The Local Authority sets criteria for the allocation of school places. It is the Local Authority that has responsibility for admissions, not the school.
At Homefield C of E Primary School we admit children into Nursery during the academic year in which they are four, and children into Reception during the academic year in which they are five. We follow the Norfolk Admissions Policy, including their procedures for when the school is over subscribed.
Nursery and Reception parents are required to register their request for their child to attend Homefield C of E Primary School with Norfolk County Council by the end of the December prior to the September they ought to be starting. This is the only way to ensure that your child is considered for a school place.
In the Summer term all new parents for Nursery and Reception will be invited to a parents’ information evening. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about your child’s transition to our school and ask any further questions you may have.
Please note that children in our Nursery are NOT guaranteed a place in our Reception class.
