Reception children

We are holding an open morning for prospective Reception 2018 parents on Thursday 9th November 2017.  You are very welcome to come and look around the school and speak with the senior leadership team and the foundation stage teachers.  More information is HERE.

By law, children start school at the beginning of the term after their fifth birthday. In keeping with Cambridgeshire County Council policy, we offer education from September 2017 to children who will be turning five in the 2017/2018 academic year. We offer full-time education from September 2017 to any child for whom this is educationally and socially appropriate.

We admit pupils according to the Cambridgeshire County Council procedure:

  • Children who have a statement of special educational needs that names the school will be admitted. NB Those children with a statement of special educational needs that does not name the school will be referred to Student Assessment to determine an appropriate place.
  • Children in care – also known as Looked After Children (LAC)
  • Children living in the catchment area with a sibling at the school at the time of admission
  • Children living in the catchment area
  • Children living outside the catchment area who have a sibling at the school at the time of admission
  • Children living outside the catchment area who have been unable to gain a place at their catchment school because of oversubscription
  • Children who live outside the catchment area but nearest the school as measured by a straight line

In cases of equal merit in each set of criteria, priority will go to the children living nearest the school as measure by a straight line.

The allocation of primary school places takes place immediately after the closing date of January 15th each year.  Further details about admission procedures are to be found in ‘Primary Education – A Guide for Parents’, which is available on the Cambridgeshire County Council Admissions Information Website and a reference copy is also available in the School Office.  Parents are invited to visit the school one evening in the summer term prior to admission in order to meet the staff, visit the classrooms and ask questions.  Children are also invited to visit the school with their parents.

Other children

Children arriving during the course of the academic year are admitted according to the same criteria. Parents should contact the School Office and make an appointment with the headteacher to discuss admission.
