Admissions

Children start in the Reception class in the academic year in which they are five. The school admission number, as set by the Local Authority, is 60 for the Reception classes. Places are normally provided for all those living within the catchment area. If parents from outside the catchment choose our school, places are allocated on the basis of availability.

To apply for a place at school parents need to fill in a preference form which is available to fill in online at: www.northyorks.gov.uk/primaryadmissions 

In the half term prior to admission, arrangements are made for children to spend some time in the Reception class. This will familiarise the children with new routines, facilities and faces. In addition, we hold a “New Parents’ Evening” for parents of children joining our Reception class. At this meeting the Head Teacher and Reception class teachers are able to offer information and answer questions, as well as offer the opportunity to have a look around the school and see the class in which their child will be working.

We provide flexible starting arrangements for children who transfer to us mid-year from another school, in order to meet the needs of individual children. This will usually involve an opportunity to look round and spend some time in school before starting.
