Full-time admission to Primary School in 2019/2020 school year


To all parents/carers of pre-school children who were born between 1st Sept 2014 and 31st Aug 2015. It is very important that you make an application for a full-time school place for your child for September 2018 by the closing date of Monday 15th January 2019. 


We recommend that parents/carers apply online at www.suffolk.gov.uk/admissions.  This process is secure, convenient and easy to use. Pupils will not be allocated a school place automatically.  All parents/carers must apply for a place, even if their child is already attending a nursery class in an infant or primary school, a pre-school or a children's centre next to a school site.


Any applications made after the closing date will not be considered until those received by the closing date have been processed. Places may be limited by this time and it could be necessary for the Admissions team to offer an alternative school to the one applied for, even if the parents/carers have applied for their catchment area school.

Below you will find a wide range of information on how and when to apply for a School place for your child/children. If you prefer to fill in a paper copy of the form, these are available at the School Office.


If you would like to book a visit to have a look around the School, please call us on 01473 683932 to arrange a time.
