Reception Class Admissions

Reception Places

If your child was born between 1 September 2011 and 31 August 2012, admission to Primary/Infant school is September 2016. Our school’s planned admission number (PAN) for each year group from Reception to Year 6 is 60 pupils.

Applications for primary school places are managed by Gateshead Council. Applications can be made online. The council have produced some information documents explaining the procedures, these can be accessed here:

Places will be allocated in the summer term, and parents will be notified in due course about the availability or otherwise of a place in the Reception Class.  Parents who are unsuccessful in gaining admission for their child to the school of their choice have the right to appeal to the Local Education Authority.  The procedure for this can be obtained from the Civic Centre in Gateshead, tel. 4333000.

Children and their parents make an introductory visit at the end of the summer term before their admission, when the children spend half a day with their teacher.  There is also a short meeting between the Headteacher, teaching staff and parents, where there is the opportunity to ask questions.

Pupils are admitted to our Reception class in accordance with the Local Authority’s Admissions Policy below:-
