When do children start school?

All children whose fifth birthday falls within the next school year (1st September – 31st August ) will be admitted in the September of the year that they are five.

In order to ease the transition between home and / or nursery and playgroup and school, we invite children who are starting school the following term to visit us in the preceding term. The children have an opportunity to meet staff and they become familiar with the school routines and with what will be expected of them when they begin school. This reduces anxiety levels about a new experience and in many cases leads to eagerness to begin school immediately!
