Our children are all in single year-group classes in the mornings and in the afternoons, we currently have a mixed FS2/Year 1 class and a mixed Year 1/Year 2 class. All KS2 children are currently in single year-group classes. We try to keep each of these under 30 wherever we can. Our pupil admission number (PAN) is 30 and our capacity is 210.

Foundation Stage 2 pupils are admitted into our school in the September following their 4th birthday. The children who join our school come from a wide variety of pre-school settings, so to ensure a smooth transition we set up opportunities for them to visit, and for our FS2 Teacher to visit the children in their setting. We hold an Induction Meeting for new parents in the summer term to introduce key members of staff and outline the provision of our school.
During the first week in school, our reception pupils attend during the morning session only in order to acclimatise them into the school routine.
Transferring from another school (In-year Admissions)
Children sometimes transfer to our school from another school. If you wish your child to transfer from another school to us you need to contact Nottinghamshire County Council Admissions on 0300 500 8080 to apply for a school place or visit https://www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/education/school-admissions/changing-school
We invite all new pupils to visit the school and we will arrange an appointment so that you can accompany your child on a tour of the school and answer any queries that you may have.
