Admission Arrangements to Foundation Stage 2 (Reception)
As a Voluntary Aided school, the Governing Body is the Admissions Authority for St Simon's and is responsible for taking decisions on applications for admissions. All schools have a limit on the number of children to be admitted into the Reception class each year; this has been set for the 2018 intake at 30 for St Simon's.
By law, a parent must arrange for their child to start school at the beginning of the term following their fifth birthday unless they have made other suitable arrangements. In Stockport, there is a policy of planned earlier admission to primary education.
ALL children aged 4+ years start school in one Reception intake in September.
Children born between 1st September 2013 and 31st August 2014 will be able to apply for a place at St Simon's to start in September 2018.
