Cambridgeshire County Council is responsible for Reception admissions to the school. Full details of the admissions policy are set out in the “Cambridgeshire Schools Admissions” booklet.
All the information you need to know about the admissions process is available in this guide below (please click on link picture) and is also available on the County Council’s website at:
Children enter Kennett School in the Autumn term of the school year they turn 5 years old. These Reception children will attend school for one or two mornings to start with but will attend full time within the first week. If a staggered entry is wished for then this can be arranged with the reception teacher. During the first week allocated optional home visits of the reception children take place by the class teacher. Our Published Admission Number (PAN) is 15.
We are aware that starting school can be daunting for both parents and children. We hope to allay any anxieties that you may have. In the Summer term before your child starts school you and your child will be offered several opportunities to visit the school and meet the Reception teacher.
These will include:
- The Reception will visit those children who attend local nurseries to meet the children in surroundings that are familiar to them.
- A parent’s introduction meeting to give you further information, an insight into school life and an opportunity for you to voice any concerns that you may have about your child starting school.
- All children allocated a place by the County Council will be invited to attend one morning and one afternoon session at the end of the Summer term to help integrate them into school.
If you have any specific issues about which you require information please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
