As the school is a DBAT academy, the Local Board has delegated authority to set the admissions arrangements for the school and, following consultation, has now set the policy for the September 2018 intake (please see below).
Children are entitled to a full-time place in the September following their fourth birthday. However; there are some circumstances in which parents can seek a place for their child outside of their normal age group. In addition, from 2015, parents of a summer born child may choose not to send that child to school until the September following their fifth birthday. This is explained further in the Admissions Policy (see below).
Applications for Reception Year entry for the academic year starting in September 2018 must be submitted to Wiltshire Council, County Hall, Trowbridge, using the Wiltshire Council common application form. The majority of school applications are now done online, although a paper application can also be downloaded from the Wiltshire Council website. For children starting school in September 2017 the deadline for applications was midnight on 15 January 2017.

Parents of children wishing to change schools during the school year can also download the appropriate form from the Wiltshire Council website here.

For 2016/17, Seagry did not have a separate policy but was included in Wiltshire Council’s Determined Admission Arrangements (see below).
