All children must fill out an application form for school whether they are in our school catchment area or not. Application forms are available on the Newport city council website; they should be completed and returned to the Civic Centre with the relevant paperwork. The admissions policy is in the annual parent’s information book provided by the local authority.

If you would like support to fill out your form or any information linked to your application photocopied, please contact the school office. We will also return your form to the Civic Centre if you drop it off at the school office.

Parents receive notification from Newport City Council to inform them if their application has been successful. Parent meetings take place in the summer term for Nursery and Reception parents.

Parent meetings take place before children start in nursery along with transition visits for the children.


Children aged 4+ will enter the school in the September of the school year in which they have their 5th birthday.
