Admissions & Prospectus

Anyone considering applying to join our school is warmly invited to contact the school office to make an appointment to visit the school, meet the Head Teacher and see our learning in action. We hold our Open Evening each October, for 2017 this year it was Tuesday 17th October, and our Open Day for prospective parents was also Tues 17th October 10am-2pm. As this date has now passed we would be very happy to make an appointment to show you round our lovely school. This will enable prospective parents for Reception 2018 and if your child is in Year 1 we also have places available in that year group. This is not simply an opportunity for prospective parents to view our school, but a genuine invitation to all current parents, prospective parents and members of our community to visit us and see us in action. Children from Year 6 provide guided tours throughout the evening. Our Head Teacher and Governors are also on hand to answer questions and discuss their strategic role. Individual visits can arrange at any time through the year, please contact our Business Manager Maria Tillett if you would like to make an appointment. We are proud of our school and enjoy sharing our successes with prospective parents, so do please come and see our learning in action.

As a Local Authority School prospective parents should contact the local authority to find out more about the schools admission arrangements.

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 on Mon 16th April 2018.

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.
