As a community school, statutory school age admissions are managed centrally by Middlesbrough Council. As a three form entry school, each year group can admit 90 pupils from Reception to Year 6 and we have a 52 place Nursery, both morning and afternoon.
We also have an 80 place 2 and 3 year old setting and forthcoming 30 hour working parent(s) entitlement from September 2017.
Further details can be obtained from our school office or by contacting Children’s Services.
Early Years Foundation Stage Phased Entry
In order to ensure a smooth transition into school, children will engage in a one-week phased entry programme comprising part-time morning and afternoon sessions with opportunities to stay for lunch.
Phased entry allows the school to offer a 1:5 staff to child ratio, enabling staff to focus on settling children into their new environment. The sessions will be class based, giving children the opportunity to get to know their class group before the free-flow system begins in the third week of term.
Children will be allocated a key worker on entry. The key worker is responsible for monitoring children’s progress in learning and their social and emotional development.
Transfers to Secondary Schools
Admissions to Secondary schools are managed centrally by Middlesbrough Council. A child transfers to Secondary school in September following his/her 11th birthday.
There are regular meetings between the Headteachers and teachers to discuss transition arrangements for our children. Children are also given the opportunity to spend time and participate in exciting projects run by our local Secondary schools throughout the year.
School employs an external contractor to monitor and progress families or individuals who have poor attendance and cases where families could be prosecuted for poor attendance. Details of this contractor and their work on impacting upon attendance can be sought from the school office staff.
