Admissions Arrangements

The Local Authority is the ‘Admissions Authority’ for our school. The regulations for entry to each school, where the Admissions Authority is the LA, are published each year. Parents can receive a copy of these regulations directly from the LA. Please use the following link:

The planned maximum number of children per year group in our school is 30. In exceptional cases the LA can increase intake numbers depending on specific circumstances. Where there are more children seeking admission than there are places available, names are put onto a waiting list. These are our criteria for admission:

  • Exceptional medical or social reasons
  • Brothers or sisters already in attendance
  • Geographical proximity

Children are normally admitted for the first time in the September of the school year in which they become five years of age. When joining our Reception class, we have a well-established induction procedure to ease transition into school life – it is important to us that your child settles quickly and feels happy and secure.

Parents and carers who are considering applying for a place are welcome to visit the school by appointment.
