In Year Admissions

Admission Procedure

We hold a series of open sessions for both FS1 (Nursery) and FS2 (Reception) during the year. 

Our FS2 (Reception) open sessions are usually held around November in advance of the deadline for admissions to Primary School.  You are shown around the school by our Year 6 pupils and have the opportunity to speak to the Head Teacher and Foundation Stage Team Leader.

We hold FS1 (Nursery) open sessions depending on demand. FS1 pupils are visited at home by the Nursery staff and offered the opportunity to ‘stay and play’ ahead of taking up a place. 

Please contact the school office to leave your details so that we can send you an invitation to attend the relevant open sessions once dates have been finalised. 

Appeals Procedure

Parents and carers may appeal against the Trust’s decision not to offer their child a place at the school. The appeals are arranged by North Yorkshire Council. Appeals submitted for a Reception place, for a child to start school at the beginning of the academic year in September 2023, will need to be received by North Yorkshire Council's deadline to guarantee being heard before the new school year starts (see below link).
