Admissions Information

Choosing a primary school for your child is an important step. We welcome any prospective families to visit our school but formal applications are made through the Lincolnshire County Council's School Admissions. To try and make the process as simple as possible we have gathered some key information and links to help you.

If your child was born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016 they will be due to start Foundation Stage in September 2020.

Admission Criteria

For more information on our admission criteria, see ourAdmissions Policy.

The preferred method for applying for a Reception place is online. Apply for a place online here. You can also apply by telephoning Lincolnshire County Council Customer Service Centre on 01522 782030. 

If you need to apply for a place outside of the normal admissions dates, perhaps because you have just moved to the area, then you should use the process described on the Lincolnshire County Council 'Midyear admissions' pages.

We hold an open day in the Autumn term, where parents are shown around the school by our pupils. They are a great chance to look around the school and talk to the children during a normal school day.

Parent Handbook

Our Parent Handbook is full of useful information about our school including a typical school day, uniform requirements, clubs, after school provision and much, much more.
