Entry into School
Full time entry into school follows the East riding Admission procedures. This means that children join school full time at the beginning of the school year in which the child becomes five.
Kilham CE Primary School also offers Nursery provision. This means parents can access 15 hours of free Nursery provision at their convenience according to session timetables. School follows Local Authority guidance and the earliest a child can start in the nursery is normally the term after the child’s third birthday.
All children are invited into school for several visits during the term before they start school.
Criteria for Admission
As a principle, we value all children, and would wish to accept them regardless of circumstance. In practice, the size and construction of the school, and consideration for other pupils, require us on occasion to limit entry, in accordance with the provisions below and our admissions limit which is set by the Local Authority.
- Places will first be given to children who are looked after by a local authority.
- Places will be given to children who live in the school’s catchment area.
- Places will be given to children who have a sibling attending the school in Reception or Years 1 to 5.
- Places will be given to those children who live closest to the school.
All children from outside the catchment area will be admitted subject to not exceeding our admissions limit. The above provisions apply only in the case of over-subscription.
Parents of children whose individual needs present specific difficulties will be invited to school to discuss the most appropriate provision for their children.
