Admissions Arrangements

Our School has a Nursery as well as provision for primary school age children. On this page you will find details of both our Nursery admissions criteria and our Reception admissions criteria.

Nursery Admissions Arrangements

Our Reception Admissions Arrangements are detailed below:

The Trafford Local Authority policy decides admissions to its maintained schools.

Children are required by law to attend school from the start of the term following their fifth birthday. In Trafford, children generally start school earlier.

Places are allocated earlier but start in September at the beginning of the school year during which the child will be 5 years old, i.e. between 1st September and 31st August.

All primary schools have a zone/priority catchment area. Parents who wish their child to attend a primary school other than the zoned one should write to their Local Education Authority.

The following criteria will be applied by the LA if a community school has more applications than places available.

1) Looked after children.

2) Children who live in the catchment area with a sibling attending the school at the time of the child’s proposed admission.

3) Children who live in the catchment area.

4) Children who live outside the catchment area, with a sibling attending the school at the time of the child’s proposed admission.

5) Children who live nearest to the school, calculated in a direct straight line from home to school.

Application for places in this school should be made to School Admissions, 4th Floor, Waterside House, Waterside, Sale, M33 7ZF. Further information is available on http://www.trafford.gov.uk/educationand learning/schooladmissions
