Galleywood Infant School provides for the full time admission of all children from the September following their fourth birthday. It is our policy to phase admission to the Foundation Stage over 1/2 weeks, allowing all children time to settle happily and become familiar with school routines. As dates vary each year the timetable is explained at our meeting for new parents in May.
Parents can request that the date their child is admitted to school is deferred until later in the school year until the child reaches compulsory school age in the term following their fifth birthday.
Parents can also request that their child attends part time until he/she reaches compulsory school age. These children can be collected at 1.15pm until they are ready for a full day. Any requests should be discussed with the school on an individual basis.
Our maximum intake or number intended to admit for each year is 60. In the event of over subscription places will be allocated using the criteria specified in our Admissions Policy which is available in the school office.
We liaise closely with all feeder playgroups and with St Michael’s Junior School to ensure a happy and smooth transition for children joining or leaving our school.
