Admissions

Admission arrangements

 

As an Inclusive school, children will be admitted to school on a full-time basis at age 7 years, without any reference to race, gender, sexuality, faith, ability or aptitude, from the “current catchment” area served by the school. The maximum number of new children, at age 7, to be admitted during the school year has been set at 70 by the Local Authority and the school’s Governing Body.

 

As a junior school we take children from Y3 - Y6. The majority of our children transfer from the infant school next door by filling in our application form during the Spring term prior to a September admission. Our admission number is 70.  Places are allocated in order of the date in which they were received with priority places given to our feeder school, Ribbleton Avenue Infant School.

 

If you wish to apply for a place in our school please call into the school office where a member of staff will provide you with all the information that you need.

 

If we receive more than 70 applications we refer to our Admissions Policy, as seen below.
