Children are admitted to the Reception classes in the academic year in which they will be 5 years of age (the academic year runs from 1 September to 31st August).

All Reception children can start full time in the Autumn term (September) but those whose birthday falls between 1st January and 31st August have the option to attend part time (mornings) during the Autumn term and start full time in the Spring term (January).  If you are interested in finding out more about our school, we welcome you to attend one of our ‘Parent Tours’ arranged throughout the year.

Dates are advertised on our website and you can book your place by emailing us.

Applications for Reception places must be made by 15th January 2020. Places at Surrey primary schools will be offered on the basis of the preferences that are shown on the application form. Parents will be asked to rank up to four preferences and these will be considered under an equal preference system Children with a Statement of Special Educational Needs that names Wallace Fields Infant School will be allocated a place before other applicants are considered. In this way, the number of places available will be reduced by the number of children with a statement that has named the school.
