The formal process of applying for a place at our school starts during the Autumn term prior to the child’s entry into the Reception year. Information and application forms are available from the school office. Please contact the school for information about applying for a place outside this admission process.

Children normally start school at Barncroft Primary in the September following their fourth birthday. We try to make the transition from Pre-school to school as stress free as possible. This starts with members of the Reception year staff visiting you at home so that when the time comes for your child to start school you won’t be handing them over to a complete stranger. 

We believe that the relationship between the school and the children’s parents is a very important one and for that reason the Headteacher and class teachers are always available to discuss any problems which may arise.
