Bath and North East Somerset Council School Admissions Information :
Children are offered three full terms of education in their Reception year and most are admitted in the September following their fourth birthday.
To ensure a happy and confident start to their formal schooling, children attend part-time sessions only for the first two weeks.
Children and parents are invited into school for a series of induction events in the Summer term preceding their entry. Home visits are held with all parents prior to children starting school. In the first term, parents are invited to curriculum events where information is shared to help them support their child’s learning.
In-Year admissions are requests for places at Roundhill Primary aside from the initial admission of Reception children each September.

Appeals For Places At Roundhill Primary
The Bath and Mendip Partnership Trust is the ‘Admissions Authority’ for Roundhill Primary. The Trust has a policy of not admitting pupils above the Published Admission Number (PAN) for each year group. This is because admitting pupils above the PAN means larger classes, which stretch teachers, equipment and space, and prejudice the education of pupils already on roll at the School.
The Bath and Mendip Partnership Trust follows Bath and North East Somerset Council’s Appeals Procedures and commissions Bath and North East Somerset Council to handle appeals on its behalf. Information on the appeals process, including the Primary Admissions Appeals Timetable for 2020, can be accessed from the link below.
