School Admissions

Admissions in to Reception (yellow class) for September 2018

Our school adheres to Northumberland County Council's admissions policy as explained in the primary school admissions handbook.

Most children who attend our Nursery (orange class) go on to attend our Reception class (yellow class).  Children who attend our Nursery are not guaranteed a place in our Reception class; parents need to apply for a place in Reception.

Parents of children born between 01 September 2013 and 31 August 2014, who will be aged four by 31 August 2018 can apply for a place in Reception in September 2018.

Parents who want to apply online will need access to an e-mail account, must be resident in Northumberland and your child's date of birth falls between 01 September 2013 and 31 August 2014.

This Online admissions portal will be open on 01 November 2017 and will close on 15 January 2018.  Parents will be notified of the outcome of their application for school places on the 15 April 2018.

If you live outside Northumberland you should ask your home local authority (the council to which you pay your Council Tax) for an application form, and they will co-ordinate your application with the Northumberland’s School Admissions Team.  Your home local authority will let you know if your application has been successful.

Our Early Years lead is Mrs Murdy.  Staff in Early Years work together closely throughout the year on planning and assessment of the children in the Foundation Stage Unit.  This makes for a smooth transition from Nursery in to Reception.

Parents of children in Nursery will be offered the opportunity to attend a Reception new starters meeting in the summer term before they are due to start in Reception.

Admission to Year 5 in middle school for September 2018

Parents of children born between 01 September 2008 and 31 August 2009, who will be aged nine by 31 August 2018 can apply for a place in Year 5 at middle school in September 2018.

In year transfer requests

Sometimes we receive requests for a place in our school from parents whose child currently attends another school in Northumberland.  We are unable to deal with these requests at school.  Parents should contact Northumberland County Council and request an In Term Admissions Transfer Form.  This form should be completed and returned to the School Admissions Team.  They will co-ordinate your application.

We recommend that you contact the school office and make an appointment to come and look around school before completing an In Term Admissions Transfer Form.

If you live outside of Northumberland you must complete an application form for the Local Authority in which you live and your home authority will co-ordinate with us on your behalf.

In Term Admissions Transfer Forms which are co-ordinated by Northumberland County Council or your home local authority are dealt with as soon as possible and certainly in three school weeks.
