Early Years Children – September intake

Our planned admission number in mainstream is 30.

We strongly recommend a visit prior to completing your application form. Please call 01380 725234 to arrange an appointment. We look forward to meeting you and showing you our school.

The deadline for applications is 15th January of the year in which your child is due to start school for the first time.

Please be very clear on your application regarding the admissions criteria. Appeals against an admission will be based solely on the information you have provided.

The school cannot legally admit more than 30 pupils (unless highly exceptional circumstances).  

Appeals for EYFS places cost the school a significant amount of money each year to hold.

You must apply via Wiltshire Council on: Admissions

If you wish your child to defer their start it is a slightly different process. For further information can be found on the Wiltshire Council website:

We can only offer places if we have fewer than 30 children in the class, except in exceptional circumstances.  Please call the headteacher to discuss if you believe this might be the case. All applications are made through Wiltshire Council. You must apply for a place before you can go on the waiting list.

Complex Needs Resource Base

We have a 28 place unit

Children wishing to attend the Complex Needs Resource Base must be allocated their place by the Council and they must have an EHCP which specifically names our Resource Base. If you wish to discuss this further then please contact Mrs Kirsty Newlove (Complex Needs Resource Base Manager).
