We are a 210 place school, with up to 30 children admitted each year.
All admissions into the school are co-ordinated by South Gloucestershire Council. Families are always welcome to visit the school to look around and ask any questions they may have – please contact the school office to make an appointment. Further information on how to apply for a place at the school is available from the school office or visit South Gloucestershire admissions.
We make thorough preparations to ensure children arriving into our Reception Class make a successful start to their time with us. Working closely with pre-schools, we visit the children at their nursery, as well as organize a visit for them to school. This gives the children a chance to meet their class teacher and become familiar with their classroom. There will also be a meeting arranged to give parents or carers the opportunity to meet the class teacher and ask any questions they may have.
In September, a staggered start operates allowing children to become settled in smaller groups and get to know the school routines. It is expected that children will be attending full-time by the end of September. We have followed these procedures for a number of years now and have found them to be successful in producing happy, confident children who are ready and able to succeed in school.
