Admission for pupils with disabilities

We offer provision to support those children with disabilities. The Accessibility Legislation (2003) ensures that the school is open to all children.



Unfortunately, current guidance from the government and local authority advises no large gatherings during the autumn term. To replace our normal Open Evening, we have a film on the HomePage of our website and the website itself provides detailed information. If you contact the school office (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Any specific questions can be directed to the office email address or if you would prefer a telephone appointment to speak to the head teacher, Mrs Anna Moss, or another member of staff, please call 0121 445 1622. We will host visits to the school on November 13th by appointment only. On this day there will not be children or staff available with the exception of Anna Moss, Headteacher and Helen Townsend, Deputy Headteacher in order to limit the opportunity for transmission.
