Starting School at the start of the Reception Year (EYFS)
Your child can start in the Reception year (EYFS) from September if they will have their 5th birthday between 1st September that year and 31st August the following year. (So they turn 5 in their first year at school.)
Applying for a place for Reception in a Lancashire school is now done online. Stubbins School is bound by the admissions criteria set by Lancashire. Any children who live in a neighbouring authority must apply through their own authority’s system. The neighbouring authority will then liaise with Lancashire. The Lancashire School Admissioins website is: http://www.lancashire.gov.uk/children-education-families/schools/apply-for-a-school-place.aspx
More information on this process can be found on the links below
Joining or school after the start of the Reception Year.
Lancashire County Council continue to deal with admissions to the Reception year until the end of December.
If your child wishes to join our school in any year group after this time, the procedure is as follows:
1. Telephone us at school, and if there is an available place we can admit your child.
2. If there is no available place, you may contact Lancashire who will advise you on the appeals process.
Please note that EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2 classes are usually restricted to 30 pupils, except in certain circumstances.
