North Yorkshire County Council has an early admission policy whereby schools may admit from September of any school year, any child who will be five years old during that school year.
The policy which best suits our school and meets our needs is to admit rising fives once a year in September. These children would have their birthday between September 1st and August 31st of the current academic year.
The school’s admission limit for all year groups is currently set at 10 pupils by the Governing Body.
Parents of Reception aged children are responsible for obtaining and completing a preference form which is available online at www.northyorks.gov.uk/admissions. If you do not have access to the internet you can obtain a paper copy of the common application form from the admissions team on 01609 533679.
During the summer term before the children are due to start school they are invited with their parents to visit their classroom and to meet the staff and children. The arrangement is always flexible, with your child’s feelings of security and happiness of prime concern. When we know of your wish to send your child to our school, we will be contacting you to arrange visits. The Reception teacher in school visits the children in their pre-school settings to see them operating in a familiar environment during the summer term prior to them starting school.
