Joining LJS in Reception

We are non-selective in our Reception classes, so the first 40 children registered are guaranteed to be offered a place. We do, however, reserve the right to withdraw this offer if it becomes apparent that there are behavioural difficulties that we were not made aware of at the time the offer of a place was accepted.

Entry after Reception

If entry is required after Reception class, we ask that a child visits for two days. During this time the children will spend time with their potential Year group and undertake some assessments, or puzzle books in our younger years. Please be advised that there is not a pass or fail mark – our aim is for each child to feel at ease and enjoy their time with us.

We aim to ensure that all of the information that we are able to collate during your child’s visit will enable him or her to be happy and confident in joining his or her peers. If you would like your child to join the School in the latter part of Key stage Two, Years Five and Six for example, then this assessment data is also extremely useful when looking at potential senior school options.
