Admissions

Arranging a Visit

Parents are more than welcome to visit the school to meet the headteacher, staff and children and to look round the school. Each year we have an open morning for prospective parents but if you would also like an individual tour of the school please telephone to make an appointment.

Applying for a place at the school

Children approaching school age:

Children can begin school in the September following their fourth birthday. Children can start on a full-time or part-time (mornings only) basis from September that year, as indicated below, but must be in school full-time in the term following their fifth birthday. Parents may defer entry to later in the academic year.

This year applications must be made on line to the admission office as well as completing a supplementary form from the school office. Both have to be completed and submitted by 15th January. If you have trouble accessing a computer for this purpose please enquire at the local library or at the school office, both of whom will be happy to help you. The Admissions Committee of the Governing Body allocate places following our policy, a copy of which is on the next page.

Children already of school age (i.e. transferring from another school):

You will be asked to complete an online application form on the West Sussex County Council website:

Help is available from the school office should you need it. If there is a place available, your child can then be admitted without delay. If a place is not available, you will be given information about how to proceed.
