Admissions Arrangements


 

 

The Local Authority is responsible for admissions to the school, and decides if a child can be admitted. Details of the policy and procedures are in the ‘Schools in Suffolk’ booklet. Please follow the links below to apply for places this academic year.

Children moving into the area and needing to start school mid-term must submit a form to the Local Authority. These forms are available from the school or the Local Authority.

All children may attend school full-time in the September following their fourth birthday. Children do not have to go to school full-time until the term after their fifth birthday, the choice lies with parents/carers.

A meeting is held for parents of the new reception class intake during the term before the children start. This forms part of the induction of new children. Children joining the reception class intake have the opportunity to make several visits to the school, to spend a morning in their new class and make new friends, to have lunch and to become familiar with the school and classroom.  They are paired with older ‘buddies’ and all children take great pleasure in welcoming new friends.

We strongly encourage parents to visit the school if they are considering enrolling their children at Coldfair Green. Please telephone the school on 01728 830649 to book an appointment. We are confident that once you see us in action you will want your child to join us for their learning.
