Do you have a child staring school in September 2021?         

Please see below (towards the bottom of this page) in the section named 'Children Starting Reception Year In September 2021'


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.

Children Starting Reception Year In September 2021

Unfortunately, this year we are unable to hold open mornings or parent tours for parents of children wishing to start with us in September 2021 in our usual way, due to the current situation with the coronavirus.  We were hoping to be able to do parent tours in small groups, but now due to the new restrictions on social distancing we have been advised not to do any group visits of any kind.  Therefore, we have had to alter our plans and we will now be providing virtual and on line information for prospective parents on our website. 

Further information will follow soon and will be placed here on the website.

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.



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