Starting school is a big step in your child's life. Whether your child is transferring from another school or starting school for the first time, we understand that this can be both exciting and unsettling.
We will support both you and your child to make their start to school life a happy and enjoyable time.
Please do come and visit our school and meet our staff team and children, who will be more than happy to give you a tour of our lovely school, answer any questions, and give you an insight into life at North Cadbury 😊.
Is your child due to start school in September 2024, or are you looking to move schools during the academic year?
We would love to invite you to come and visit our warm and friendly school. Please contact the school office and arrange a suitable time for your visit.
If you want to move your child mid year please contact the school office (firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01963 440420) to book a suitable time to visit and discuss your requirements.
Children join school during the academic year that they are five. To apply for a place, an application form must be completed. Starting school applications must be made to the Local Authority. The closing date for reception year applications for September 2024 is 15 January 2024.
