Entry Into Reception Class

We have one intake each year at the start of the Autumn Term. Our maximum intake is 30 children per year group. Reception pupils are normally admitted to school in the September following their 4th birthday. Prospective parents are most welcome to make an appointment to look around our school.

Parents are usually asked to complete preference forms in the autumn of the year before the child starts school. Places are allocated in the late spring/early summer term. 


Entry into Nursery

Children are able to start Nursery the term after their third birthday. School holds admissions information and registers for Nursery children. If you would like to place your child's name on the Nursery admissions list, please telephone the school office. Places are allocated quickly so please place your child's name on the list to avoid disappointment.  


Entry into Years 1 – 6 

Parents of older children moving into the area, are welcome to make an appointment to visit the school and to discuss admission with the Headteacher. As with entry into Reception, all applications for places are dealt with by WMDC Admissions Team.
