Reception Children

This year's application round for Reception places for September 2018 is now open.

The school's Published Admission Number (PAN) for September 2018 will be 15.

By law a child does not have to start school until the term following the fifth birthday. However, most children start school in the September following the fourth birthday.

If your child was born between 1st September 2013 and 31st August 2014 they are due to start school in September 2018 and you will need to apply for a school place by noon on 15th January 2018. All children will be offered a full time place but, if you would prefer your child to attend  part-time or to delay entry until later on in the academic year please contact the school directly to arrange this. All admissions are administered by the Local Authority.

You can apply by completing an application online or by completing a common paper application form. You can find all the information that you need if you follow this link: http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/schools-learning-admissions-applying

On 16th April 2018 letters will be despatched to all parents who submitted an application form by the January deadline, offering a place at one school.  If you have been refused a place at your preferred school you can appeal.

Applications recieved after the January deadline will be considered after the first round and this means that the outcome of your application will not be determined until late June 2018 at the earliest.

Admissions for Other School Years

Before a child is admitted to the school in any other year apart from Reception, a Primary School Admission Application Form for Transfers must be completed by the child’s parent or guardian. These can be obtained from the school or from County Hall and should be returned to County Hall when completed.   

Transfer to Secondary School

At the end of year 6, children transfer to secondary school with the majority of our children going to St John’ School, Marlborough. Applications for a place at secondary school must be made through Wiltshire Council in the Autumn term of year 6. The deadline for secondary school admissions is by 12pm on 31 October 2017. Your child will bring home a form or you can apply online.

Transfer arrangements for our Year 6 pupils going to St John’s are sent to parents during the Spring Term prior to their children starting in September. These arrangements include visits to St Katharine’s Primary School by St John’s staff, visits made to St John’s by our Year 6 pupils and Parents Evenings when you can visit the school and meet the teachers who will be directly involved with your child/children.
