Year 3 Admissions
All Year 2 pupils moving from Oakwood or another infant school will need to apply for a place at Greenfields Junior School through Hampshire School Admissions by the date given.
At Green Oaks, we offer you the opportunity to attend our Open Morning at Greenfields in the Autumn Term. This has now passed for parents of children starting Year 3 in September 2024.
If your child is due to start Year 3 in September 2024 and you would like to visit Greenfields for a tour, please call the school office on 01252 843822 or email email@example.com to arrange.
Transition to Greenfields
At Greenfields we know how important it is for your child to feel safe, happy and secure when they make the transition from infants to juniors.
We, therefore, work hard to build early relationships and start to get to know your child as soon as possible. As part of the Green Oaks Federation, our Oakwood children will have had the opportunity to visit Greenfields for shared events and will already be familiar with the school. Once you have accepted a place at Greenfields your child will be invited into school in the summer term to take part in our full transition programme.
|w/c 12th June 2023||Welcome!||The transition conversation starts! Mr May presents a Welcome to Greenfields short assembly to each Year 2 class with the help of some Year 3's.|

There will also be a chance to meet the Leadership Team and find out more about the plans for the school.|
We also have an additional transition programme for any of our children who we know may find the move from Oakwood to Greenfields challenging. These visits take place in small groups and are supported by our Green Oaks Inclusion team.
We very much look forward to welcoming you to Greenfields and hope that you and your family form a long and happy association with us.
Applying for a school place in-year
This is when a child needs a school place outside of the usual transfer times, for example because of a house move or a change of school.
All in-year admissions will need to be made through a formal application through Hampshire School Admissions.
If you are interested in joining Greenfields in-year you are welcome to contact us to make an appointment to come and look around. We offer children who are joining us the opportunity to visit their new class before starting full time. This gives you and your child the chance to meet the class teacher and start to make new friends before starting at Greenfields.
We look forward to welcoming you to Greenfields and the Green Oaks Federation soon.
