The school has a current roll of 53 children, with classes of mixed age and ability, composed of both boys and girls.

Children are admitted into the Reception year group, as far as possible, at the beginning of the school year after their fourth birthday.  The school year starts on 1st September.  Admissions criteria and arrangements are aligned to the Local Authority admissions policy. 

The school also provides a number of spaces for children to access their funded nursery entitlement.  This is offered as up to 30 hours.  Sessions are available as either half day (8.45-11.45 or 12.00-3.00), or full day (8.45-3.00) blocks.  There may be some scope for a portion of the 30-hours entitlement to be taken as ‘wraparound’ to extend the care beyond the school day.  Parents are encouraged to speak to the school about their individual requirements. 

Children are eligible for a nursery place from the term after their 3rd birthday.  Places are allocated in the order of admissions applications received.

For additional information please see the attached Admissions Policy.
