Foundation (Reception/EYFS) Stage Admissions

June 2021 - The following information is not currently applicable due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions. Please see our dedicated EYFS Sept 2021 page for the most current information.

For children joining us in Foundation Stage in September (the start of the academic year in which they turn five), we have a full induction programme for both parents and children. Parents will be invited to an Information Meeting in the summer term, and the children will have a number of opportunities to visit their new class and teacher. To help these very young children settle well in school we have a staggered entry throughout September. If this is something that will be difficult to manage due to work commitments, then we also have some (limited) provision for your child to be well cared for and stay at school all day.


Mid Year (In year transfer) Admissions

In our school, we have children who arrive and leave throughout the school year and others who stay with us right from Foundation Stage to Year 6. We know that this can be an unsettling time for both children and parents, therefore whenever a child joins us we have an induction programme to help them and their families settle in as quickly and happily as possible. You will be contacted by our school Transition Co-ordinator once your child/children have started, but if you have any specific questions about the school prior to starting then please feel free to email the school office on or alternatively we may be able to arrange a video call for you with our Transition Co-ordinator.


Moving On?

Once you know that your child will be leaving Lyneham Primary, maybe due to a posting or moving house, you will need to complete a Notification of Child Leaving form. This form can be downloaded by clicking here or asking for a paper copy from the school office. Completed forms should be emailed to or returned to the school office as soon as possible.

You will need to contact your new school directly to find out their admissions procedure and apply accordingly.
