Children start full-time primary school in the academic year in which they turn five years of age. The first class they will attend is called the reception class. The following years’ classes are called Year 1 through to Year 6.
Parents will be invited by the Local Authority (Middlesbrough Council) to submit their preferences for the Primary School they would like their child to attend.
Your child will NOT be automatically allocated a school place you will have to apply for a place.
Parents are invited to submit a preference for a place in a primary school reception class in the November of the academic year in which the child turns four.
If your child currently attends our school Nursery, we will forward your child’s details to the Local Authority to enable them to send out your application pack. Please note that a place in our school Nursery does not guarantee a place in our School, also you must apply for a reception place even if your child already attends the schools Nursery.
If your child is not attending a school nursery, you need to contact the Admissions Team to supply them with your child’s details in November so an application pack can be issued.
Admission to Years 1-6
If you have moved address and wish to apply for a school place near to your home address, please contact the Admissions Team.
From time to time there may be other reasons for a parent wishing to transfer their child’s school. In the first instance, parents should consult with the Head Teacher of the child’s present school with a view to resolving any problems.
Where a transfer involves admission to a community school, the Local Authority will consider the request on its merits. Priority for admission when considering such requests will be given to pupils who meet the admissions criteria of the school concerned. The criteria are set out in the Primary and Secondary Education in Middlesbrough booklet.
