Parents

Admissions

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 2020-21 entry 

Between 8 October and 7 December 2018 all admissions authorities for schools in York jointly conducted a consultation on admission arrangements for the admissions rounds for entry in September 2020.

The closing date for comments was 7 December 2018. After considering any comments received, the MAT Board has, in its role as an admission authority, now formally set (‘determined’) these arrangements on 21 February 2019.

Any objections to our arrangements may be made by parents/others to the Schools Adjudicator by the 15 May 2019. All objections must be received by the adjudicator on or before 15 May 2019, at: The Office of the Schools Adjudicator Mowden Hall, Staindrop Road, Darlington, DL3 9BG Tel: 0870 0012468 Fax: 01325 391313
