Reception September 2021 Admission

Thank you for taking the time to look at our website and considering us as a school for your child in September 2021.

Seven Stars is a very welcoming and inclusive school and we make every effort to ensure that every child 'comes first'. Our children love their learning, make great friends and our aim as a school is to open doors for all of our children into the joy of learning and living (see our Open Doors Curriculum on the Curriculum page)

One of the best ways to get to know a school is to visit. However, due to Covid-19 restrictions we are only hosting a small number of tours into the school after school hours. If you would like to visit in-person please get in touch by phoning the school on 01772 422503 and we will arrange for you to look around.

Our Early Years (Nursery and Reception) unit is called 'Superstars' and the Reception class is called 'Rockets' class because we want them to blast off into a world of learning, fun and adventure at school.

We will be holding meetings at the end of June, hopefully face to face, when you will be able to hear about all the things we have in place and what your child's first year in formal education will look like.

At that meeting we will introduce you to the staff who will be teaching your child and answer any questions you may have.

If restrictions allow after 21st June then we hope to also have some opportunities for your child to visit their new class and meet their teacher and some of their new friends.

Arrangements for disabled pupils

Applications for admission of children with difficulties are welcomed and parents are asked to give the Headteacher details of the disability on application.

The Headteacher will arrange a meeting at a mutually convenient time to discuss the ways in which the child’s disability might hinder her/him from taking a full part in the life of the school and the ways in which such difficulties will be overcome. All areas of the school to which children have access are DDA compliant or have appropriate access arrangements to enable all children to take part.

The Headteacher will then make any arrangements necessary to enable the child to participate fully in all lessons and activities. These arrangements may include briefing staff, obtaining special furniture, making minor adaptations to the building, rearranging classroom furniture and/or employing support staff.

These may take time to put into place and may require advice and assistance from the Area Office or specialist agencies, so parents are urged to see the Headteacher as soon as possible to ensure that everything can be ready for the child’s first day at school.
