Admissions September 2020


Primary school places will be announced on Thursday 16 April.

Dear Parents/Carers,

If your child has been allocated a place at our school, I would like to warmly welcome you to our Rufford school family.

School is currently closed due to the Government guidance on the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and as a result it is difficult to predict when school will open again; however, please rest assured that we continue to work towards your child starting school with us. We will be in touch with you directly with further details as information becomes available.

Parents who applied for a place at school for their child and were not offered a place, have the right to appeal this decision. I would urge any parents who find themselves in this position to contact me for further advice.

Please contact me by email: 

Kind regards 

A. R. Farrington
