Reception Admissions

Admissions are dealt with centrally by the local authority. Applications should be made on 

For more information please visit the Derbyshire County Council website at:


If you do not have internet access, please telephone 01629 537499 for advice. Admissions are now on a single point entry. This means that if you child is due to reach the age of 5 during the academic year, they are eligible to start in September.


Our Pupil Admission Number (PAN) for Reception is 20 but from September 2021 we can accept up to 30.


Once a child has been allocated a place, arrangements will be made for them to have a couple of taster sessions in school. This helps them settle into school routines more comfortably. If the authority refuses an application, parents have the right to appeal and details will be given for this procedure. 


Parents who are considering sending their child to our school are more welcome to visit the school at any mutually convenient time to have a look around and talk with the Headteacher. It is extremely helpful to know in advance of any children who may be joining our school and Expression of Interest forms are available from our school office.
