Nursery admissions:

The nursery is able to accommodate 60 children in full time places.  Names for places are taken after a child’s second birthday. Children are admitted in the September after their third birthday. The criteria for allocating places are the same as the Local Authority (LA) for reception places.  

School admissions (i.e. Reception Class):

The standard intake number for the school is 90.
Children are admitted into the Reception class via a single intake in September. Children whose fifth birthday falls between September 1st and the end of August commence in September.

All admissions for school are administered by the Local Authority, not the school. You can visit the Local Authority website by clicking HERE.


It is essential that parents/carers complete the admission pack for a school place when received from the LA and return it to the LA by the date stated.  This form must be completed and returned even if the child is a sibling and even if the child is already in our nursery.  

Please see the Council’s admissions rules for primary schools from September 2016.
