NOTE FOR PARENTS OF CHILDREN STARTING SCHOOL IN RECEPTION IN SEPTEMBER 2020

Please see the ‘Starting School’ section at the bottom of this page for more information.  If you have any questions, please contact the school via email at office@stourfieldinfants.com or telephone us on 01202 424585. Thank you.

Children are admitted to Stourfleld Infant School according to the criteria set out in our Admissions Policy.  Although we are part of a Multi Academy Trust and Twynham Learning is the Admissions Authority, we employ Bournemouth to administer our admissions. The school's Published Admissions Number is 120.

More information and details on how to apply for a school place (including deadlines for applications), can be found on the Bournemouth Borough Council Admissions Website, obtained from the school office, or from the Bournemouth Admissions Team at Dorset House 01202 456222.  Parents wishing to visit the school prior to registering their child are most welcome to contact the school office for an appointment to do so.

Starting School

Under normal circumstances we would hold Parents’ Welcome Meetings in June and invite children into school in July for a short play date.  However, unfortunately we find ourselves in a most peculiar situation and of course at the moment we are unsure when schools will be fully reopening and when social distancing measures will be lifted to allow parents/carers and the children to come into the school building.

We have posted a ‘Welcome’ letter to our new parents of children who will be starting school in September 2020.  This can be accessed under the Starting School heading on the left (and slightly above) on this web page.  Additionally, a timetable of the planned starting school arrangements is also shown here.

Our Reception class teachers will also be in contact with a number of pre-school settings in preparation for children starting school.  Home Visits are planned at the start of September, should parents sign up for one.


Please note that hard copies of any policies or forms can be obtained from the school office.
