Admissions

The school serves the villages of Greens Norton, Slapton, Duncote and Bradden.

Children can be admitted in the Autumn Term after their fourth birthday.

However, there is no legal obligation for parents to send their child before the statutory school age (the term following their fifth birthday).

Parents and children are welcome to look around the school prior to admission. It would be helpful if parents telephoned to make an appointment. We generally hold two open school sessions in the Autumn term for prosepective parents to look around the school and answer any questions. See the sidebar for these dates.

Before your child is admitted to the reception class we invite parents to an evening meeting when we explain our curriculum and general organisation. It also affords us the opportunity to discuss any personal worries that parents may have and for the reception class teacher to suggest ways in which parents can best help their child as they begin their school career.

In order to ease the transition from home to school our new entrants are invited into school during the second half of the preceding Summer Term so that they can meet their teacher and begin to become familiar with their classroom and the school.
