Key Dates

For children starting school or moving up to the Junior School in September 2021

Buckinghamshire Council organise our admissions and appeals. Parents should contact them directly to discuss applications. 

There are set criteria for admission that have to be followed in the allocation of places.  These criteria are decided by the County Council giving priority to children for example who are looked after or have an education health care plan and catchment children. If you want further details about this, please look at the County Council website link at the bottom of this page.

Each year we provide a timetable of the important dates as your child gets ready to start school for the first time or if they are moving from an Infant to a Junior school Year 2 to Year 3 transfer.  There is more information in the Starting School and Moving up to Junior School Guide and the Primary Schools Directory.
