Admissions Procedure for EYFS
Entry to our Early Years Foundation Stage is normally by a session visit and a meeting with the Early Years Manager. Our nursery feeds our Reception class therefore it is assumed that pupils joining will be going through to Reception and subsequently into the Pre-Prep and Junior department. Please note that deposits will be refunded at the end of the Reception year, provided the correct notice has been given, unless the school did not allow transition from the nursery to Reception, in which case deposits will be refunded at the end of the academic year during which the child was in Kestrels (the Pre-School.)
Entry to the Reception Class is normally by a day’s assessment and a meeting with the Deputy Headteacher Junior School or Headteacher. Priority is given to pupils within our own Nursery Department but there are usually spaces for children from other nurseries. Entry from our nursery to Reception (L1) is not automatic because we have to ensure that we can cater for the needs of all pupils, keep an appropriate balance of abilities within the class and be certain that all pupils will be able to access the curriculum.
