Admissions Arrangements for Fairhaven Primary can be found on the Dudley.gov web site.
Fairhaven Primary School has a pupil admission limit of 45 children.
Completing Admission Forms
Children join reception class in school in the month of September following their 4th birthday. Admissions forms can be completed online, usually from the September/October prior to your child joining the school by pasting the following link:- http://www.dudley.gov.uk/admissions/
A 'Parents Guide to Primary School Admissions' booklet will be available on the Dudley.gov website with information on deadlines and a FAQ tab is available. Admissions can also be contacted on 01384 814223 if you have any further queries.
All children commence school at the beginning of the Autumn Term (see 'Information for Parents and Diary dates' tab).
Prior to joining our reception class, children are given an opportunity to attend school for a number of induction sessions during the summer term prior to their admission. Parents are invited to an evening meeting in school to discuss procedures, early learning needs and home-school co-operation.
Parents are also invited to attend an informal one-to-one interview with the teacher of the Reception Class. This enables us to complete a profile of each child and gives an opportunity to discuss any problems or queries that you may have.
Applications for places other than at the normal point of entry.
If you wish to apply for a school place after the normal intake in September, or for a place in any other year group and you reside within the Dudley Authority, then you must complete an application form 'Application for Admission to a School during the school year (In-Year Admission). The council's Admissions Service is responsible for coordinating all applications/waiting lists for school places.
Application forms can be obtained from School Admissions 01384 816472.
With an admission number of 45, it is necessary to group some children "across" year groups in mixed age classes. All class groupings are made on a mixed ability basis. The curriculum is organised in such a way that all pupils cover the appropriate work.
Children will be in mixed classes twice throughout their time at Fairhaven as follows:
If split in Year 1 they will be in a split class in Year 4
If split in Year 2 they will be in a split class in Year 5
If split in Year 3 they will be in a split class in Year 6
