Open Day for children due to start school or nursery in September 2024

We have two upcoming open days for parents of children due to start school in September 2024. Please contact the school office on 01202 871577 to book your space for the open day.


If your child is eligible to start school for the first time in September 2024, you must apply for a school place through the local authority where you live. 

The closing date for on time applications is the 15th January 2024.


If you are a Dorset resident you can apply online via this link Starting school for the first time - Dorset Council  

You can create an account and then complete the application which should take no longer than half an hour.  You will receive a confirmation email once you have submitted your application.


If you do not live in Dorset you should contact your own local authority for information on how to apply for a school place.


If you are interested in your child joining our nursery please contact the school office, who will be happy to help with any questions you may have.
