Welcome to Reception

Whether your child is joining us from Nursery or it's their first experience of 'Big School', we welcome them gently in to the first stage of 'proper' schooling.

We aim to provide a balanced educational experience for your child through the Early Learning Goals within the different areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).  The Early Years Foundation Stage is the first stage of the National Curriculum for children aged 0-5 years.

How to Apply

To apply for a place at Rabbsfarm Primary School you will need to contact our Local Education Authority and complete the online application. The link can be found here.  Applications are not done through the school directly and  an offer of a Nursery place does not guarantee your child a place in Reception.  

Should you have any queries regarding admissions, please contact our school office and we will be happy to advise and assist you with the process.
