Pupils are normally admitted to the Reception Class of a primary school at the beginning of the academic year in which they will have their fifth birthday.
Parents do have the right, however, should they wish, to delay their child’s entry to school until the beginning of the term of their fifth birthday.
There is normally only one intake per year, at the beginning of the Autumn Term, and like most primary schools admits pupils initially on a part-time basis for an induction period.
Preference is given to those pupils who reside within the school’s catchment area at the time a child starts.
After Easter, in the summer term, letters, prospectus, forms etc. are sent out to ‘new’ parents.
We welcome each child and his or her family and invite them to spend time with us in the summer term prior to the child starting school in September.
