Riverview CofE Primary & Nursery School

Riverview exists to cherish, challenge and inspire adults and children within a Christian community

Admissions

Choosing the right school for your child is a most important decision. We welcome visits from prospective parents/carers and their children. These are arranged for groups in September of the year prior to admission, or individually at other times. When you have decided that you would like your child to come to Riverview C of E Primary and Nursery School, we ask you to complete an admission form by the closing date before your child is due to start school and return it to the Local Authority. Later you will be advised by the LA if your application is successful. Children start in the Reception class in September. 

For a small number of summer born children, parents may feel that it would be appropriate if their child’s admission to Reception were delayed until the following year, meaning that if a place could be offered, the child would be educated outside their chronological age group.  Parents should discuss any concerns with the Headteacher prior to submitting an application, which must be accompanied by evidence clearly demonstrating such a need. Governors will make their decision in the main round of admissions, always acting in the best interests of the child and taking the circumstances of each case into account, particularly the views of the Headteacher. Reasons for their decision will subsequently be set out for parents.  Please note however, that the school cannot guarantee or ‘hold open’ a Reception place for the following year’s entry. Please also note that there is no right of appeal if a place is offered that is not in the parents’ preferred age group.
