Applications to the Early Years Foundation Stage/Reception Class
Rattlesden CofE Primary Academy offers children a full or part-time place in the Early Years Foundation Stage/Reception Class. All children are entitled to full-time place from September. A part-time place is available if parents/carers do not wish to take up the full-time place initially. In Suffolk, children are expected to attend full-time from the beginning of the term in which they have their fifth birthday.
Parents/carers who would like to apply for a place in our Early Years class for September 2019, will need to apply by 15th January 2019.
During the summer term before admission, our new starters are invited to a series of half day sessions to give them the opportunity to become familiar with their new surroundings, and to also try out a school lunch. Our Reception teacher will also visit your child at home and/or in their nursery provision in order that the transition to primary school is as seamless and comprehensive as possible.
We warmly welcome visits from prospective parents and children to the school. Please call us on 01449 736355 to make an appointment.
