110 years (plus) of education in Stillington. What a fantastic event. It was lovely to see so many familiar faces from the village. A huge thank you to Liz Cole for organising the main talk & resources.

Admissions Policy

Our admissions policy is as follows:

A child will normally start school in the academic year of their 5th birthday. Children who were born between the 1st September and the 31st August the following year are eligible to be admitted to school in September.

However, parents can request that the date their child is admitted to the school is deferred until later in the school year or until the child reaches compulsory school age (compulsory school age is the term of their child’s fifth birthday) in that school year.

Please note that parents are not able to defer entry beyond the beginning of the term after the child’s fifth birthday, nor beyond the academic year for which the original application was accepted.

Parents have the right to request full or part time provision from day 1, if they wish. We aim to consider the needs of each child and would hope that the appropriate provision was made (and reviewed if necessary) following discussions with parents and previous settings.

All children must be full time by compulsory school age.

To ease the transition into school life the children are invited to make short visits to the reception class during the half term prior to admission. On these occasions the children will be invited to spend a morning or afternoon in school to become familiar with the setting and adults who they will be working with.

During these sessions the children will take part in the regular procedures of registration, working routines, classroom arrangements, storage and the use of activities, the use of different areas, playtime, use of the cloakroom and toilets.

During the first term in school the children will be assessed according to the Foundation Stage Profile.

During the first half term an interview will be arranged with the parents to re-evaluate the information gleaned during the transition process and in the light of the child’s first weeks in school. Curriculum matters of a specific nature can also be addressed at this time if appropriate.

We aim to make starting school a positive process for all children and parents.
