Under Suffolk LA Admissions Policy there is a single admission date each year in September, for children whose fifth birthday falls between 1 September and 31 August. Children may be admitted into the Reception class full-time or half time, from the beginning of the Autumn term. It is possible to ‘stagger’ the start to school for children born in Spring or Summer. Please contact school or admission office for more details. Children must legally attend school full-time in the term following their fifth birthday, the national statutory school age. The Current P.A.N. for the School is 30.
Our Reception teacher makes opportunity each Summer term for children to visit the school. She also makes visits to other nursery pre-school providers. Children who attend Rougham Acorns Pre-School will have opportunities to visit the school in the term before they start school.
The County Council is responsible for admissions to the school. The admissions policy, procedures and Suffolk’s co-ordinated admission schemes are set out in L.A publication “Schools in Suffolk‟ (available from Suffolk County Council). Children joining our school other than in the September intake must now put their applications to the Local Authority rather than directly to the school.
To apply for a primary school place for the 2017/2018 school year you need to apply by midnight on Sunday 15th January 2017.
