St Philip’s can take a maximum of 40 children in each year group.  For the last 4 years we have been full and oversubscribed.

Admission arrangements can be found in more detail on our admissions page.


We have scheduled a number of open sessions where parents of children due to start in September 2019 are able to pop in and have a tour of the school to see us in action.  The Head or Deputy will also be available at these times to chat with you if you have any questions.   You don't need to book - just pop in - if you want to bring your children with you, that's not a problem.

 Starting School for the first time

Starting school is a very important time for you, your child and the school. We all need to work together to make the transition smooth and rewarding.

 In the term prior to their entry, pupils will be invited into school for visits. This will help them become familiar with the surroundings and routines of school. During this period, there will be a meeting for parents/carers to discuss our partnership with you and talk about any concerns you might have.

Pupils will be admitted to St Philip’s Primary School in the September of the year in which they are five. Initially, younger pupils will attend for half a day only to ease their transition into school. Normally, all pupils will be attending full time by the October half term, but parents / carers must not feel that their child should stay at school for longer hours than they can manage. A happy and successful start is important for a successful school career.

We have positive links with our feeder nursery settings.
