Admissions

 

We warmly welcome our prospective parents to visit our school on one of our Open Days or by appointment for In-Year Admissions.  Further details on the admission process are provided below.

Open Days and Visits

In Year Admissions

Whether your child is joining us for their first day of school, or starting with us in Year 6, we look forward to meeting each and every new pupil and their parents/carers at Wheatfield.  We are here to provide you with all the key information you need and support you and your child with the transition process.

We would recommend a visit to our school during term time, and in school hours, so that you can make the most of your visit.  We also like our new pupils to come in for a short introduction session with their new class and teacher; we feel this really helps them settle in.  Please call us on 01454 868610 and speak to one of our administrators to make an appointment.

 

September Reception Intake Admissions

Our Open Days are held during October and November and the dates are listed on our calendar.  These events are specifically tailored for our September Reception admissions and include a tour of the school and an opportunity to meet the Head Teacher, staff and pupils; as well as to answer any questions you may have about our school or the admission process.  There is no need to book for these sessions; just turn up on the most convenient session for you.

How to Apply

September Reception Intake Admissions

September Reception admissions to our school are co-ordinated by South Gloucestershire.  Applications should be made directly to them online at www.southglos.gov.uk/education-and-learning/schools-and-colleges/school-admissions/primary-school-admissions/

The closing dates for applications for the new Reception intake for September 2017  is 15 January 2017.

If you are successfully allocated a place for your child, you will be invited to a parents meeting in Term 6, before the children begin school, where you will receive details of our induction programme.  The children will have several opportunities to visit and spend time in their classroom before they begin school in September.
