In Year admissions


If you move to the village or surrounding are (or you wish to move your child from another school to this one) then please contact the school directly. It is recommended that you visit the school with your child to assess whether it is suitable and this also gives you an opportunity to meet the headteacher.


Admissions to Reception class


First admissions to the school are organised through Suffolk County Council. We have adopted the Suffolk County Council policy for admissions which can be found here Suffolk County Council admissions. The over subscription criteria for the school also follow Suffolk County Council's policy. If the school receives more applications than it can accept then an appeal procedure is followed - if you are refused a place at the school please contact the school office and ask to speak to the Head of School about an admission refusal.


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.
