We are committed to meeting the needs of all children including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. We would ask parents to discuss the identified needs with the school prior to starting so that appropriate intervention and support can be planned and implemented. Advice from the LA or other agencies may be requested to ensure any the school can meet any needs appropriately.
We have one intake into Reception in September and our admissions number is currently 25. A child will be admitted into school when their 5th birthday falls between 1st September and 31st August; they will start school in the September of that year.
In the Autumn Term, Durham County Council provides information about how parents can apply for school using their online service. This information is passed on to all nursery aged children. It is the responsibility of the parents/carers to ensure that applications are made online or they must request a paper application from The Admissions Team at Durham County Council which is to be returned directly to them before the January deadline.
Full details of the admission arrangements can be found in the Primary and Secondary Admissions brochure produced by Durham County Council and further information can be found in the school Admissions Policy that can be found in the School Policies section of our website.
If you would like to discuss further or make an appointment please contact the school.
Applying for a school place if your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan or a Statement of SEN
Children and young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan (or Statement of Special Education Needs) follow a different admission and transfer process for a new school. Please continue to complete Durham County Council’s parental preference form, as part of the admission process to a new school. You continue to have a right to request a particular school and this will be considered alongside the information that we have about your child’s special educational needs. The information would have been provided as part of the Education, Health and Care assessment or following the review meeting.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
