1. Policy and Numbers

 

Admission to Nursery

Children will be admitted into the Early Years Unit, operating a nursery admission policy (in the term following their Second birthday) to meet each child’s needs in consultation with parents, pre-school placements and support services, where applicable, and pre-school assessments. Priority is given to siblings of pupils who are already in the Nursery or in the main school.

 

Admission to School

Priority will be given to children whose fifth birthday occurs during the educational year in question.  Children will be admitted into the Reception Class full time from the beginning of the autumn term unless alternative agreement is reached.

 

All children must be in full-time education the term after their 5th birthday. From September 2007 the school adopted the Norfolk County Council’s Admission Policy.
