Home School Link Admissions
You will be contacted at the end of the Spring term prior to your child starting school and invited to make both formal and informal visits to the school. We will explain how your child will be introduced to the school, the class teacher and their classmates.
Applications for places for older children and for new arrivals into the school's catchment area may be made at any time via the Hampshire County Council Admissions' Team and by visiting the school. Where there is a space, places will be allocated according to the admissions policy.
For Year R pupils and with the agreement of the parents, the class teacher and assistant like to visit the children in their own home at the start of the Autumn term.
This gives the parents and child the opportunity to get to know the teacher and to recognise familiar faces when the child starts school. It also gives the parents a chance to talk to the teacher on home ground and to ask any questions about this important time in their child's life.
It is expected that before being admitted children will:
• be able to use the toilet independently (and usually be dry during the day)
• have some independence in dressing and feeding themselves
• be able to communicate their needs
• be able to cope with the demands of a school setting
