We are a Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School with approximately 80 children currently on roll. At present, our planned admission limit for each year group is 15. With in-year admissions, we are, in exceptional circumstances, able to go above this.
Please view our admissions policy here for the most up-to-date information.
Further advice from the Local Authority is available here.
Preparing your child to start primary school can be a daunting experience but we believe that good communication is key. 'School ready' is essentially about having strong social skills, coping emotionally being away from parents, being relatively independent in their own personal care and having a curiosity and desire to learn. Please ask in school for support and guidance.
Transfers from Other Schools
If parents wish to transfer their child to Pembridge from another school, into any other year group apart from Reception, the matter will need to be discussed with the Head Teacher of the pupil's present school in the first instance. If it is then decided to make a formal request for transfer, this should be then be made in writing using the standard form available from the school.
Parents who wish their child/children to attend our school are strongly encouraged to come and visit the school before making a decision. Appointments to view the school can be made through the school secretary and the Headteacher will be delighted to show you and your child around. We are also happy for your child to come for a ‘taster’ day should this be helpful for you.
