From September 2011 all reception age children in Dorset started school in a Reception class on a full-time basis.   In some instances deferred admission may be agreed, after full consultation with the Headteacher.  To enable children to become familiar with their classteacher we split the classes into two for their first two weeks in school.  Children will attend either morning or afternoon sessions for those two weeks and then attend full time from week three.

Children are admitted to the Nursery in the September of the academic year in which they are age four.

Applications for a place in a Reception class are made through Dorset Council’s School Admissions Team.  Click here to access the Council’s admissions process.   Applications are made from 1 September for the following academic year.  Please speak to office staff for more information.
