Admissions and new starters

September 2021 intake


Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you'll make in their early lives. We understand how important it is and in any normal year, visits are very welcome. However, due to the ongoing global pandemic, we were unable to welcome visitors or hold open days in the autumn. 


School places for September 2021 have now been allocated and we are looking forward to welcoming all of our new starters and their families in September. We will be in touch with you soon regrading your child's transition in to school. 


If you didn't get the school place you wanted (or didn't apply in time for the first round) there is still hope of a place at Chilthorne Domer Church School. We are now able to hold socially distanced tours so do get in touch with the office to arrange a visit. You have until the 4th May to submit a late application and the 17th May to submit an appeal to the outcome of your original application. More details can be found here: Primary Admissions Guidance 


Mrs Chesterton is usually available at the end of the phone and is happy to chat to any prospective parents - please just phone the school office to make an appointment. 


Please do also have a look at our latest Parent Survey results - you can find these using the link below:

Admissions are managed by Somerset County Council Admissions team using the appropriate published admissions and over-subscription criteria. If you have a pre-school child, Somerset County Council will send you all the relevant information regarding choosing a school. Applications need to be submitted by 15th January 2020.
