All children can attend school full-time in the September following their 4th birthday.

 If you do not wish to take up a full-time place in the September you can decide which term you would like your child to start full-time or part-time in the Reception Class at School.  Please note that the part time option is only available until your child reaches Compulsory School Age which is the beginning of the term after your child’s 5th birthday.  At this stage your child must take up a full time school place.


You have the right to appeal for places at all schools for which you have applied and been refused a place. Please read Suffolk County Council's Guide to Education Admission Appeals.
