St Andrew's C of E Primary School

Inspiring children to achieve their personal best


Admission to school

Subject to the availability of places within the published number intended to admit, it is the policy of the governors to admit the children of all parents who opt for their children to be educated at the school.


The school´s admissions policy states that there is one intake in September for the first year of schooling.


Parents wishing for their children to be admitted to the school should make an initial visit to the school and should contact the Local Authority. The School Business Manager, Mrs Cornwell, can provide parents with the appropriate contact numbers.


Arrangements for Parents to visit the School

Arrangements can be made to visit the school by appointment with the Headteacher, who will always be pleased to spend time with parents, show them the school, and provide any additional information which may be required.


Parents of new entrants will be invited by letter to bring their children for several sessions, normally on Wednesday mornings, in the half term prior to their admission; the last session will be a full day. This will provide children with the opportunity to meet their teacher, spend time working with him/her and learn a little of the routine of the school. Children may like to stay for school lunch on the full day session.
