Before we offer a child a place at our school, we meet the prospective pupil, meet with parents and show them around the school. This is an excellent opportunity to really get a feel for the school and to meet the headteacher or head of nursery (if you are looking for a place in our Nursery).
The number of places is strictly limited in order to maintain small class sizes. Parents are advised to submit applications for a place as early as possible to avoid disappointment. If a class is full, parents may put their child on a waiting list. Subject to the availability of places, children may be admitted into the school at any time, where they will be placed in the appropriate year group according to their age.
Where places are available children may be admitted into the correct age group for the class at any time of the year.
Prior to being offered a place to join the school or nursery parents must complete a registration form and pay a registration fee of £50.
Please note for a place in the school (not nursery) once a place has been offered to your child you will be required to secure your child’s place with a £500 deposit. This will be returned to you at the end of your child’s last term in the school.
Before your child starts in the nursery or the school, we will also request from you the following important information:
- Name, home address and date of birth of each child
- Start date
- Name, address and telephone numbers of parents or guardians
- Emergency telephone numbers of parents or guardians
- Special dietary needs
- Name, address and telephone number of the child’s doctor
- Illness and inoculation details
- Details of any allergies
- Parental consent on emergency procedures
Parents or guardians will also be asked to provide the nursery or the school with any further information which they feel will enable us to take that best possible care of their children.
If your child is transferring from another school then we will at this point request your child’s school file from their current school and a short report from their current classteacher.
