All children are admitted to Mendip Green in the September of the academic year that they reach 5 years of age.
In the summer term meetings are held for the parents of new Reception children. This is an opportunity for us to welcome you and your child to our school and tell you a little about us. It also gives you a chance to ask any questions, get to know the staff and tell us any special information about your child.
Every child attends part time for an initial period, to allow the teaching staff to get to know the children well. This also enables the children to begin school in a smaller group and to become familiar with the new routines. All children should attend full time by the end of Term 1. Children feed into school from a wide range of pre-school settings. We make every effort to visit the children in their pre-schools but if this is not possible we will talk to their key workers in the summer term before they start.
If you wish to apply for a place for your child to attend Mendip Green Primary School, as a Local Authority maintained school all our Admissions are dealt with and allocated by North Somerset School Admissions in line with their current guidelines for those children starting school in September.
The above North Somerset link also provide you with relevant information for over subscription criteria together with admission numbers for Mendip Green School. Our Admission Numbers for Reception Intake are currently 90 pupils, 3 classes taking up to 30 pupils each.
Any prospective parents are welcome to visit the school to meet the Head and staff and see the school in action. Please telephone us for an appointment.
For applications for your child to Transfer to our School In-Year, you will need to contact North Somerset Admissions & Transport Team.
If you have added your name to the waiting list for a space at our school, please remember to contact North Somerset Admissions to add yourself to the list each term.
