Children will enter our school either at the start of the academic year in our Reception classes, or for other year groups through the In-Year Transfer process.

For Reception Children Starting In September.

Invites will be sent out for children and parents to attend a number of "Stay and Play" sessions in June. Children will also get the chance to attend their New Class Morning and stay for lunch in July.

A parent meeting where parents will find out their childs class and teacher will also be held in the July. At the meeting important information such as uniform, lunch, attendance and admission arrangements wil be given. Parents will also be told about the daily routines in the Reception classes. There will also be presentations from other professionals such as our School Nurse, Education Welfare Officer (EWO) and After School Club provider, PortalKids.

For Children Entering School Through The In-Year Transfer Process

Parents will attend a meeting with the School Business Manager where all key information is given to support the smooth induction of your child. A copy of your childs birth certificate or passport will be needed for this meeting.

All children entering our school In-Year (Mid year) will be required to attend an induction session before starting. They will join their new class for a short session whilst the parent attends the meeting with the School Business Manager.
