Admissions




The school will admit a child for a nursery place at the beginning of the school year if the child has reached his/her 3rd birthday on or before August 31st of that calendar year. A full time school place will be available for children from the beginning of the school year when the child has reached his/her 4th birthday on or before August 31st of that calendar year. (A child is required by law to attend school full time from the beginning of the term following his/her fifth birthday.)

All pupils who attend Ysgol Y Gogarth have additional learning needs. The majority have a Statement of Special Educational Needs before they start school but on occasion a child will be going through the process of being statemented and in this case we may provide a school place whilst a multi-professional assessment is being completed.

Children can be referred to Ysgol Y Gogarth at any stage of their education i.e. in their nursery year or up to Year 14 (if appropriate). Usually a suggestion is made to parents by the Local Education Authority (LEA) to visit the school as the Statement approaches completion.

As pupil statements are completed throughout the year we try to accept pupils as the need arises. Only if we are exceptionally full would we ask parents to wait until September for a placement.
