You have the right to appeal against the decision not to offer your child a place at any of the schools you were refused.

You will receive information about the procedure with your notification letter if you are unsuccessful in obtaining a place at Crick Primary School.


Induction of New Children

Reception Admissions

Thinking about starting school is an exciting time for a child. We have a carefully planned approach to the induction of new children.

Home visits – Children who are starting school for the first time will receive a home visit from their new class teacher. The purpose of this visit is for:

·The child to meet the new adults within their own environment
·The teacher to understand as much as possible about the learning that the child has already experience in the first four years of their life.

Open Evening – Summer Term. There will be an open evening for parents/carers to meet staff and other members of the school community and learn about the year ahead and the curriculum.

Summer Term – The children will have the opportunity to visit the Reception Class during this term. On Transition Day, the children will have the opportunity to spend the morning in the Reception class in order to become familiar with their surroundings and the adults who will be working with them.
