9.30am.  If you are unable to make either of these dates please contact the school office and a suitably convenient appiontment can be made. 

If your child gains a place within our school they will be invited to spend some time, during the Summer term  in their new class in order to experience a variety of lessons and to become familiar with its layout.

Admissions Policy

In the event of the school being over-subscribed for the Reception Year, places are allocated according to the following LEA admission criteria, in priority order:

• Children in Local Authority Care

• Current family association (a brother or sister in the school at the time of entry)

• Health reasons (for which a medical certificate may be needed)

• Nearness of children’s homes to the school

Parents considering applying to the school at other times during their child’s/children’s primary years are most welcome to visit the school in the event that a place is available.
