Moving to a new school

Most of our pupils start at Layfield Primary shortly after their third birthday when they become eligible to join our nursery. Prior to this they may have attended a pre-school setting such as a child-minder, or been at home.

Sometimes it is necessary for a pupil to join or leave our school during the primary phase because they have moved from or are moving to another school. Please see Stockton’s Admissions information – see link above – for further details.

At the end of Year 6, pupils usually transfer to one of our local secondary schools.

Whenever a pupil moves into or from our school, we do our best to ensure that transition is a smooth as it can be. Parents and carers are encouraged to visit our school, meet with key staff and discuss admission arrangements. Children are also encouraged to participate in a visit to familiaraise themselves with the new setting and provide an opportunity for them to ask questions.
