Admissions to our school

Admission to the Reception Class for September 2018
Offers of a school place for Reception for September 2018 will be made by the governing body. The Local Authority will convey the offer of a school place on our behalf on national offer day. Admissions to our school for 2018-19 will be determined by our Admissions Policy for 2018-19.
Parents of four year old children may obtain application details from the Local Authority online at:

Applications need to be submitted to the Local Authority by January for admission the following September. Parents are notified of their child‘s school allocation in April. Please check with the Local Authority for precise dates.

Each year, we hold an informal Open Afternoon for prospective parents whose children are due to start school in Reception in the following September. We will be pleased to welcome you on Tuesday 28th November 2017 between 1.30 – 3.00pm.

As this cohort of prospective children across the local area is much smaller than previous years, there will be fewer families applying. This means parents are highly likely to be allocated their first choice, even if they live out of the school’s catchment area. So please do come and visit us, and consider making Primrose Lane your first choice of primary school.
If demand does exceed the number of places available, the Local Authority will apply the following criteria to allocate places: Special Educational Need, siblings already in school and distance from home to school.

Admission to other year groups
Admission to other year groups is controlled by the Headteacher and Governing body, subject to available places, and is monitored by the Local Authority. The application form to use when applying for a school place in other year groups can be downloaded here: In Year Common Preference form and a copy of our current Admissions Policy can be downloaded here: Admissions Policy 2017-18

Looking further ahead, admissions to school for 2017-18 will be determined by our Admissions Policy for 2017-18, which can be found here:
