Admissions

Admissions

Annemount welcomes children from the age of two and three quarters to the Nursery and Pre-Reception classes. Children must be aged four by September for admission into Reception, aged five by September for admission to Year One and aged six by September for admission to Year Two.

We encourage both parents to visit the school. Please use the Tour Request Form to make an appointment. Mrs Maidment, Head Teacher, will be delighted to meet you.

Due to the current pandemic, the school is minimising access to the school building. Therefore we are offering the option of a personalised virtual tour with Mrs Maidment, our Head Teacher. She will show you around the school and classrooms, giving you the opportunity to see the school in action and meet the children, as would be the case during a traditional tour.

The personalised virtual tours have been well received with positive feedback.

In addition to the “visit”, we encourage parents to watch our School Video as well as our Wellbeing Film. This shows the  pupils’ perspective of their school experience.

Early registration is advised as we offer places in registration order. Registrations for children seeking entry will secure a place on our assessment list.  All children seeking admission would under normal circumstances be invited to an informal activity session prior to an offer being made.  Currently, we are guided by information as well as brief video footage  submitted by parents to make offers in good faith. We will request this information for our youngest pupils prior to them starting.

The Registration Form needs to please be completed and returned together with the registration fee of £120 per child.  You are welcome to pay by BACs and our bank details are as follows:

Sort Code 18-00-02

Kindly reference the payment with your child’s name and let us know by email.

Admissions’ assessments commence during the October prior to the year of entry, although we may consider late applications. We invite all of our applicants to participate in small groups and let them choose different activities and play. We also teach them something completely new. In this way we can have a sense of their development in all areas of learning: Communication, Language and Literacy; Problem Solving Reasoning and Numeracy, Physical Development, Creative Development, General Knowledge and Understanding of the World and finally, Personal, Social and Emotional Development.  Our objective is to be able to meet each child’s needs within a harmonious class setting. Rather than attainment, we are looking for potential and suitability to the programme at Annemount.

Once an offer of a place is made, parents are invited to commit to their child’s place by means of a non-refundable deposit of £1000.
