Prospective Parents September 2021

Fleet Infant School would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our prospective new families. 


Unfortunately we are unable to offer our usual prospective parent visits to the school as Government guidance states that schools should not have any non essential visitors to the school site.  This allows us to keep our staff and children as safe as possible and limits the risk of introducing any new infections to our school community.  We are very disappointed that we cannot show our amazing school to you in person but hope, that by looking at the videos, powerpoints and information below, you are able to get a flavour of our school.


A child's first year in school is very important and we offer a caring, stimulating environment which is specifically designed to meet the needs of four and five year olds.  To ensure a smooth transition between home and school there are usually many opportunities for parents and children to visit the school to take part in a variety of activities prior to full time attendance. Whilst this year's transition has needed to be carefully arranged due to the coronavirus pandemic and government guidance we sincerely hope that things are back to normal for our new children starting in September 2021.


Due to COVID-19 restrictions imposed by the government we are also unable to hold our usual evening presentation to introduce you to our school community.  We are currently designing a virtual online version so please bear with us whilst this is in progress.


We look forward to meeting you at some point in the future but until then please check back on this page and scroll down as we will be adding more information for you shortly.



A warm welcome from Mrs Clark

How to apply for a school place for your child

If your child was born between 1 September 2016 and 31 August 2017, they will be eligible to start school in the school year beginning September 2021.  You will need to complete an online application between November 1st 2020 and January 15th 2021 (please see the link below).  If you are not able to complete an application online, you can collect a paper copy from your catchment school and post this in.


If you applied online, you will be sent an e-mail confirming the outcome of your application on the notification date April 16th 2021.  If you applied using a paper form, you will be sent a letter on the notification date by post. Please allow 2 to 3 working days for your letter to arrive.

The County Website

All information about applying for a school place is published on the County website where parents can apply on-line at any time for an in-year application or between 1st Nov and 15th Jan for the appropriate New Year R Intake.

We hope that your family will join us in September 2021 but until we are a little closer to your children starting school, here are a few things you can be practising over the year to get your child ready for school.
