Admissions to School


Admission Arrangements

Boxford School’s admissions are determined by the local education authority www.suffolk.gov.uk/admissions.  Children normally attend school full-time in the September following their fourth birthday. All primary schools must offer children a full-time place at the start of the Autumn term in September. However, legally a child does not have to start full-time education until the term after their fifth birthday. Parents may request a phased entry timetable, in consultation with the school. Alternative in year, or out of year, start dates will only be considered after consultation with the admissions authority and the school.

Information on how the arrangements work can be found on the Suffolk County Council School Admissions website.  These include the selection and over subscription criteria, a statement of our current published admission number (PAN), and the process for applications.
