All children enter Reception in the SEPTEMBER of the academic year in which they are five.
We receive children into school on a full time basis in September but consider each child’s needs carefully with parents before children become full time.
Children may join our school throughout the year if places are available and procedures for admissions and settling in the school are discussed with each family on arrival.
We have a very good Transition Policy which ensures that children have a smooth transition into school whether they have had pre school experience at West Rise Nursery, another setting, or indeed at home. Children and parents are invited for preliminary visits to meet the staff and learn more about starting school. Admission to other year groups are also welcomed, but of course are dependent on spaces being available.
Children transfer to a Junior School in the September following their seventh birthday. Children from West Rise Infant School usually transfer to West Rise Junior School. The two schools work very closely together under the ‘West Rise Schools’ umbrella.
