Information for Reception Intake 2023
Applications for entry in to Reception Class should be made online at www.gateshead.gov.uk.schooladmissions a year prior to your child's 5th Birthday. Interested parents and families are invited to attend planned open mornings prior to the deadline for admissions which will provide you with an opportunity to see our wonderful school in full swing and to ask any questions you may have. We maintain a 'registration of interest' to give us an indication of admissions numbers each year; if you wish to register your interest in a school place, or indeed have any other questions or queries regarding the admissions process, please just get in touch – we’ll be more than happy to help.
An application can be made for a place for a child at any time outside the admission round and the child will be admitted where there are available places. An application should be made to the school by completing the in-year admissions application form found here: www.gateshead.gov.uk/article/2799/In-year-transfers
Where there are places available but more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria, as set out in the admission arrangements for the current academic year will be applied (see below). Parents are advised to read the admission arrangements carefully before making their application.
If there are no places available, the child will be added to the waiting list. Please see the admission arrangements for more details.
You will be advised of the outcome of your application in writing as soon as possible. Applicants must be informed of the outcome of their application within 15 school days of receipt, but the aim is to notify applicants of the outcome of their application within 10 school days of receipt.
You have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel if your application is unsuccessful.
If you have any questions in relation to in-year admissions please contact Mrs Theresa Noble (School Business Manager).
You may also wish to discuss in-year applications with the local authority: The School Admissions Team, Dryden Centre, Evistones Road, Gateshead NE9 5UR Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Telephone: 0191 433 8589.
