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.
