2017/18 Admissions to Primary School

The age at which children start primary school in Powys will change from September next year. In future:

• Children will start school in the September after their fourth birthday - currently they can start school at the beginning of the term in which they have their fourth birthday
• All children would be admitted in to school at the start of the autumn term in September
• The revised arrangements would start for the commencement of the 2017-18 School year in September 2017
• Additional hours of free pre-school provision will be available to parents.

You can register your child's name with us as early as you wish. We will then make sure that as soon as your child is eligible to have an application made in respect of their admission that you receive the Information for Parents Booklet. If you would like to register your child's name you can download the form below and return to us at the address provided.

In the meantime why not arrange a visit? We would be delighted to see you.
