ADMISSIONS ARRANGEMENTS FOR 2021/22
Do you have a child due to start school in September 2021, or do you need to move schools in the academic year?
Ordinarily we would invite you to come and visit our friendly school, and would arrange a number of Open Afternoons to show you around, however in this current climate we need to ensure that we minimise risk to our children. Fortunately most of our children starting school start in our Nursery & Pre-School - Sprites, so their transition into school is seamless and risk free.
If you want to move your child mid year please contact the school office (email@example.com or call 01963 440420) to book a suitable time to visit once our children have gone home for the day.
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 2021 is 15 January 2021.
If you are looking to change schools or are moving into our area, you are also welcome to visit. In-year application forms are available directly from the School.
If you wish to transfer your child to our school at any time during the academic year we would love to give you a tour, please just get in touch to arrange a Covid friendly visit.
Somerset Local Authority is responsible for co-ordinating all first admission applications (starting school). The Starting School booklet ‘A Guide for Parents’ is available on the Somerset County Council website. This sets out the primary admission application process and a range of information about all schools and academies in Somerset. School place applications can be made online at www.somerset.gov.uk/admissions or on paper application forms which must be returned to the School Admissions Team at Somerset County Council. These can be downloaded from the website address above or obtained by calling Somerset Direct on 0300 1232224. Parents are responsible for ensuring they make a school place application by the closing date which is 15 January each year.
The address for Somerset County Council Admissions Team is:
