Pye Bank is a Voluntary Aided Primary School in which the Governing Body is the Admission Authority and responsible for admissions. However, we work closely with the Local Education Authority and are also advised in our responsibility by statutory requirements, the Sheffield Diocesan Board of Education and our own commitment to the local community.
The admission number for is 60 and children will be admitted during the Autumn terms following their 4th birthday. Sometimes, parents wish to wait longer or may ask that their child attends part time for a short period. Such requests will always be considered and may then be agreed where it appears to be in the best interests of the child.
All children must be admitted by the term following their 5th birthday. This is the compulsory school age.
Before children start school, parents/carers are invited to meet the staff and other children, and a welcome pack is given to the children and parents at this visit. Parents are also offered a home visit by the Class Teacher and Teaching Assistant.
If children are anxious or unhappy they will not make progress so it is important to make the transition from home to school or from another pre-school education setting to school, as smooth and friendly as possible for the child, parents and staff.
