Admissions 2021-2022 for EYFS (reception) Children
The closing date for applications for a reception school place for your child is 15th January 2021.  If your child has an EHCP, then the closing date is 31st October 2020.
National offer day takes place in April and parents are notified by Telford and Wrekin Council if they have been offered a place at our school.  We then post letters and forms to our families to arrival later that month/early May.  We also put copies on the website so you can keep up to date that way. 
In-year admissions

If you are thinking of sending your child to our school as part of an in-year transfer from another school, please complete the Telford and Wrekin Council In Year Transfer form, which is on the T&W website.

Upon receipt of an application form from the Admission's Department, we complete and return this to them within 5 school days (term time only) wherever possible.  They then notify parents of the outcome of their application (within 15 school days of the application being received from the parent wherever possible).  If you would like your child to join our school, please follow the links below to the Telford and Wrekin Council website (link above).

Due to Covid-19 we are unable to hold visits to our school for prospective parents.  Our EYFS/Y1 Phase Leader has created this on-line presentation to give you an insight into EYFS.

In the folder below we've also added a video of the children in the classroom.

In all year groups, places are offered to applicants in order of the published over subscription criteria detailed in the primary school booklet on Telford and Wrekin Council's website, and as per our current Admissions Policy.
