Joining Moorlands….

Our normal years of entry are in Early Years and Reception but we do take pupils throughout the year in all year groups if places are available.

This will usually follow a visit and a meeting with the Headteacher and the child will be offered a trial day. It is important on this day they demonstrate that they can settle in and benefit from the environment that we offer. Depending on the age of the child, they may need to undertake some straightforward tests in Maths and English. Following application and the trial day, places will be offered where space permits. Reports from their current school will be requested.

Applying for a place in Early Years (2-5years)

Parents who are applying for a place in Early Years may wish to visit the school prior to this, so feel free to contact us to have a look around the school and meet with the Headteacher and Head of Early Years.

Places will be offered on receipt of the application form and once accepted, then the place is guaranteed. Early application is encouraged, as there is a maximum number of children that we can accommodate. There is a minimum requirement of 4 sessions per week. When start dates have been confirmed, we offer a settling in session prior to your child’s arrival.
