General Admissions Information
Choosing a school which will provide the best education and personal happiness for your child is one of the most important decisions a parent has to make. We are proud to offer a calm and caring environment which will help your child settle in very quickly. Our staff are dedicated and committed to ensuring each child is supported individually, ensuring they have the opportunity to flourish as they progress through the school. We value the parent/school partnership greatly and encourage your involvement as parents in your child’s learning.
We welcome prospective families to our school and would be delighted to show you around.
For In Year admissions please contact our school office on 01249 720407 or firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a visit.
Admission into our Reception Class
We operate a one-term entry policy at Sutton Benger School. Those children whose fifth birthday falls between 1 September and 31 August start in the previous September. Any child living within the Sutton Benger Parish Boundary will be allocated a place at the school, providing we are not oversubscribed. We also welcome children from outside our catchment area, and at present a number of children come from the surrounding areas. Any parent or guardian wishing for their child to come to our school should complete an application form.
During the previous summer term we invite children to join us for afternoon visits before they start in September. They spend their time getting to know their future teacher, getting accustomed to their new surroundings and meeting their new friends. As a result, we have few tearful faces on the first morning! (Although we do keep tissues handy for parents!).
A meeting for new parents is held in the Spring term and the admission procedure is explained in detail. Our team of Early Years professionals ensure that your child will transfer with ease from their pre-school setting, through a very effective induction process. Our wrap around care facilities offer support for working families in and around the area.
Applications for our September 2021 intake will be closed on 15th January 2021 - Late Applications will be considered through Wiltshire Council's Late Application process.
