Reception Year admissions

At Birchwood Grove our current published admission number is 60 (for Reception children starting in 2016). All reception children are offered full time provision from the first available opportunity, whether they are statutory school age or below. We ensure that children below the statutory age (currently 3 and 4 years old) have a minimum of 15 hours per week for the full 38 weeks of the academic year.

The children start in September with a staggered start to school to ensure the transition is as smooth and settled as possible. This will be reviewed annually to take account of the start date of the autumn term.
