All children can now attend school full-time in the September following their fourth birthday. Parents can request that their child attends part-time until the child reaches compulsory school age, which is the term after their fifth birthday. If a parent opts for part-time, the children will attend 5 morning sessions starting in either September or January.


The school liaises closely with the ‘Otley Under Fives’ and operates a series of joint activities between them and Class 1.


At the end of Year 6 most children will transfer to Farlingaye High School. Prior to the date of transfer a senior member of staff will visit us to meet parents and children and to answer any queries. Over the course of the year, the High School organizes a number of ‘taster’ days for pupils about to transfer, in order to give them insights into life at High School. In addition, arrangements are made for parents to visit the school. Full details of the application and admissions process for High Schools are made available to parents at the relevant time.
