Early Years Foundation Stage Admissions at Ickworth Park Primary
We recognise that choosing a school for your child can be a bewildering process. Choosing the right school can be based upon several factors:
- Proximity to where you live
- Friends and family recommendations
- Pre-school attendance
- Older siblings attending the same school
- Research you may have done online
- Ease of getting your child to school if you work
Places are limited to 30 at Ickworth and we are often oversubscribed. By looking at a school you can begin to get a ‘feel’ for the environment and will know your child will feel comfortable in our setting, there is a lot of information on the other pages on this website. Children are in primary school for 7 years, so getting it right is important both for your child’s happiness and your peace of mind.
If your child will be 4 years old on September 1st 2023 then you are able to apply for a place in our Early Years class.
You will need to apply through Suffolk County Councils admissions process- information and forms can be found on their website firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for applications is usually mid January and the precise date can be found on the Suffolk County Councils admissions website, see link above.
