School Admissions

Pupils may be admitted to full time school (Reception Class) in the September of the year in which they attain the age of five.

The starting schools booklet below is published not only to comply with the requirements of the Education Acts 1980 – 1998, and appropriate regulations but also sets out details about many aspects of education within the Monmoutshire County Council area and to assist parents and carers when choosing a school.

The Local Authority would like to assure parents and carers that Monmouthsire County Council deals with each application in a fair and equitable manner, using the school admissions criteria.
