How to apply
To join our school please contact Somerset Direct on 0300 123 2224. We are a popular village Primary school and take many children from out of our catchment area. Due to the mobility of families within the village and surrounding area we often have places at the school that become available through the year, throughout the school. If you would like to enquire about a place at our school, do arrange to come and see us, or approach the Somerset Admissions Team. Details below...
Come and see our school
You and your children are welcome to visit our school so that you can look around and have plenty of opportunity to ask us any questions. These tours are normally conducted by our Head Teacher or representatives from Year 6 and can easily be arranged by telephoning the school office. You will be asked for a little information about your children as we would like them to enjoy their visit. We would be happy to arrange a follow-up visit if needed.
During Covid-19 some of the above may not be possible. However, it may be possible to visit the school out of school hours - please ring for further details.
Approach your local Somerset Admissions Team for a place
You can apply for a place for your child at our school at any time and you will be informed if there is a place available in the relevant school year class. If your child is of pre-school age you will need to apply for a place by filling in an application form - see http://www.somerset.gov.uk/education-learning-and-schools/choosing-a-school/apply-to-start-school/. The deadline for admissions for September 2021 is 15th January 2021. Children living in our catchment area are generally allocated a place at our school and many children who live outside the catchment area have also successfully applied. Children are given places strictly according to published admissions criteria.
