Foundation Stage (Reception)

 

We admit all children into Foundation Stage in September each year. They start part time only for the first two weeks of the Autumn Term.

 

Admission procedures

 

Parents who would like their children to attend this school should contact Mrs Nicola Thrower in the school office and she will give further details about the admission process. You can also make an appointment to visit the school. Admission forms need to be sent to the Allocations Department at County Hall.

 

More information about applying for a school place can be found on the School Admissions pages of the Leicestershire County Council website.

 

Children’s visits

 

Children starting in Foundation Stage will be offered the chance to visit the school a few times before their start date. This certainly helps them to start school with confidence.

 

Children who are transferring from other schools will also appreciate the chance to get to know some children, staff and the building before they transfer. We will arrange visits wherever this is possible for you.
