Starting primary school is a very important step for young children. It is essential that the experience is a happy and exciting one and we work hard to achieve this. We welcome the opportunity to meet you and your child long before admission time.
Children who have their 5th birthday between 1st September and 31st August of a school year start school in September. All the children will be part-time when they start school and will spend either the morning or the afternoon session in school. All children at Millfield are offered full-time places from the October half-term. Parents may wish to defer the place in agreement with the Headteacher, however all children must be full-time by the end of the term in which they reach their 5th birthday.
An extensive induction period is undertaken during the summer term, including liaison by our staff with local pre-school playgroups, children’s visits to class, parent meetings and one to one parent/teacher interviews.
Children will start school in September or at any other convenient time if moving from another school, provided there is a place available in their designated year group. Our aim is to keep class sizes at around 30 pupils.
All Admissions are dealt with through Cambridge County Council. http://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/childrenandfamilies/education/admissions.htm
