Admissions to Nursery

A child can be admitted into a nursery class at either the start of the term following the child’s third birthday or the day the child is 3 years old. This will ensure that children will have at least 3 terms in nursery education prior to entry into reception class of a mainstream school. Consistent attendance on a regular basis is expected of all children.

It should be noted that admissions to any nursery even those attached to a school does not guarantee admission to the reception class of a particular school. Parents must follow normal procedures when applying for full-time education.

Please see our Nursery School Admissions Policy for more information.

The LA has delegated the admissions of nursery children to the governors who will consider applications in age order with the oldest children being given priority.

Admissions to Main School

Most children start at our school in the school year that they will be turning 5 years old (1st September – 31st August). This is called the Reception Year and is part of the Foundation Stage.

If your child’s birthday is between:-

  • 1st Sept 2016 – 31st Aug 2017 – Start School Sept 2021
  • 1st Sept 2017 – 31st Aug 2018 – Start School Sept 2022

  • 1st Sept 2019 – 31st Aug 2020 – Start School Sept 2024

The main school has the following year groups:

  • Foundation Stage
    • Reception classes (4-5 years old) – two classes
  • Key Stage 1
    • Year 1 classes (5-6 years old) – two classes
    • Year 2 classes (6-7 years old) – two classes

The Governing Body is now the admission authority for this school and determines its own admission criteria. Please see below for the admission criteria for 2020/21 and 2021/22.  The school uses Surrey County Council to manage admissions and to find up to date information about the school’s admission arrangements and details on how to apply, either as part of the normal intake or during the school year, please use this link to the Surrey County Council website.
