Do you have a child starting school in September 2021?         

We are holding Virtual Open Events for parents to meet the staff and get to know our school.  Please press here to see more information about the events and how to book a place.

Please see our Welcome to our School video below.

If you do have any particular questions or wish to discuss anything specific relating to your child, please do contact us either by email via or by telephone on 01202 424585.

Admissions to our School

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.

Please find a copy of our Admissions Policy and Appeal documents below.

Catchment Area

Please see the map at the bottom of this page which details our Catchment Area, and a document listing all the road names which fall within this. However, residence within the catchment area does not ensure that a place at the school is offered.

Applicants are ranked by distance to the school within each admission category and if places are oversubscribed and/or the school is full in the appropriate year group, the school will not be able to offer a place.

Admission arrangements for schools 2022-2023

Twynham Learning has introduced a harmonised admissions policy approach across its four primary-phase schools for 2022/23 and therefore all school policies have had changes to bring together the previously slightly varied arrangements. The Stourfield Infant School Admissions Policy 2022/2023 has therefore been set in line with these changes and is currently under consultation.            

Information on the public consultation on school admission arrangements for 2022-2023 can be found via the link shown below. Unless otherwise stated next to the relevant school(s), the consultation will run from 09 November 2020 to 18 December 2020.                                                                                                                     


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