Bellfield Infant School: Reception - Year 2

We are a 2 form entry inclusive Infant School (60 children in each year group). The Local Authority organises admission on entry to Reception.

Children can start full time Reception the September after their 4th birthday. Example: If your child was born between 1 September 2019 and 31 August 2020, they will be able to start school in September 2024.


Admission Criteria in the case of over-subscription

Where there are more applicants than there are places available, we will offer places based on the following order of priority:

  1. Looked After Children (in public care).
  2. Children with a brother or sister at the school (excluding Nursery or Day care) who will still be in attendance at the time the sibling enters the school.
  3. Children who live nearest to the school by straight line measurement.
  4. Should you require a place, parents should complete the relevant documentation.  This can be obtained from the School Office.


Bellfield Nursery: September after 3rd Birthday

Admission to our Nursery class is organised by the school. Should your require a place, parents should complete the relevant documentation available in the school office.  

IMPORTANT NOTICE: If your child attends our Nursery, a place in Reception class is not guaranteed as you are required to apply to the Local Authority for admission into Reception.
