Admission to School - In Doncaster, schools are arranged into ‘pyramids’ based upon a number of primary schools linked with a secondary school. The area which a school serves, is referred to as a ‘catchment area’. Each address in Doncaster has a catchment area school and most parents apply for their children to attend their local school.Our school admissions process is co-ordinated through the local Authority. Only they can decide who is eligible for a place in our school. Local Authority contact details are as follows:
Rising 3's - If certain criteria is met you may be eligible for a golden ticket. This will be sent from the Local authority and will enable your child to start with us the term before their third birthday (providing places are available).
For further information, please see the following links:
Nursery - Children are usually admitted to a school nursery in the September following their third birthday. Admission forms can be acquired directly from Doncaster council or on the following website – http://www.doncaster.gov.uk/services/schools/nursery-admissions
You will have to apply again for a place in our reception class as attending our nursery class does not automatically guarantee your child a place.
Parents will receive either an application form or letter through the post informing them how to apply for a reception class place. More information can be found on the following webpage - http://www.doncaster.gov.uk/services/schools/primary-admissions
After Year 6 your child will move on to Secondary school and Doncaster Council Schools Admissions will send a letter or form through the post when it is time to apply. This will give you full instructions on how to apply for a secondary place for your child. All applications have to be made online. They will also advise you of the application completion date.
