starting school in reception
Children generally start school inthe autumn of the academic year in which they turn 5. We have a single class entry for Reception in September each year with a maximum of 30 places. Parents should make an online application to Warwickshire Admissions by mid January. Further details are avaiable on the WCC website at: https://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/applying-school-place-reception
In normal times we would invite prospective parents to visit school during the day to meet the Head Teacher and take a tour of the school to see it in action. However, with COVID restrictions in place we have had to modify these arrangements.
We would like to invite you to a meeting with the Head Teacher after school hours at 3.45pm and you will be able to view some areas of the school but as we have our after-school club running there will be some areas that are not accessible. We will also be uploading a virtual tour of school on our website in the near future.
We do hope you will be able to visit us and invite you to confirm a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday date which would be convenient for your visit. If you wish to call me to discuss further please do so.
If you are interested in your child joining our school maybe because you are moving house or wish you child to transfer from a different local school, please contact the office in the first instance to discuss if spaces are available in the year group. We would then arrange for you to visit school and meet the Head teacher for a tour round and to discuss your circumstances.
Requests for a place are then made online to Warwickshire Admissions via their website at :

Please follow the link on the right for information on our collection and use of your personal information under GDPR and read our Privacy Notice.
Please print these documents, keeping relevant pages for your reference, and return the completed and signed pages to school.
Although the Home School Agreement is not a compulsory document for your signature, it is compulsory that we offer it to you, and we feel that it is one of the ways we can help to forge good relationships between home and school.
Please provide the name and contact details of BOTH parents/guardians with formal parental responsibility for the child on the data collection sheet even if they do not live with the child.
The Education Act defines “parent” as
- All natural parents, whether they are married or not
- Any person who although not a natural parent, has parental responsibility for a child or young person
