Reception Admissions


Admissions –Reception

There are 60 Reception places at St. Andrew and St Francis CE Primary School. Each class is staffed with a Class Teacher and a Teaching Assistant.

Children admitted to the Reception, start school in the Autumn Term in a staggered intake system for a number week. During their first week, children stay for morning sessions only, and we ask that parents/carers stay with them to ease their settling in.

An induction meeting for entry into the Reception class is held each Summer Term of the year of admission in order that pupils and parents can meet the Reception Teachers and Teaching Assistants. At this meeting, details of the staggered entry system into the Reception year will be made available to parents
