Return to Prospectus

Our school runs a full range of highly effective admission and induction programmes so that parents are fully informed and children feel very confident about joining our school.

Admission Into Nursery:


Our Nursery caters for children from the age of two. Admission forms are available from school and visits are always welcomed. Once your child has a confirmed place within our Nursery classes a full programme of induction for parents and pupils begins. This programme which includes presentations for parents, visit days for pupils and parents and many opportunities for children to work with their new teachers is enjoyed and valued by all.


Admission into Reception Class:


Children are normally admitted to our Reception Classes in the September following their fourth birthday. In addition to links with our own Nursery we have close links with all other local playgroups and pre-school providers to ensure a smooth transition into school for all children.

We serve the village of Peasedown St. John and the surrounding areas. Parents are welcome to place their children’s names on our admission list at anytime. Places are limited and we advise early registration. If a year group is over subscribed the LA Appeal Procedure is followed. Once your child has a confirmed place within our Reception classes a full programme of induction for parents and pupils begins. This programme which includes presentations for parents, visiting days for pupils and parents and many opportunities for children to work with their new teachers is enjoyed and valued by all.


Admission to other classes in our school:


As the village of Peasedown St. John has grown over recent years we are used to welcoming new children of all ages into our classes. Older children often visit with their parents before starting at our school. Please telephone for an appointment.

This information is available as Parent Guide No.7. A full copy of the admission policies are available on our website or from school.
