More Opportunities for School Places at Eldwick Primary

2014 / 15

Nursery Places 2014

* Updated Feb 2014

We have allocated places in Nursery for 2014 but we still have some spaces available.

People always think we are full and that is often the case. There are odd years however, like 2014, when the birth rate across the district is lower. This year we have been able to accommodate all the people on the list and some of them are from further afield than usual.

I am presuming that all families in school who have younger children have already been allocated a place. Please do not presume we know you have another child or you might miss the opportunity for a Nursery place.

Please advertise the fact that we currently have places remaining in Nursery for September 2014 and encourage people to contact the School Office.  


Reception Places 2014 and 2015

We anticipate a high demand for places for Reception in September 2014. This will to some extent be addressed by our expansion to an intake of 75 pupils into Reception from that date.

For September 2015, the numbers of births would suggest that demand would be lower, so obviously I am keen to encourage families to come and look round school and not to make the automatic assumption that we will be full for that year.

This is the admission procedure for the school:

  • Siblings (the older child must be in main school at the point of admission) in priority area one
  • Siblings (the older child must be in main school at the point of admission) in priority area two
  • All other siblings (see above) who live outside the priority area
  • Children living in priority area one
  • Children living in priority area two
  • All other children prioritised by which one lives closest to the school’s main entrance
