Applying for a School Place

Applications for Year R 2022 Admissions open on 1st November 2021 and close on 15th January 2022.

We would like to invite prospective parents to visit us for a tour of our school and an opportunity to chat to staff on Thursday 21st October or Friday 5th November.

On each Open Morning we will run two sessions:

9.15am – 10.15am

10.30am – 11.30am

We ask prospective parents to arrive promptly for the start of their booked session for a welcome presentation in the school hall from the headteacher. This will be followed by an opportunity to tour the school and chat with staff. Each session must also end promptly to enable us to clean visited areas following our COVID-19 control measures.

Please note the following COVID-19 restrictions will be in place to protect both our visitors and our school community of children and staff.

  • We ask prospective parents to take a lateral flow test at home on the morning of their visit and only attend if the result is negative.
  • Please do not visit if you are unwell.
  • We ask visitors to wear masks during their visit unless they are medically exempt.
  • We will ask visitors to use sanitiser on entry to the school hall and at intervals around the building using the hands free, wall mounted dispensers in every corridor.
  • Visitors will not be permitted to enter classrooms, although doors will be open to enable viewing from the doorways. Visitors will be able to tour other areas including the grounds.
  • Numbers are strictly limited in each session and visitors will be split into smaller groups for tours of the site.
  • We are a very over-subscribed school, therefore, bookings are limited to two adults per child application. These can be split to suit work commitments with one booking at two different sessions.
  • We would normally welcome children to attend with an adult, however, due to the ongoing Covid measures we are unable to offer children the opportunity to visit at the moment. 
  • If you would like the opportunity to chat to a specific member of staff on your visit e.g our SENDCo or Family Support Worker please notify us at the time of booking and we will do our best to accommodate this.
  • If you are unable to attend your booked visit please let us know to enable us to offer your place to a prospective parent on the waiting list.
  • Please note – no booking – no entry!
