If you wish to send your child to Belswains you are advised to contact the school office (01442 264324) to make an appointment to look around the school. This offers the opportunity to see the school at work, meet the Headteacher and discuss how the school can work with you to provide the best education for your child.
Our admission number throughout the school is currently 30 children per year group. However from September 2019 the Reception Class admission number increased to 60 ( two form entry), and this will be the case in all future years. Hence eventually, as the Reception classes move up, the school will become a two form entry school with 60 children per year group. Please see link below to read our Admissions Policy :
