Admissions Policy

Colebrook Infant School is an Academy which means the Governors of the school are responsible for their own admission policy and arrangements.

Pupils will normally be admitted at the age of four in the September of the school year in which they reach their fifth birthday. Parents have the right to defer their child’s start date at school until the term after their child’s fifth birthday. A child must legally be in full-time education in the term following their fifth birthday.

Admissions Procedure

Applications must be made through the Local Authority’s Co-ordinated scheme and all instructions and deadlines in the scheme should be adhered to by applicants. Late applications are dealt with in accordance with the scheme procedures.
