Children are eligible to start school at the beginning of the academic year in which they will have their fifth birthday. Every year, we welcome up to 20 new pupils into our Reception year at St. Peter’s. This is our agreed admission number with West Sussex County Council.
Parents and carers are asked to decide whether their child will start school on a full-time or part-time basis. Some children may not be socially, emotionally or physically ready to start school in September and, therefore, parents and carers may request to delay their child’s admission to school. St. Peter’s staff are happy to consult with parents and carers over the most appropriate starting arrangements for their child to support transition and help develop the home school partnership.
During the Autumn term we hold a series of open mornings which prospective parents are encouraged to attend. Please contact the school office for more information or if you would like to arrange a visit.
All admissions, including in-year admissions for those families looking to move schools, are dealt with thought the admissions office in Horsham. If you would like to apply for a place, please follow this link;
