If you are moving into the area and are considering joining North Denes Primary School after the official school year has started, please contact
Admissions to check on place availability. If there are spaces, school will contact you and arrange for a visit prior to starting.
If you are currently living locally and already have a school place, the admissions team only consider changes between schools at the start of each term.
Please read A parents’ guide to admissions to schools in Norfolk click here before you make your application. This will ensure you follow the application process correctly, help to avoid delays and maximise your chances of getting your preferred school.
Once the application round is complete NCC process the applications. In April NCC sends a school place offer letter / email to all applicant families. Schools receive notification of the school place offers made for their school.
When we know who will be joining us, we contact all families to welcome them to North Denes Primary School and explain more about our school and dates for all the transition activities.
To ensure a smooth positive transition into school, we hold a number of events for both children and parents.
If your child is new to the school, the teacher and key worker will visit you at home to get to know your child even better. During this visit they ensure that all paperwork needed for school will be completed. These visits give time for conversations about settling in, transition, medical needs and anything else you would like to ask in the comfort of your own home.
We hold an evening meeting for parents in June, where there is an opportunity to meet the teachers and support staff who will be working with your child and to answer any questions.
We have 2 transition visits and to ensure that these sessions are really successful; we ask that parents join us for a short time on the first one and then leave their child on the second.
If you have been successful in gaining a place at our school, we welcome you and look forward to meeting with you soon. If you are considering our school, please come and have a look around. We are happy to arrange times by appointment, just call the office.
