Children coming into reception year are admitted to school in September of the school year when they have their 5th birthday (i.e. between 1st September and 31st August).

During the summer term each year, we hold open afternoons for the September intake for reception and Nursery and there are also various opportunities for parents and new children to come into school to help with the settling in process.
