*Admission of pupils to school for the first time
Statutory School Age – A child has a legal right to be admitted to school full-time at the start of the school term following their fifth birthday.
Admission of 4 year olds – In line with the Somerset LA’s policy, our policy is to admit children to school in the academic year they become 5. Parents are offered admission at the start of term (in the September), for all children whose fifth birthday falls in the ensuing academic year. It is recognised that there is a parental right to defer entry up to the start of the term following the 5th birthday. (please see deferral statement)
Middle School. After children leave Timberscombe First School, they move into the Middle School system which teaches children from the age of 9 (Year 5) to 12 (year 8). The nearest Middle school is in Minehead. For further details click on the link for Minehead Middle School
