As Voluntary Controlled School Federation, we follow the Norfolk County Council policy for first admissions to school which is as follows:
By law children must start statutory education full time at the beginning of the term following their fifth birthday. Where admission is offered prior to compulsory school age, parents may defer their child’s entry into school until later in that academic year.
For Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools, children born between 1st September and the end of February may start school full time at the beginning of the autumn term before their fifth birthday.
Children born between the 1st March and 31st August, may start school full time from September or, if parents prefer, part time at the beginning of the autumn term before their fifth birthday and full time at the beginning of the spring term before their fifth birthday.
If there are more applications for places than there are places available, the Local Education Authority will give preference to children living nearest the school according to the following criteria in this order of priority:
