Entry to the school is normally at Pre-School, in our Early Years Department
Our Pre-School is extremely popular and it is advisable to put your child’s name down as early as possible. There is a non-refundable registration fee of £100 to help cover some of our administration costs. We offer places for children requiring Monday to Friday Pre-School education, for 5 full days a week.
Once a place is offered, a deposit of £500 is required to secure the place and is refunded when a child leaves at the end of year six.
We occasionally have spaces in other year groups, please contact the admissions secretary, Mrs McBreen, for details – 020 8866 0660 (option 1). Spaces are limited and therefore should you be interested in any spaces across the school you are advised to contact us, to avoid disappointment.
Arrange a Visit
If you wish to visit the School for a show round, this can be arranged at a mutually convenient time. Please telephone 020 8866 0660 and press option 1 for Admissions. Appointments are scheduled during the School working week. We look forward to meeting you.
Once you have viewed the school, you need to return the completed Registration Form, together with a registration fee of £100. When a place becomes available, an assessment will be arranged for your child. Once your child has been assessed, we will notify you of the outcome of the assessment as soon as possible and this will be confirmed in writing. The offer letter will include a Parent Contract, you will be given one week to accept our offer and a further deposit of £500 will be required at this stage to secure the place.
Assessments for Reception upwards require your child to be in school for the day. They will complete English and Mathematics assessments and their ability to cope with the educational and social demands of the year group will be evaluated. Pre-School children will complete a short assessment in the setting. Offers are subject to satisfactory references and reports. All children must be fully toilet trained and able to use the facilities independently.
School fees must be paid in full and in line with the parent contract, on or before the first day of each academic term. Late interest is charged on any areas as the school expects parents to pay fees on time in line with the parent contract.

Parents can use childcare vouchers for school fees , whilst a child is in the Early Years Foundation Stage. From year one upwards, childcare vouchers can only be used for payment of before school or after school clubs or activities.
We are registered with the majority of childcare voucher providers and will always register with new childcare voucher providers, if helpful to a parent.
Certain childcare vouchers require a reference number for Reddiford School. No childcare voucher providers require a reference specific to either Early Years, Pre Prep or Prep departments, as the following reference numbers cover all departments of Reddiford School.

Enhanced Recommend a Friend Scheme
We are always delighted when parents recommend Reddiford School to their friends and family for their children. This is wonderful as reputation is so important.
In recognition of this, we reward parents with the following “Recommend a Friend” discount when a child they have recommended to us, firstly registers with Reddiford School and secondly, takes up an offered place and joins Reddiford School.
To this end, parents who recommend Reddiford to their family and friends for their child, receive the following one off discount payments:
1) £100 when a prospective parent of a recommended child completes the registration process for the child to join us (this is credited to the invoice of the parents who recommended the child, on the invoice after the prospective child has registered).
2) £900 when the recommended child joins Reddiford School (this is credited to the invoice of the parents who recommended the child, on the invoice after the child has actually joined).

In line with the Parent Code of Practice, £250 charge will be levied when a reference/report is completed for a child (for transfer to another school), before the secondary transfer stage. The charge of £250 for each report will be added to the school fees.
Any parent or prospective parent wishing to apply for a bursary / hardship grant should contact the Bursar via email on firstname.lastname@example.org for an application form, as all grants require a confidential application form with supporting documents which is then confidentially assessed by the Bursar and Head Teacher with the governors ratifying bursary grants.
Scholarships are awarded on rare occasions, at the point of entry / assessment only and are not based on any financial assessment. The Head Teacher personally grants scholarships based on how a prospective pupil performs at the assessment stage of the admissions process in comparison with the Reddiford peer group. If a child is truly exceptionally gifted then a scholarship might be considered.
