Our school admission number is 30, which means that when 30 children are on roll in a class we are full. Any further applications must go to appeal through Bury council (please find the link at the bottom of the page).
In Nursery, we can have a maximum of 26 children in each session (morning and afternoon)
In Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 there is a statutory maximum of 30 children in each class.
What are the Admission Criteria?
For Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools, the admission criteria are the same as in previous years. This means that we will allocate places in the following order:
- Children with a Statement of Special Educational Needs which names the school;
- Children in the Care of a Local Authority;
- Children with a medical or psychological reason for attending that school;
- Children with elder siblings attending the school;
- Proximity – nearness to the school.
