Dallington School has a non-selective entry policy, we work on a first come first served basis and take children from 3-11 years old.  There is no entry exam or formal test for our school. Most children join our School, at three and four years of age.  

Once a place is secured in either Lower or Upper Nursery, children automatically progress through our School until Year 6.  

Children may be registered to start in our nursery at the beginning of either the Autumn Term (September), Spring Term (January) or Summer Term (April) following their third birthday, but registration does not guarantee a place at Dallington. 

Registration  is compulsory for all children on our admissions journey.   Early registration is strongly advised as we work on a first come first served basis.  The registration fee is non-refundable as it covers administrative costs.

Once you have registered your child, their name will be placed on our Entry List and we will be in touch with you again nearer their entry time. Until then, we like to keep you informed by emailing you our Newsletter, twice a term. 

Two terms prior to entry, your child will be invited to spend time with us, quite informally, to join in activities, meet other children and the staff. Thereafter, offers of places are made.

For occasional places (those joining our school in Years 1 to 6) children spend the day at the school, as a member of their appropriate peer group and we can get to know each other.  Afterwards, we will discuss with parents whether or not this is the most appropriate setting for their child.
