A child can apply for a reception class place in the academic year following their fourth birthday. Any child who is four before 31st August will be admitted on the 1st September in common with all schools locally.
Deanwood School is currently a one form entry school.
For children entering Year R there is an induction programme in the term prior to their entry. This helps familiarise the children with the school environment and their teacher. For those parents requesting admission for their children into other year groups or at any other times of the year, please contact the school as this will depend on the availability of places in the particular year group requested.
Children are legally required to attend school unless prevented from doing so by illness or another valid reason. For this reason, we encourage parents to try to arrange any doctor or dentist appointments after school or in the late afternoon if possible. The Head
of School is unable to grant any holiday requests during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. Lateness is also discouraged as it results in an interrupted start to your child’s day. Please consult our attendance policy for further details.
