Joining our School
If you are considering Telford Infant School for your child you should find lots of useful information and links on this website. If you have any questions that you cannot find answers to please do contact the school office, we are always happy to help. If you would like to look around our school please contact us and we will arrange a tour of the school at a convenient time. We are happy for you to bring your child with you, or not, whatever suits.
We also hold open days specifically for families considering sending their children to our school. Prospective families have an opportunity to meet key members of staff to learn more about our school. Families are offered guided tours around school. Open events allow you to see first hand all of the busy learning, play and fun that takes place everyday. You will meet our caring staff and see our super learners in action so that you can make an informed choice about your child’s future education.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 we are unable to offer parents of children due to start in Reception in September 2021 to attend our school for an open day at this time. However, please do continue to check our website for updates and how open days will operate during the Autumn term.

Telford Infant School is an inclusive school, welcoming children from all backgrounds and abilities. We are 3 form entry taking 90 children in each year group with a maximum of 30 children in each class.
In Warwickshire children start Infant or Primary School the September after their fourth birthday and admissions are managed by Warwickshire Council.

The following criteria are used by the Local Authority when the school has received more applications than places available after children with Statements of Special Educational Needs/Education Health and Care Plans have been admitted first:
1. Children in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, a local authority and were looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a residence order or special guardianship order).
2. Children living in the priority area who have a brother or sister at the school at the time of admission.
3. Children living in the priority area who have a brother or sister at the partner junior school at the time of admission.
4. Other children living in the priority area.
5. Children living outside the priority area who have a brother or sister at the school at the time of admission.
6. Children living outside the priority area who have a brother or sister at the partner junior school at the time of admission.
7. Other children living outside the priority area.
Within each criterion priority is given in order of straight line distance between the home address and school. The shortest distance has the highest priority. Our school’s priority area is defined on the Warwickshire Admissions website. Please follow the link below:
