We are always pleased to show new or prospective parents around our school and answer any further questions you may have. Please contact school via telephone to arrange a mutually convenient time. Please note: at present, visits may be undertaken in a Covid-secure way, or via remote methods if preferred, following Government and Durham Local Authority guidance.
Children are admitted into our Reception class in the September following their fourth birthday. All applications and admission decisions are made by County Hall. Visit the Durham County Council website for information regarding the school admission process and primary school admissions. To appeal against an admission decision visit: School admissions-appeals.
Applying for a school place if your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan
Children and young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan follow a different admission and transfer process for a new school. Please continue to complete Durham County Council’s parental preference form, as part of the admission process to a new school. You continue to have a right to request a particular school and this will be considered alongside the information that we have about your child’s special educational needs. The information would have been provided as part of the Education, Health and Care assessment or following the review meeting.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
