How to Apply for a Reception 2019 Place
September Reception admissions to our school are managed by South Gloucestershire Local Authority. Applications should be made directly to them online - CLICK HERE to visit the admissions page.
The closing dates for applications for the new Reception intake for September 2019 is January 2019.
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.
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.
