At St Thomas' CE Primary Academy we try to ensure that the transition to school is as easy and as simple as possible for both parent and child. We are happy to provide you with all the information you need to decide which school is right for you.
We encourage prospective parents to contact the schools for a personal tour or attend our Open Days in November (please book by contacting the schools) as we would love you to come along and see our schools in action.
However, if you are unable to visit us or if you have any further questions following your visit then please do not hesitate to ask. Feel free to call us, send us an email or pop in and talk to one of our helpful office staff.
We look forward to welcoming you and your child soon.

Until 31 December 2020 All European Economic Area (‘EEA’) and Swiss national children have the right, under UK immigration law, to enter the country to access a school. Any EEA or Swiss national arriving in the UK by 31 December 2020 is eligible to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme, and continue to be able to study in schools in England as they do now if their application is successful.
'Non EEA' nationals entering the UK, who wish to apply for a state-funded school place, should check that they have a right of abode or that the conditions of their immigration status otherwise permit them to access a state-funded school.
Foreign nationals cannot use the 6-month Standard Visitor visa, or 11-month Short-term Study (English language) visa, to enter the UK to enrol as a pupil at a school.
Children aged under 18 are classed as dependent children if they are the children of foreign nationals who have settled status in the UK, or who are entering the UK on a work visa or Student visa, or who are part of a family entering or residing in the UK under the immigration route for British National (Overseas) citizens and their dependants. These children are entitled to enter the country with their family, or to join their family and study at a state-funded or independent school once in the UK.
Parents are reminded to ensure their child holds the correct entry visa before making a school application. If a school or the local authority has concerns about a particular child’s immigration status they will refer the case to the Home Office.
