    Reception Class Admissions

    Children are admitted to mainstream school (i.e. the Reception Class) once a year in the Autumn Term before their 5th birthday.  Parents will receive a letter/application form from Northumberland County Council, via the nursery the child attends, approximately a year before the child is due to start and these forms must be returned to the school or Northumberland County Council by a date set in January.  Parents can apply online also if this is preferable, please click this link.

    Places will be allocated in the summer term, and parents will be notified in due course about the availability or otherwise of a place in the Reception Class.  Parents who are unsuccessful in gaining admission for their child to the school of their choice have the right to appeal to the Local Education Authority.  The procedure for this can be obtained from Northumberland County Council, tel. 0345 6006400

    Children and their parents make an introductory visit at the end of the summer term before their admission, when the children spend half a day with their teacher.  There is also a short meeting between the Headteacher, teaching staff and parents, where there is the opportunity to ask questions.

    Pupils are admitted to our Reception class in accordance with the Local Authority’s Admissions Policy below:-
