The admission of pupils is the responsibility of the Headteacher and the Governing Body. Pupils are admitted in accordance with the permitted intake number for the year group, which are 60 children. The Local Education Authority must agree to any change in the school’s intake. Parents are invited to visit the school prior to children's' admission. Arrangements will be made for a mutually convenient time.


Admissions to Nursery

For Nursery admissions, please contact the school office and let them know that you want a place. They will take basic details from you. For planned admissions at the start of a school year, the school will then contact you, in the months before admission, to make arrangements for your place. For in-year admissions, please contact the school office to discuss the availability of places.


Planned Admissions to Reception

Children are currently admitted to the Reception Classes in the Autumn term of the school year during which their fifth birthday falls. Parents MUST apply directly to the Local Education Authority for a Reception place, even if they already attend the school's Nursery. You can apply at Manchester City Council Reception Admissions September 2022

Please note: Children attending the Nursery do not have an automatic right of admission to the Reception Class.
