Admission Arrangements

Reception Admissions

The School’s Student Admission Number (the maximum intake each year) is 70. The school has a defined ‘catchment area’, and students living within it have priority for admissions. Parents of students attending schools beyond this ‘catchment area’ and beyond the Local Authority boundary can still choose this school. The Local Authority allocates places on a range of criteria such as distance, siblings, EHCPs.

Where a school application is unsuccessful, parents can appeal to the Local Authority. Allocation of places are the responsibility of the Local Authority and not the school.

Rotherham Council’s school application information can be found on their website. Within the website search for ‘primary application’ or follow this link.

For more details please read the school’s Admissions Policy which can be found on the Trust website –

Nursery Admissions

Registration is for children due to enter Part time education in September.

Part time places will be for free 15 hours, offered as either:

  • 5 x 3hr morning sessions (8:50-11:50am)
  • 5 x 3hr afternoon sessions (12:00-3:00pm)
  • 2 full days and one half day

We will also be offering 30 hour funding for F1 children who are eligible which can be allocated according to your requirements.

School also runs breakfast club (8:00-8:40) and Woodlies after school club (3:10 – 4:30 or 3:10 – 5:45) which can be used as part of your 30 hour funding. (Please visit our Breakfast club and Woodlies page for price information).

When returning the completed forms we will need to take a copy of your child’s FULL Birth Certificate.

Please return completed forms to the infant reception which is located in our infant building next to the school car park at the bottom of the drive. We ask that you park on Upper Wortley road, and follow the signs for the infant building, as there is no visitors parking in school.

If your child is 3 between 1st September and 31st December we have a January admissions intake, school will contact you mid October to see if you would be interested in taking up this option.

If you have any questions or need more information on admissions please contact Mrs Dawson in the school office.
