Early Years - Admissions Procedure

The following steps are taken during the admissions procedure:
  • Staff will endeavour to visit children in their current setting before they visit Sherborne House Pre-Reception or Reception.
  • An initial visit to our setting is then organised, an ideal opportunity to discuss your child’s readiness for school and for us to learn about their interests.
  • Children will be invited to a Taster Session prior to them starting at our Pre-Reception. This visit will be an opportunity for them to experience the setting and take part in fun activities with your support, and for you to ask any questions you may have for the staff. You can reassure your child by talking to them about the new, exciting experiences they will encounter, and about making new friends with whom they will share a wide and diverse curriculum.
  • Upon admission your child will be assigned a Key Person, who will be your first link between home and school. We encourage close partnership with parents and ask you to share pertinent information with us.
