Starting School

It is county policy to admit all children to school in September of the school year in which they will be five, and, by law, all children must start school at the beginning of the term after their fifth birthday.

The school aims to make the transition into the school setting as smooth as possible.

Transferring to Secondary School

The partner school for Milton Road Primary is Chesterton Community College. Early in the Autumn Term, parents of pupils in Year 6 receive detailed information about all secondary schools together with a preference form. About this time, secondary schools arrange open evenings. Parents are notified of their child’s secondary place towards the end of the Spring Term. The majority of secondary schools offer the opportunity to spend a day in their school at the end of the Summer Term in Year 6. Detailed records about each pupil are forwarded to the allocated secondary school to facilitate continuity and progression in learning.
