Reception

Please see below the information from our Reception Admissions Pack.

Reception Admission Pack



  • Intake Policy: The process for making an application to attend the school and notification for admission will be in accordance with the timetable set by the Local Education Authority. Though there is no statutory obligation for class size in Key Stage 2. The governing body recommends that class sizes, where possible, should not exceed 30. With the housing growth in Wymondham and pressure on school places we currently have class sizes up to 32 in Key Stage 2.

There will be 90 places offered at Reception, however, when there are more children requesting places than there are places available, the criteria for over subscription will be used.  Children will be admitted to the school at the time they enter at Reception or Year 3.

In the event of there being more applications for admission, than places available, the following criteria will be used to allocate such places as are available – and in this order of priority:

1. children with a statement of special educational needs naming this school.
2. looked after children.
3. children living within the school’s designated catchment area, who have a sibling attending the school at the time of admission.
4. children living within the school’s designated catchment area, who do not have a sibling attending the school at the time of admission.
5. children living outside the school’s designated catchment area, who have a sibling attending the school at the time of admission.
6. children living outside the school’s designated catchment area, who have a medical condition, for which attendance at the school is both desirable and supported by a doctor, in writing.
7. all other children.


In the event of a tie, between children within the same category living outside the school’s designated catchment area, allocation will be given to the child living nearest to the school and then to the child living next nearest to the school and so on, until all places are exhausted.

The distance between the child’s home and the school to be measured on Ordnance Survey maps, in a straight line (as the crow flies).

Parents of children living outside the school’s designated catchment area must provide to the school a written undertaking that they are wholly responsible for the transport of the child to and from school.

In-year admissions: Inquiries about admissions for other year-group children are most welcome, at any time. Please contact the school and ask about arranging a visit, we would love to show you round our school.
