Below are the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions. We hope you will find them useful.
What is the school's catchment area?
The catchment area for North Baddesley Infant School is North Baddesley and Chilworth, as shown in the image below, but please check with us or with the Admissions Team at Hampshire County Council if you are unsure. An interactive map of the catchment area can be viewed by clicking here. Your permanent address determines your catchment school, and only your permanent address can be used on the application form.
How do I apply for a school place?
Please click here for online applications via the Hampshire County Council site. Alternatively, paper application forms are available and can be obtained from the school office.
When will my child start?
Although your child does not have to attend school full time until the term of their fifth birthday, we feel children have the best possible start if they follow our carefully designed induction programme which includes a one-to-one meeting with the teacher before they officially start.
What can I expect before they start?
You and your child will be invited to a number of visits and activities before September to help them become confident about starting school. We also work closely with pre-schools to help ensure the transition to school is a smooth one. We give further details of these arrangements once a place has been confirmed.
