Starting at Whaddon School


Our aim is for the transfer to school to be as smooth as possible with the children feeling happy and secure throughout the process. As an induction to our school, pupils are invited to attend two afternoon visits. There is also an informal meeting for parents to share information  such as school routines, diary dates etc.

When will my child start school?

All children who were born between 01.09.17 and 31.08.18 are entitled to a school place from September 2022. 

Government legislation currently states that parents have the right to request a place from the September after their child’s fourth birthday. If you wish to take up a place please apply through your local authority.
