Admissions to Bosbury

Our first aim is to work with you to make the transition from home to school a happy and positive experience for your child. We aim to get to know your child quickly and make school an inspiring and fun place to be. All children that join Bosbury CE Primary School are welcomed as individuals and are nurtured and taught with this in mind. Collectively the staff will focus on your child’s wellbeing and all-round achievements. All staff value both academic achievement and personal growth.







Early Years

Children can be admitted into the school from the September of the academic year in which their fifth birthday occurs in accordance with the conditions of the County Admissions Policy. Applications must be made by parents / carers direct to Herefordshire County Council regardless of existing catchment areas. If there are more applications received than places available at our school, then the County Admissions Officer will apply oversubscription criteria to decide which children can be allocated a place.

Each year we hold three ‘get to know you’ sessions for your child to attend. A meeting for the parents of new children takes place in July. There is flexibility for children to have individual induction programmes up to the age of five. We aim to visit settings in the local area so we can find out about your child. During this time parents are offered a home visit by Foundation Stage staff to talk about their child’s needs.

Children begin in September for full days. Your class teacher will be available from 8:45am till 9am if you have any concerns or messages.

An Early Years handbook and a new parent handbook is available on our website with additional information.  


In-Year Admissions

We also welcome children up to the age of 11 who are moving from other schools up to the published admission numbers for each year group. Please phone the school office and talk to Mrs Kaye the school secretary to arrange a visit with Miss Spence the Head Teacher and or receive the appropriate information to support your child joining the school.

For working parents we are pleased to inform you that Jack in The Box nursery, which is the private nursery on site, runs a breakfast club and after school club for Bosbury School. They pick up from the school and after the school clubs.
