School Admissions

Please let the school know of your interest - come and see why we are so proud of our school for yourself!

The visit will (wherever possible) be conducted by the Headteacher and on a 1:1 basis.  We currently have enhanced measures in place to mitigate the risk of Covid-19 to all children, staff and families therefore school tours for September 2022 intake will be conducted after school hours. We always enjoy meeting new families so please give us a ring and book a tour to see all we have to offer.

 The decision regarding an allocation of a place for the Reception cohort for your child will be notified to you in writing by Lincolnshire County Council.


We admit children who have already turned four years old into the Pre-Reception part of our Reception class in January and April. Parents may apply for a January or April place for their child by emailing and asking for a Pre-Reception application. 

Applications for a place to start in January must be at the school by 30th October.

Applications for a place to start in April must be at the school by 30th January.


Governors meet at the end of October and the end of January to decide which children will be offered a place.  In the case of oversubscription, the Governing Body use the Admission Policy to allocate places. 



Parents must apply to Lincolnshire County Council for a place for their child to start school in the Reception cohort in September.  This is in addition to applying for a place in the Pre-Reception cohort.

***A place in our Pre-reception class does not guarantee a place in Reception***
