School Admissions

Parents and carers considering applying to the school can arrange a visit to view the school. If you would like to do this, please contact the school office who will arrange a time for you to be shown around during the normal school day.

Children become eligible for Nursery following their third birthday as soon as places become available. Places in Nursery are allocated on date of birth order and priority is given to those living in the local area with a WV postcode and those with siblings in school. Allocation of a place in Nursery does not automatically guarantee a full-time place in school.

Separate admission arrangements, administered through the Local Authority, are in operation for allocation of places in full-time education. Children to be admitted in Reception need to be 5 by the end of their first academic school year, i.e. date of birth 1st September - 31st August. An application pack will be sent out, in good time, to allow you to select an order of preference for the school which you would like your child to attend.
