Admission of Children to Yew Tree Primary School 

Early Years Lead: Miss J Carter

Parents are legally required to present their children for education­ at the start of the term immediately after the child’s 5th birthday.  However in Tameside it is Council policy to provide Education from the September of the school year in which the child is 5 years old. All of these children are eligible to begin school in September.


Open Evenings are arranged for the parents of new entrants in Nursery and Reception during June and July. Pre-school visits will be arranged for Nursery and Reception children at the beginning of the September half term. Details will be given at the open evenings.


The Infant and Junior (The Early Years, Key Stage 1 and 2) operate a system whereby all parents are able to see their child's teacher every term. Parents are, of course welcome to come and discuss a particularly pressing problem, when the need arises, outside the times set aside for regular consultation. Reports are sent out by teachers at the end of the Summer Term.
