If you would like to apply for a place at our school, the school’s admissions policy is set and administered by Bath and North East Somerset (BANES) Council, and its website is the best place to look for the latest guidance: http://www.bathnes.gov.uk/services/schools-colleges-and-learning/admissions-schools/admissions-starting-school-2019-2020. You can also download a copy of the BANES Council Admissions Booklet here.
The school year starts in September. Children who start in Reception (in the school year when they become five) attend the School for at least four weeks part-time before they join full-time. This can be extended if the child is not yet ready for a full day, after discussion with the class teacher. A feel for life in Reception at Bathampton School can be gained from our “Starting School” guide, which is given to new pupils in advance of their start date.
It is recommended that, whenever possible, parents apply for a place for their child within the standard timescale, making Bathampton Primary School their first choice, in order to optimise their chances of getting a place for their child.
Parents are of course welcome to apply for a place at other points in the school year; for example, if the family is moving into the area. In that case, it is recommended that parents must enquire at the school and not the Local Authority about any places that may be available. Teaching staff will always make newcomers welcome and support them in adjusting to their new school and integrating with the rest of their class group.
Parents and their children are always welcome to visit the school. Please ring the office (tel: 01225 465229) to make an appointment to talk to the Head teacher or for a look around.
