Admission to a Primary Reception class for September 2024

Please call into school if you have any concerns about admissions – we will try to help.

In the event that our classes are over subscribed, the following ‘priority’ criteria will apply :

  1. Those with special educational needs
  2. Children looked after by Social Services
  3. Those living within the area
  4. Those who already have siblings in our school
  5. Medical, social or compassionate reasons
  6. Other applications

 Please be aware that a place in our Nursery classes does not guarantee a place in our Reception classes. Parents must apply to the Reception classes separately – please see/telephone one of our admin team if you have any questions about this.
