Admissions Information

Admissions policy and procedures

 

As a voluntary controlled/community school, Lancashire County Council has responsibility for admissions to school. The age your child will start school depends on when their birthday is. Children can start school from the September after their fourth birthday. However, by law children don't have to start school until the beginning of the term after their fifth birthday.

 

These are the dates that children would usually start school and when to apply for a school place:
