Admission Policy



Children can enter the foundation unit the term after their third birthday when we offer a part-time place.

We try to meet parents request for places because of other childcare arrangements. The unit operates a 39 full time place equivalent.

We have two foundation units, they work in collaboration with each other, planning, assessing and sharing teaching space and resources. The staffing ratio at the moment is 1 to 12. Children are placed in the same setting as those foundation children who attend full time.

Children are invited for a visit with their parents the term prior to them starting.


From the September in the year of the child's fifth birthday the child attends full-time in the same foundation setting. This provides for the continuity of learning.

Key Stage 1

Children transfer to a class within Key Stage 1 at the end of the Foundation Stage. This is a smooth transition for the children as they know the staff, and as we work as a whole school, they are involved in many mainstream activities.

At the moment key stage 1 is arranged into two Year 1 classes and two Year 2 classes, providing class sizes of approximately 25. The children have access to whole class teaching, small group work and individual work. They are supported in their learning by teachers, teaching assistants and initial teacher training students. We also encourage parental help.

Key Stage 2

Lower Key Stage 2 have four classes. Two Year 3 class and two Year 4 classes. Upper Key Stage 2 have two Year 5 classes and two Year 6 classes.

Key Stage Leaders support all year groups.
