Joining our School

September 2021

Please click here to view our school brochure.

For children who will be four on or before 31st August 2020, you will receive a brochure and school details for the schools in your local authority.  If you live in a neighbouring authority (e.g. County Durham), this does not exclude you from nominating our school as your school of preference but you must still apply using your local authority website. 

To help you to make your decision, we would usually hold an Open Afternoon during the Autumn Term. This is specifically for parents who do not know the school and are wanting to make a preliminary visit before deciding on the school of their choice. It does not affect the application process at all. 

This year, however, the continuing COVID-19 restrictions have meant that we have been unable to hold this meeting or invite families in to look around.  We are very aware of just how important this is for parents and children and so,  while we are unable to show you around our Foundation Stage classroom in person, we have put together a short video which we hope will give you an insight into life in Reception at our school.  Please click below to view:

Please follow precisely the guidance in the booklet provided by the Local Authority. Your application is acknowledged by email.
