Reception

In line with good practice in West Berkshire schools, we admit rising fives full-time at the beginning of the academic year in which they become five. Applications for admission into our Reception class are handled by West Berkshire Council and parents should complete an online application or collect an application form from their catchment school and return it by the closing date in January of the academic year before their child is due to start school. West Berkshire Admissions team will inform parents of their child’s school place in April

Information for New Reception Parents

We hold an induction evening for parents of our new Reception Class during the summer term before they start school. This provides an opportunity for parents to meet key staff and governors, collect further information and discuss any individual needs.

Induction Sessions

We encourage our new Reception children to attend planned induction sessions at the end of the Summer Term to help them to become familiar with school surroundings, meet members of staff and begin to form friendships with others starting school at the same time.

Starting School

Children often find their first few weeks at school very demanding, both physically and mentally, but our experienced staff plan for every child’s needs and our children settle quickly into school life. All of our new Reception children attend school full-time from the first week of term, although a phased entry can be devised to accommodate special needs when appropriate. Further information about School Admissions in West Berkshire is available on the

West Berkshire Council Website.
