Reception Admissions

Prospective parents are welcome to register their child with the school and be placed on a Record of Interest list. We must specify that this does not count as an application.

Parents can admit an application to their own council the autumn before their child is due to start school. Reception pupils are normally admitted to school the September after their 4th birthday. Parents will receive notification of allocated places around April time. Registering your interest will ensure that you receive notification of our prospective parent open evening. Alternatively, please feel free to make an appointment to visit and have a look around.

Once places have been finalised the Reception class teacher will contact parents to arrange a Home Visit. This enables the children to meet with their new teacher in an informal atmosphere. In May/June the children will then be invited into school for a Transition Day which will give them the chance to experience a normal school day and meet up with their new class mates. Towards the end of the summer term parents will be invited to a separate meeting to inform them of the Early Years curriculum and how their child will learn through play. 

Years 1 - 6 Admissions

Parents of older children, moving into the area, are welcome to make an appointment to visit the school. As with entry into Reception, all applications for places are dealt with by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council Admissions Dept.
