Once you have completed the in-year admission form and sent it to school, you and your child will be welcomed to an induction meeting and tour of the school with the Headteacher.
Additionally, to ensure that your child's admission to school is as smooth as possible,
and so that they can get to meet their teacher, we meet with each child at home before they start school. At this meeting we can answer any questions you may have, help you fill out any supplementary information that the school needs about your child and confirm your child's start date.
Should you have any questions regarding admissions, then please contact Laura Symons in the school office.
