Admission into Reception

At By Brook Valley a school place is available for all children from the September following their fourth birthday as follows:-

Children may start school in the academic year in which they are five.  As parents, you may decide if you wish them to start attending school full time, after an induction period, or whether you wish them to be part-time until after Christmas.

Admission into a year group other than Reception

This can be done at any time simply by completing an admission form and returning it to County Hall.  By Brook Valley School reserves the right to request parents/guardians to verify their child’s birth date by producing a birth certificate or other official document.  Unless a family is moving into the area, the local schools operate an informal agreement to encourage families only to move school within the locality at the end of a term as this will cause the least disruption to child’s education.

Secondary Transfer

Information on transfer to secondary school will be sent to parents/guardians during the Autumn Term of their child’s last year at our school.  Most of our pupils tend to go to either Sheldon or Hardenhuish Schools in Chippenham.  It is for you as parents/guardians to select between these or other schools.  Wiltshire Council will be happy to provide you with any information you may need.

We, of course, liaise closely with all our local secondary schools and fully support the induction packages they offer to the children.
