If you are thinking of applying for a place at our school, we do not hold an Open Day, preferring to meet with parents (and their children, if they can come too) individually. In this way, parents get to see the school under normal conditions, giving a much more accurate feel of what we have to offer. Please contact the school office to make an appointment for this.
Admissions Arrangements - Reception Class
Our maximum annual intake is 45 children.
Our Reception, or Foundation, Classes ensure that the specific needs of children who are 5 years, and under, are met, in accordance with the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. In particular, this allows children to develop at their own rate, through structured play and the gradual introduction of more traditional teaching methods.
Admission arrangements for 2020-21 entry
This year's Admissions Consultation is being jointly held by all admissions authorities in the City of York between 08 October and 07 December 2018. The consultation includes the admissions policies and planned number of places available at each school in the year(s) of entry. The views of parent/carers, schools and other interested parties are being sought during this consultation.
To respond, you can write to us, email email@example.com or complete this short survey at www.surveymonkey.com/r/admissionsconsultation2020
Following the consultation, each admission authority will formally set ('determine') their admission arrangements for admission in 2020/21 by 28 February 2019. Determined policies will be on all admissions authorities own websites by 15 March 2019 after which objections can be raised.
All documents found below at this stage are in their draft (pre-determined) form.
