Admission Arrangements

The published admission number is 30 children per year. All applications for the Reception year(Foundation 2) will be considered in accordance with the admissions criteria, set out below in the admissions policy.

All children who are allocated a place will be admitted on the first day of the autumn term.

Attendance in our early years (Foundation 1) at the school does not automatically guarantee a Reception (Foundation 2) place.

Applications must be made on the Common Application Form.  The school requires additional information not contained on the common application form.  This additional information is needed to place your application in the correct priority of admission category.

The offer of a school place will be made by the Local Authority to all parents on the ‘offer day’ set out in the co-ordinated scheme.

The school operates a Waiting List for its intake year group in partnership with the Nottinghamshire Local Authority.  This is kept and prioritised following the oversubscription criteria until the end of the autumn term.

Children who have a Statement of Special Educational Needs and Educational Health Care Plan that names the school will be admitted.
