If you are applying mid-school year (Years 6 down to Rec) then you will not need to complete them all.

8.Staggered Starts for Reception startersfor reading only.

In order to ensure a smooth transition for your child starting school in September, we will be having staggered sessions for their first few weeks of the term.  This reduces the number of children in the class initially so that it is less overwhelming for them and makes things like the first time to the dinner hall better for them. EYFS will be completely full with 60 children. The children will be split into two groups depending on their date of birth called 'younger' or 'older' for these staggered start sessions. If your child is born on or before 9th March 2018, they are our 'older' children. Children born on or after 10th March, 2018 are our 'younger' children. There is a timetable below setting out when your child’s sessions will be. Please click on the 'older' or 'younger' icon, depending on your child's date of birth. Please note all children will be in full time on MONDAY 12th SEPTEMBER.
