If you would like your child to join our school you must first contact the County Admissions team on 01223 699200, but please feel free to make an appointment to come and look around.
Children can be admitted to our Nursery at the start of the term following their third birthday. Admissions are dealt with by school and forms can be collected from the school office along with our Nursery booklet which provides additional information. We have 25 morning places with two kept for children referred through the Student Assessment Service or via Health and Social Services.
The school year runs from 1st September until the 31st August. Children are admitted to our Reception class at the beginning of the school year in which they become five. Parents have the opportunity to meet the Reception staff during the previous year and children spend time in school at the end of the Summer term. The first three weeks are part time to ease pupils into full time schooling. Due to children arriving from a range of settings we review the Reception classes at the end of the year to ensure an equal distribution of need.
You are required to register by the end of April, by returning the admissions form to the Local Authority Admissions Team. Forms are obtainable at the school office.
Children joining after the beginning of term or from other schools are carefully monitored to ensure they settle as quickly as possible.
Parents and carers are always welcome to look round the school before deciding on admission.
Colville Speech and Language Centre
The Colville Speech and Language Centre is housed within the main school buildings. The centre has sixteen full time places for children with statements of special educational needs that have severe speech and language difficulties. The children are referred to the centre through Student Assessment Service.
The children that attend the centre integrate with the rest of the school during afternoon lessons and for trips and events that occur during the year.
