Our admission number approved for the year 2023/24 is 20.


In the event that school is over subscribed then preference to admission will be given in accordance with County Policy, which can be found in the 'General Information for Parents' booklet'. 


During the Summer term, you will be invited to bring your child into school. This will enable you to meet your child's Class teacher and ask any relevant questions, which may not have been answered in the School Prospectus and Website.


We want to make starting school a happy time and hope that this gradual transition will enable your child to settle at the beginning of the Autumn term.
