Admissions

If you are interested in sending your child to our school, we highly recommend you make an appointment to visit. All admissions are co-ordinated by Lincolnshire County Council and our Pupil Admission Number (PAN) for each year group is 50 pupils.

Please note that Lincolnshire County Council have been in consultation to reduce our PAN to 40 from September 2021. The reduction was at the request of our governing body to enable us to organise ourselves more effectively while complying with infant class size regulations.  

For new Reception intakes, parents are asked to complete their application online via the Lincolnshire County Council website. Applications are made in January and offers are available in April. You can download our full Admissions Policy but for your information, where we are oversubscribed the following selection criteria will be applied:

A.    The child is in the care of the local authority or had previously been in care.

B.    There is a brother or sister at the school who will still be attending when the child is due to start.

C.     The school is the nearest one to the home address.

D.    The distance from the home to the school, priority will be given to the child living closest the school.

For all other admissions, complete an online Midyear Application form on the Lincolnshire County Council website. The School Admissions Team will only consider mid-year applications where an application form has been completed. Once the Admissions Team receive an application, the form will be sent electronically to us and if we can admit your child, the School Admission Team will write an offer letter and give you a start date. This is usually 7 days hence but generally we can agree to the child starting earlier. If we cannot offer a place, because we have reached our Pupil Admission Number for example, the Admissions Team will contact other schools in the area to find the nearest place available.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the School Admission Team on 01522 782030 or email midyearadmissions@lincolnshire.gov.uk
