Admission Arrangements

Oldham Local Authority is the admissions body for places in Reception class in the September following their fourth birthday. Parents need to complete an online application and send this to the Local Authority as part of their coordinated admission arrangements.

If the school receives more applications than there are places available then the criteria to allocate places is as follows:

1. Children with exceptional SEN, medical or social need.

2. Children with siblings in attendance at school.

3. Geographical proximity to the school.

Parents are advised to note that Reception class places are allocated by the Local Authority and not the school.

Pre - school visits and meetings are arranged for parents and children before starting school.
