Byfleet Primary school is a Local Authority School supported by Surrey Education Authority. Children start here in the September of the school year in which they will become five. Surrey County Council produces a booklet giving information abut all primary schools in Surrey. This is available in September prior to the child starting at Byfleet. Parents should fill in the application form provided with the booklet and return it to the local authority for admission to Reception.
The school arranges visits in the Autumn Term and prospective applicants are invited to attend. Before joining our Reception class pupils are invited in for an Induction programme in the July and parents will meet the new teacher to discuss the organisation of the year, the curriculum and any relevant information the parent would like to share. The school accepts applications for pupils to join other year groups providing spaces are available.
At Byfleet the published admission number is 30 at age 4+. As an LEA school we adhere to Surrey County Council’s admissions criteria which is:
1. Looked after children.
2. Exceptional arrangements.
3. Siblings of existing pupils.
4. Children for whom the school is the nearest to their home.
5. Any other applicant.
