Children are admitted to the Nursery in the school year in which they have their 4th birthday. The Nursery is part time and the days and times of the nursery classes for the term will be issued at the end of the preceding term. There is a separate Nursery Prospectus.
Full time education in the Infant Department begins in the school year that the children have their 5th birthday.
Children will be transferred to the Junior Department in the September following their 7th birthday i.e. children who are seven years old by August 31st.
On the last day of the Summer term of each school year with year six children, with parental permission, leaving at lunch time the afternoon sees transfer arrangements in operation. Children transferring from the nursery will spend part of the afternoon in their new reception class. The children transferring from the Infant to the Junior department will have their lunch with the junior children and then spend part of the afternoon in their new classes. They will then be taken back to their infant class for their normal home time.
Opportunities are made throughout the year for children to experience life in their new departments through shared resources, visits etc.
Separate arrangements are made to allow the new Nursery children to see the school. Details are given to the parents/guardians of the new Nursery children in the Summer term.
In the September following their 11th birthday the children transfer to a Secondary School. The preceding November parental forms are sent out to allow parents to indicate an initial preference for the following Secondary Schools - Ysgol Bryn Alyn, St Joseph’s or Ysgol Morgan Llwyd. In the past parents have indicated a preference for Ysgol Clywedog as well as Darland, St. David’s and Penley.
Visits to the appropriate schools are made in the summer term before the children leave Ysgol Penrhyn New Broughton CP. Parents are informed of the arrangements nearer the time.
Admission forms are available from the authority as the authority has responsibility for Admissions. (There is a copy of one below.) The forms should be returned to the authority.
There are obvious benefits in having a school uniform, and so the following has been adopted, and you are asked to send your child to school in school uniform.

The school sweatshirts, coats and Polo Shirts have the school badge on them and can be ordered from school at various times through the school year.
School ties are available from school.
The children should be encouraged to wear school uniform at all times. The school also has a policy to encourage the children to wear slippers or indoor shoes in school. The classrooms are carpeted and the wearing of slippers adds to the ethos of the school (and parents would not allow their children to wear muddy or dirty shoes in their home.)
All items of your child’s clothing should be clearly marked with your child’s name.
