There are seven classes in the school. Children are taught in year groups from Foundation through to Year 6. In addition to classroom based learning, children are taught in the learning bay, the Team Room, in the school grounds and on educational visits. The school's published admissions number is 30.
Admissions to The Spinney Primary School are organised by the Local Authority Admissions Officers. For more information please see below.
If children are 4 on August 31st they may start at the Spinney at the beginning of the Autumn term. We have a staggered entry over an initial three week period to allow the children sufficient time to settle in and by the fourth week it is hoped that all the children will be in full-time. We will however, consult with parents over what is best for their child.
During the Summer term we organise a number of drop-ins and a special Teddy Bear Picnic so that you and your child can find out about our school. The Foundation Stage teacher will also try to visit your child in their nursery setting where this is practicable.
Nursery provision for children of 3+, is shared between a number of providers including Homerton Nursery and Children's Centre, Colville Primary School, Cherry Hinton Church of England School and Little Cherries at Bewick Bridge School. Although we have no nursery on-site we work closely with colleagues in our local nurseries to ensure a smooth transition. Full criteria for admission to the school are available in our Admissions policy.
As with many Cambridgeshire schools there is some pupil mobility within the school year. If a place becomes available for a year group other than Foundation Stage and you are interested in your child joining The Spinney please contact Admissions Officers in the Local Authority for more information.
