Parents who are considering enrolling their child at All Saints’ are welcome to visit the school during a working day at any mutually convenient time.  An appointment may be made by telephoning the school.

The Headteacher or Deputy will be pleased to meet the parents of prospective pupils, to answer any queries and to show parents around the school and grounds.  Children are admitted to Lower Foundation Phase in the September after their third birthday.  Arrangements are made for the children to visit prior to their joining the Lower Foundation Phase the following September.  Parents of new Nursery children are invited to our Induction Evening in June to meet members of staff.

Parents are politely reminded that this is a Church in Wales Voluntary Aided School and that the governors and staff endeavour to encourage a caring and Christian ethos in the school.  Religious values play an integral part in the life of the school.  Collective Worship and Religious Education consequently play an important part in the school day.

Looked After Children

Children who are registered as being ‘Looked After’ due to out of school circumstances are given priority in the admission criteria. During their time with us their progress, wellbeing and care will be monitored by the ‘Looked After’ Child Co-ordinator.’ This is the Headteacher.

Nursery Provision

Nursery Education is not a statutory provision and parents have no right of appeal under the Education Act if they are unsuccessful in gaining a place. Admission to the Nursery Class or Unit of the school does not guarantee admission to the school.
