Applying and Admissions

Our school has a 52 place Nursery. That means that there are 26 places available for children to attend in the morning and a further 26 places available for children to attend in the afternoon. From September 2017, we will be offering parents the opportunity to take their 15 hours in a variety of ways - including mornings, afternoons or full days.  Parents can also pay for lunchtime and additional sessions.  Please contact the school for more information.


We are permitted to have 30 children in reception, year 1, year 2 and year 3. This will increase so that we are a single form entry primary school by the academic year 2018 - 19.


At present, in years 4-6 we have a pupil admission number of 20 - this means that there is mixed age teaching in 2 classes - Newstead class consists of children in Years 4 & 5 and Wollaton Class consists of children in Years 5 & 6. 

Applying to our Nursery


This process is dealt with by school directly through our school office and member of staff in charge of admissions. You can apply to nursery at any time up to when the child is due to start school. Nursery forms are available from the school entrance hall. Alternatively you can download one below:

Once you have filled the application form in, our member of staff with the responsibility for admissions will calculate the date that your child is due to start. We will then inform you whether your child has a place one school term before the due start date. Prior to your child beginning in nursery we will endeavour for them to have a 'getting to know' session. In most cases we will also carry out a home visit.

 Applying to Full Time School (Reception year)


This process is called first admissions and is dealt with directly by the local authority. You will receive a letter directly to your home address in the November of the school year prior to the next academic year when your child will become five.  Find out more about when and how to apply.


Once you have accepted the place then school will contact you with some transition arrangements.
