Admissions

We are pleased that you are considering a place at Trafalgar Infant School or Trafalgar Junior School for your child.

You can find out more about our Admissions arrangements by visiting Richmond Local Authority’s website for primary admissions.

All primary school admissions are organised and allocated by Richmond Local Education Authority. The on-line application process goes live in late October and closes early in December in the academic year before your child is due to start in Reception or Y3. Allocation of places is sent out to parents in April. The above website will also provide detailed information on the criteria used in the allocation process.

Please see the Junior school website for information about Secondary Admissions.

Reception Admissions at the Infant School

The statutory  age for starting school is the term after your child’s 5th birthday.

At Trafalgar Infant School all our children have the opportunity to start full time (9.05 – 3.05) from the beginning of the academic year in which they become 5 years old.

We are a three form entry school which means that we have three classes of up to 30 children in each of the three year groups.

On entry to Reception, children are mixed across all three classes (RubySilver and Gold) to ensure a balance of numbers, ages (Autumn, Spring and Summer birthdays) and gender.

Y3 Admissions at the Junior School

Children who are currently in Y2 at the Infant School and children from other schools must complete the Richmond Local Authority primary admissions.

The Junior school is a three form entry school which means that we have three classes of up to 30 children in each of the four year groups.

 

 

 

In-Year Admissions

The Local Authority keeps a record of any spare places we have have in either school and allocates these places according to their admissions criteria. More information can be found at Richmond Council's In-Year Admissions website.

The process is outlined on the Richmond Local Authority's Admissions Appeals page along with the appeal's process deadlines.
