Bristol City Council Admissions

Pre-School Class Admissions

Children can be accepted for the Pre-School Class from the age of 3 years.

The date your child can start Pre-School depends on your child’s birthday as detailed below:

Child’s birthday 1 January to 31 March child can start the beginning of term on or after 1 April
Child’s birthday 1 April to 31 August child can start beginning of term on or after 1 September
Child’s birthday 1 September to 31 December child can start beginning of term on or after 1 January

Having accepted the offer of a place parents are invited to a meeting to be given full information about the aims and organisation of the Pre-School.  Parents are very welcome to seek clarification of any issue concerning the Pre-School at any time.  Visits are also most welcome by prior arrangement, such a visit will reassure you of the high quality provision of the Pre-School.

If you have any questions regarding our Pre-School please contact the School offices by email; [email protected]

Entry to the Pre-School does not guarantee entry into the Reception class as the admission policy of Bristol needs to be applied.
