Children coming into the Early Years Reception Year are admitted to school in September of the school year when they have their 5th birthday (i.e between 1st September and 31st August).

During the summer term, we hold open evenings for the parents of the September intake into Early Years Reception and there are various opportunities for parents and new children to come into school to help with the settling in process.

We follow the same Admissions Policy for children with Special Educational Needs and more information about this can be found along with the SEND policy, on our SEND page
