Before your child is admitted to the reception class we invite parents to an evening meeting when we explain our curriculum and general organisation. It also affords us the opportunity to discuss any personal worries that parents may have and for the reception class teacher to suggest ways in which parents can best help their child as they begin their journey through school.
West Northamptonshire County Council (the Local Authority) co-ordinates applications for places in this School; follow the links below for information about the school admissions process and important dates and deadlines:
