Children whose fifth birthday is between September 1st and August 31st are admitted in September.

However, if parents/carers or the Nursery/Playgroup are concerned that a child may not be mature enough to start in September, it can be discussed, and if necessary, entrance delayed until January.

The planned admission limit for the academic year is 45.

Barton Primary School follows the Isle of Wight Schools Admissions policy.
