Policy for admission

We are an inclusive school that welcomes children from all backgrounds and abilities.

Children are admitted to Conifers Toddler group from the age of 2 years, but children will be considered for admission further up the school if there are places available.

All applications will be treated on merit and in a sensitive manner.

The only restrictions we place on entry are those of number and the need to ensure that there is a match between school and child. The level of ability of a child, or any special need that he/she may have, therefore, is taken into account as it is essential that the school is able to respond appropriately to the needs of each child.

In the event of a year group being full, a child’s name will be placed on a waiting list, and this will be operated on a first-come, first-served basis.

We expect all Early Years children to progress to our Main School, but the school reserves the right to refuse Main School entry in the event of a child’s behaviour or academic progress giving cause for concern.
