Admissions into Foundation for the school year 2021-22

The admissions process for the 2021-22 school year will begin in the Autumn.  It is being handled by Sheffield City Council's Primary Admissions.

 

Those parents who have children with dates of birth between 01Sep2016 and 31Aug2017 will be contacted by Sheffield City Council in October who will provide all of the information that you need along with an invitation to apply for a place.  The deadline for applications is usually around the 15th January. The deadline for online applications is usually around 6th December.

 

The local authority can be contacted directly on 0114 2735766 or emailed via ed-admissions@sheffield.gov.uk   

Visiting the School

We will be holding open evenings for parents of children who are due to start school in the 2021-22 school year; those born between 01Sep2016 and 31Aug2017.  

The dates for our Open Evening events are yet to be arranged.

This is an open event for you to come and hear a brief talk from our Foundation Staff and School Leadership team members, followed by a look around the Foundation Stage classrooms and department; and at this time you will have the chance to ask questions or discuss more with the school staff.  We will start promptly at 6:30pm on both evenings with a talk in the Key Stage 1 Hall, located in our Tullibardine Building, and you will be able to access this via the "Pre-school and Pupil Entrance" gateway on Tullibardine Road.  Thereafter we will progress to the Foundation department.  

You DO NOT need to book to attend these meetings, please just turn up on the evening. 

We organise these viewings in an evening to give the best opportunity for parents and carers to bring their ready-for-school aged children with them when the school is not already filled with pupils, noise, and the busy-ness of the day.  We appreciate that this does not always give a full picture of how life is during the normal school operational hours, but we take into consideration that our 90 four and five year olds don't necessarily like being in a goldfish bowl experience during their first weeks week in school.  Accordingly, if you attend one of the evening events you will have the opportunity to request a further visit to the school prior to the application deadline given by the Local Authority, but this will be subject to availability of staff and appropriate time slots.  Please ask on the night for further details.
