Admissions to Reception in September 2024

If you would like to apply for a place in Reception in September 2024 (for children born between 1st September 2019 and 31st August 2020) then you must apply online by the 15th January 2024. If you apply after this date then it will be classed as a late application by Kirklees and it is unlikely you will get your first choice of school. 

My child is very young and I don't think they're ready for school yet

If your child is classed as 'summer born', which is if their birthday falls between April 1st and August 31st, and you do not feel they are emotionally or physically ready to start school in September, you now have two options. 

1. You can request that your child attends part-time for the Autumn and Spring terms and goes full time when the summer term starts (this is after the Easter Holidays), or

2. You can ask for your child to remain at a Nursery for another year (you will still receive the free funding for 15 or 30 hours) and then apply for a place in Reception or Year One to start the following September. If you choose to apply for Reception then your child will be the oldest in the class and will not miss out on their play-based curriculum year. If you choose to apply for Year One your child will be one of the youngest in the class and they will start formal National Curriculum teaching straight away.

Either option could be the right one for your child. If you want to talk about it before making your choice then just give us a call and we will discuss the pros and cons of both approaches with you. Alternatively, you can contact Kirklees admissions for further information.

If you would like to visit the school before you submit your application then please call the school office on 01924 460969 to make an appointment.
