We are an approved cohort entry school. Cohort entry is when new entrants start school in groups through the year rather than on their fifth birthday. They can start on the first cohort date after their fifth birthday or on any other cohort date up until they turn six.
When you contact the school you will be given teh cohort entry dates for your child.

Getting ready for school
Make contact with the school if you are interested in enrolling your child. We'll walk you through the process and provide more information. We'll encourage you to come and visit the school, take a look around, and to meet your child's prospective teachers.
If your child is starting school for the first time we run a special transition to school programme to make their start as successful as possible. We can tell you more about this when you contact us.
Other useful information
If you are interested in enrolling at the school, please take time to have a look through the website. This will help provide you with information on our educational beliefs and practices as well as general information about the school.
