Admission Information

Admissions Arrangements


As an academy we are own admissions authority but have continued to take part in the Lincolnshire County Council's co-ordinated scheme for admissions.   


The published admissions number for our school is 20 pupils per year group, with pupils being admitted in the September after his/her fourth birthday.   


Only one application needs to be made which can also be completed online. The online application system opens on Monday 16th November 2020 and closes at 12 noon on the Friday 15th January 2021.  Details of the admissions’ process can be found on Lincolnshire’s website:  You are able to view your offered school online on Friday 16th April 2021, or a letter will be sent to you on this date.  During the autumn term we host  open evenings to provide prospective parents with the opportunity to visit our school and to see our school in action.  In addition, the Head Teacher is happy to arrange individual visits.    


In accordance with the 1996 Education Act, the allocation of school places for children with a statement of special educational needs will take place first.  Remaining pupils are then allocated the remaining places in accordance with our Admission Policy, as outlined below.  

A. The child is in the care of the local authority or had previously been in care. 
B. There is a brother or sister on roll at the school at the time of application. 
C. The school is the nearest one to the home address, as defined in note. 
D. The distance from the home to the school, priority will be given to the child living closest the school (as defined in our policy). 


We are very aware that the education of our pupils is a shared responsibility. We aim to ensure this from the start of your child’s school career by inviting your child to school on several half days in the term prior to which they start.  These are opportunities for both parents/carers and our new Reception pupils to become familiar with the school routine, the building, the teachers and the children.  An information session is also held in the summer term, outlining the transition arrangements.
