Admissions Policy

POLICY FOR

ADMISSION/REGISTRATIONS

 

Golders Hill School is an “inclusive” school.

 

Prospective parents are always welcome at Golders Hill and are offered a tour of the school to see each class in action.

 

On registering your child, a fee of £100 is payable with the completed Registration Form.  You will also need to decide at what age you wish your child to start with us.  We do not accept Registration Forms for unborn children.

 

Golders Hill automatically accepts siblings.  Our remaining intake of children is on a ‘first-come-first-served’ basis.

 

Normal admission is at the beginning of the school year, i.e. in September.    There are 16 spaces each day in our Pre-Nursery class, where children can attend Golders Hill from the age of 12 months.  There are a limited amount of places available for our Nursery (2+) and Kindergarten (3+).  Some places are usually available for Reception and upwards (4+), but this depends on the numbers of children moving up from the class below.

 

Children may join us throughout the year, subject to availability. 

 

Once we have received a completed registration form and fee, you will be sent an offer letter, contractual agreement and deposit fee invoice.  You will also be sent a current fee schedule for transparency of fees. Should you wish to accept the offer of a place at Golders Hill School for your child, you will need to return the contract, signed and witnessed along with the required deposit by the date on the offer letter.  Until such time that this is received, there is no place being guaranteed for your child but you will be offered first refusal if it is before the return date on the offer letter. After this time, the offer will be archived unless we hear from you.

 

Once the contract and deposit have been received by the School, you will receive written confirmation of your place and be sent further information regarding your child’s start date.   

 

Fees are paid termly in advance and are payable on or by the first day of term.  One term’s notice, in writing, is required if a child is leaving as per clauses 9,10,11 in our contract.

 

Pupils With Special Needs

 

Parents are encouraged to visit the school to discuss how their child's needs might be addressed.  Our Special Needs Policy gives more specific information.

 

Pupils With English As An Additional Language (EAL)

 

The School welcomes pupils who may be at early or more advanced stages of learning English as an additional language.  The School has a full inclusion policy and provides individual support as and when needed.
