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 a school visit outside of school hours. There is also an informal meeting for parents, on Bucks transition day, to share information  such as school routines, diary dates etc. Whilst this meeting is taking place with parents, the children meet their new teacher and teaching assistant enjoying a range of activities to help them settle into life at Whaddon School.

When will my child start school?

All children who were born between 01.09.19 and 31.08.20 are entitled to a school place from September 2024. 

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.
