First Admissions

If your child will be 5 years old between 1st September 2021 and 31st August 2022, you will need to apply for their school place by 15th January 2021. Places are currently available for children in and out of catchment.

 

Tours of the school with Mrs MacDonald, our Head, for prospective parents will be available during the Autumn term and the dates will be listed here.

Each tour will last approximately an hour and are parent focused with the opportunity for you to ask questions.

As we limit the number of people on each tour please contact the office by email office@greythorn.notts.sch.uk or telephone 0115 9149779 to book your place.

 


Induction

We provide a gradual induction programme for our new Foundation Stage children and their parents. Induction packs provide information about what happens in school and includes a number of forms for parents to complete and sign. New children start school after the summer holidays - part time to begin with but building to full-time very quickly.

 

New children settle very quickly at our school; we encourage independence from the start but are also mindful that some need a little more time to get used to routines.

 

Those children, who join us part way through the year, may start school on an agreed date which is negotiated with the school.

 

We currently have an admission limit of 45 children per year group, with 7 year groups this gives a maximum number on roll of 315 children.

Admission Appeals and Coronavirus (Covid-19) update 30/04/2020

Unfortunately the coronavirus outbreak has impacted on the ability of schools and panels to carry out admission appeals in the usual way and therefore there may be some unavoidable delays to the commencement to appeals being held across the country. However, as parents/families must continue to have the right to appeal to any school which has refused their child a place, the Government announced regulatory changes on the 24th April 2020 to the Admissions Appeals Code which will enable hearings to take place, although it is unlikely these will be in person due to social distancing requirements.

 

Your appeal, once submitted will be forwarded to the Independent Clerk, who is currently planning again for the commencement of the appeal hearings. He will be in touch with you as soon as possible once a date has been agreed for the hearing to take place. We do fully recognise the frustration this may cause but these are unprecedented times and trust you fully understand this. Each appeal should continue to be sent to info@flyinghightrust.co.uk and you will receive acknowledgment that the appeal has been received, update on the situation and contact details for the appeals clerk who will manage your appeal and keep you informed of progress, date and outcomes.

 

Assuring you of our best attention at all times.
