Applications for Part Time Places

The admissions to the Early Years Foundation Stage 1 are managed by the Headteacher at the school address. 
Parents are invited to register their child by placing his/her name on a “waiting list”. To do this you will need to call at the school office with the child's birth certificate. Admissions are made from this list, using the oversubscription criteria in this document (Click here). The offer of a place in the Early Years Department does not guarantee admission to the school at the point of Primary School admission. The Leicester City Council Admissions Policy applies at this point.
