If you are interested in sending your child to one of our schools please do call us to arrange an informal visit so you can come and have a look around. We would be more than happy to show you around and where possible provide a senior member of staff for you to speak to and answer any questions you may have. Full guidance in regards to our admissions policy can be found at the bottom of this page in our Admissions Policy.
All admissions to the schools within the Federation are handled by Norfolk Children’s Services Admissions Department. Applications for places at the school must be sent to them, not direct to the school. Application forms are available from the school office and you can apply online here.
Across the Federation we try to prepare children for starting school in September by holding several familiarisation events in the summer term. Parents of pupils enrolled for September will receive notification of the timetable for these events which include taster afternoons or mornings, meetings for parents, and home visits so we can make your child’s transition into Reception class as easy as possible for them.
Norfolk County Council have produced a Parents Guide to Admissions which may answer many of the questions you have about your child starting school - see below.
However, if you do have any further questions please feel free to call us or pop into the school and speak to the school secretary.
Separate Admissions Policies for each of the Nar Valley Federation Academies (Castle Acre, Sporle and Narborough) are available to download below (please also note the academic year each one applies to):
