ADMISSION PROCEDURES

The County Council is responsible for admissions to the school.  Full details of policy and procedures are set out in the 2016 – 2017 “Schools in Suffolk” booklet which is available on line https://www.suffolk.gov.uk/children-families-and-learning/schools/applying-for-a-school-place/ or on request from the office.  Details of our Published Admissions Number (PAN) and our oversubscription criteria are availble in the "Directory of Schools in Suffolk" booklet for 2016 - 2017 which is also available on line (https://www.suffolk.gov.uk/children-families-and-learning/schools/applying-for-a-school-place/ ) or on request from the office.

We like the children to spend some time in school during the term prior to their admission. The invitation to do this always includes the opportunity to sample our school lunches. This helps the children to become used to school routine, and to gain confidence away from home. They are also able to get to know their class teacher and the other children who will be in their class. 

Parents who wish to send their children to Walsham School are very welcome to make a visit to the school before making a formal application. Please telephone the school office on 01359 259319 to make an appointment with the head teacher.
