When can my child start school?

If you wish, you can enrol your child in nursery class in the September following their 3rd birthday. Having a place in a nursery class at a particular school does not guarantee your child a place in a reception class at that school, and you will need to make a new application for reception class.

You can enrol your child in a reception class, at either an infant or primary school, in the September following the child’s 4th birthday.

By law, you must enrol your child at school by the term following their 5th birthday.

For further information about how to apply for a place at Ysgol Melyd, either contact the school office and/ or visit Denbighshire County Council’s Admissions page. On this site you will be able to access details regarding when you can apply and deadlines, along with links to apply online for a place at school or downloadable application forms.

On admission to school,  parents/guardians are respectfully requested to complete an admission form as required by government legislation. This form will provide the school with parental information together with an emergency telephone number, where they can be contacted in case of illness or accident to the child, or due to the school having closed for reasons beyond our control.
