For other Prospective Parents, e.g. for families new to the area or in-year admissions, please contact the school on 01372 465348 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Admission to Reception
Children are admitted at the beginning of the school year in which they become five, and are offered a full-time place in September.
As a Foundation school, Claygate Primary School is its own admissions authority, but in common with most Foundation schools, has delegated the operation of admissions to the Local Authority, Surrey County Council. To find up to date admissions arrangements and details about how to apply, either as part of the normal admissions intake or during the school year, follow this link to the admissions pages of Surrey's website.
For children joining the school in Reception in September, we arrange an induction programme during the preceding summer term which is designed to make the transition to ‘big school' as smooth as possible.
We are usually pleased to show prospective parents around the school by appointment. However, due to the COVID-19 restrictions access to the school is not currently possible. Please contact the school office and a member of the admin team will be happy to let you know the arrangements.
Admission to other year groups:
Prospective parents with children in other year groups should also contact the office for up to date information, we will be pleased to offer your child a place if we have one in the relevant year group.
As for entry in Reception, Surrey is the Admissions Authority, and the offer of a place will therefore come from the Local Authority rather than the school. Information about in-year admissions is available from Surrey's website by following the link above.
