As Nansledan School is brand new and we don't know how many, and of what age, the children applying will be, we are aiming to open up 4 classes for September 2019. There will be two Reception Classes (4/5 year olds) and x 1 mixed KS1 class (children who would be in the Y1 & Y2 age bracket) and x 1 mixed KS2 class (children who are in the Y3 to Y6 age bracket). As the years go by, with more children coming in, rising numbers will mean eventually each year group has its own class.
Should we reach our maximum numbers at initial opening stage, then we would apply standard admissions procedures i.e. a sliding scale of children with additional needs, children in care and 'as the crow flies' distance door-to-door. This admissions procedure would then be in force, on a permanent basis, once the school has its full 60 pupils per academic year intake.
If your child was born between 1 September 2014 and 31 August 2015, you will need to apply for a school place for September 2019. The application window is now open and is being co-ordinated by Cornwall Council via its online Admissions portal.

Deferred/Delayed Admission to Reception Year
The majority of children start school full-time in the September following their fourth birthday. However, in some cases parents believe that starting part-time or starting later in the school year would be more appropriate for their child, particularly where their child was born prematurely and would otherwise have been due to start school a year later.
Parents can speak to the Family Information Service on 0800 587 8191 for advice and request a meeting with the head of the school where they have been allocated, or are hoping to gain, a place.
