We are very pleased that our academy’s enrolment figure is so positive and we are full in many year groups now. Children who attend our Nursery must apply for a place in the Reception class via the Local Authority, in line with the published policy. We cannot guarantee a place in the Reception class so urge you to submit your application on time and always state the three schools you would like your child to attend in order of preference. If you do not receive a place in the Reception class, you have the right to appeal by completing the forms sent to you from the Local Authority.
Parents of children born between 01/09/2016 and 31/08/2017 must make an application for their child to start in Reception in September 2021 even if they attend the Nursery.
The CLOSING DATE for on-time Primary School applications is 15th JANUARY 2021 and the Offer date for on-time applications is 16th April 2021.
