Joining our School

Choosing the right Lower School for your child is a vitally important decision for every parent to make and we hope that our website will help you decide if our small and friendly village school is the right choice for your family. 

We are a happy and caring school where a love of learning is inspired in our children by a stimulating environment. Every child is valued and respected and encouraged to be an independent learner, and our children’s achievements are celebrated.  Class sizes are small and led by a class teacher.  We also have the support of teaching assistants across the school.  All lessons are tailored to meet a range of abilities and learning styles and cater for any children with special educational needs or who have been identified as gifted and talented in a particular field.

Most of our pupils join the school from Reception class, the school year in which they turn 5,  but we welcome children to join us at any other time.

In both instances we ask you to complete a Turvey Lower School Admissions Form and return this to the school.

You will also need to complete the Local Authority Admissions Process which is outlined below.

If you do not live in Bedford Borough please complete an application form from your home Local Authority.

Early Years

If your child will be joining us from the start of their education in Early Years (Reception class -academic year in which they turn 5) you will need to contact Bedford Borough Council to complete the Local Authority admissions process, as this is only available directly from their Admissions Service.  The closing date for receipt of applications academic year is usually early January (details below). If you are looking at this information after this closing date please contact the School Admissions Service General Enquiries Line on (01234) 718120.

Joining Us at Other Times

If you move into the area during the school year or simply wish to change your child's school, you will need to complete an In-Year Application Form.  Before completing the application form please read the In-Year Admissions Guidance Notes  which explains the arrangements for applying for a school place.

Once your place at Turvey Lower School is confirmed we will send you our ‘Welcome Pack’ which contains all the information that you will need, consent forms and contact details and so forth.

If you prefer to meet us in person before making the decision to enrol, we invite visits to the school by appointment through the School Office – 01234 881259.

We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
