We have 2 classes of 30 children in each year, giving 60 places per year. There are therefore 14 classes with 420 available places in total at Fynamore. Wiltshire Council is the admitting authority for our school.

Admission and Oversubscription Criteria

The full Local Authority admission critera, applicable to Fynamore School, can be accessed by clicking here

 

If there are more applications than places available, then the straight-line distance from the child’s home address to the school will be used as a tie-break. Those living closest to the school with be given priority. When two or more children with the same priority for admission live exactly the same distance from the school, the available places will be decided by random allocation (casting lots).

 

Part Time Entry in Reception

The beginning of the school year is a very tiring time for new Reception pupils. Therefore, all Reception pupils attend school on a part time basis for the first few weeks of September. After this period, all children will be able to attend school on a full time basis. However, parents of Reception children who will be 5 after 31 March in their Reception year are offered the opportunity of remaining part time until just before Christmas.
