Children are allocated places in accordance with the Authority’s admissions policy. This means that priority is given to children who have brothers or sisters at the school. The proximity of the child’s home address to the school is the second consideration.

At present, the school has a nursery class, reception and two infant (Key Stage 1) and four junior (Key Stage 2) classes. The school’s existing admission limit is 35. Nursery and Reception children are taught in the Early Years Foundation Stage Unit.

Parents are informed of the class organisation in the Summer Term when staffing levels and pupil numbers are known.

Please visit the council admissions page for an online admissions form.
