Admission to and from Primary School September 2023/24

Nursery

Our plan for our new nursery pupils who are starting this September is that Mrs. Mitchell-Craig and Mrs. Clegg will invite families in to meet them and the team during the first week beginning September 4th. She will be able to give you all the information you will need and can answer any questions you may have. Pupils will then have a staggered entry from the week beginning September 11th. We anticipate all Nursery pupils will have started school by the end of September.

Reception

Your child will be starting in the reception class in September 2024.  You now have the opportunity to express a preference for your preferred school.  Please apply on-line at www.flintshire.gov.uk/schooladmissions and ensure you receive a reference number when the application is submitted.  This reference number can then be quoted in the event of a query and also ensures the application has been submitted.  If you do not receive a confirmation e-mail please re-submit.

In order to assist you with your decision, all schools will produce a prospectus giving full details of the school.

The Local Authority provides a ‘Guide to Education Services 2023’ detailing the admissions procedure.  A list of all schools is also available.

The ‘Guide to Education Services 2023’ is available on the Flintshire website, www.flintshire.gov.uk/schooladmissions.  You will also find a list of frequently asked questions to assist in making your application.

It is important that you read the ‘Guide to Education Services 2023’ before completing your preference form so that you are aware of the over subscription criteria and the school transport policy.
