Starting School September 2017
This week saw the national offer date for Reception school and transfer to middle/junior school places for September 2017. All Poole families who applied on time will have already received letters confirming their child’s school place.
Starting school is a big step for parents and children, and over the next few weeks schools will be contacting families to plan for September.
If your child is starting school for the first time, there is a lot you can do to help them get prepared with helpful advice available in our preparing for school leaflet which looks at seven key skills to help children in their first school year. More information can be found in the schools and learning pages of the Family Information Directory.
If your child was born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013 and you have not yet applied for a school place it's not too late - just download a Reception application form from our website. For more information about which schools have vacancies and how to apply please contact the Poole Admissions Team on 01202 261936 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
