Our catchment area covers Moulton, Gazeley, Dalham, Desningham, Higham, Needham Street, Kentford and Kennet End. We also welcome applications from those living outside the catchment area. Suffolk Local Education Authority is responsible for admission to Moulton Primary School. Our published admissions number (P.A.N) is 30. Full details of the LA’s admissions policy and procedures are set out in the current Suffolk County Council booklet ‘Admissions to Schools in Suffolk – Your guide on how and when to apply to a school place’. This booklet is available from the School Office, through Suffolk County Council on 0845 600 0981or online at www.suffolk.gov.uk/admissionstoschools.
Children can be admitted to school in the September of the academic year in which they are 4 years old. Children are offered full-time education from this point, according to parental choice. Although most children start full time at school in September, we also understand that children are individuals with individual needs. For some children, a staggered entry into full time schooling is more beneficial. Because we recognise how important it is that your child has a happy and successful transition into school, we aim to be flexible in our approach. Please talk to us about what is best for your child.
In the Summer Term prior to the September in which children are due to start school, they are invited to attend three half-day sessions over a period of three weeks. These visits help familiarise the children and their parents with the school environment. Please
