Reception Intake September 2020

Is your child’s date of birth between1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016? 
If so you need to apply for a school place before 15 January 2020.
We would like to welcome you to look around our school.
We will be holding open sessions during November, dates will be published later in the year.

Admission to the Foundation Stage is in September of the academic year in which your child becomes five. West Berkshire Council handles all our applications for admissions.

We can admit up to 14 children into each year group. If there are more children applying than there are places available, preference will be given according to the criteria laid down by the education authority. Full information explaining the process is available on line at the West Berkshire Council website: West Berks Primary Admissions

You will be able to apply for a school place from the beginning of November each year online or by post. A refusal of admission is subject to a right of appeal.


Foundation Stage

The foundation stage curriculum concentrates on the skills and experiences children need to provide a solid base for later learning . All 'settings' follow the same curriculum which is rooted in activity and experiences. It is organised into areas of learning rather than traditional subjects. More information about the curriculum is available from school. We have a designated number of 14 children in each year group so the children get plenty of attention.


Other Admissions
If you are moving into the area, please contact us by telephone to enquire if we have space in your child's year group. Parents are welcome to visit by appointment with or without their child before making an application for admission. The application process is through West Berkshire Council.
