The Local Authority coordinates admissions to all Primary, Infant and Junior Schools in Derbyshire.  Essentially the Authority acts as a ‘clearing house’ for all admissions and enables parents to express a preference for one, two or three schools and to place those preferences in rank order.  A guide to applying for a school place is available here.

Parents can apply for a school place online via Derbyshire School Admissions, by telephone on Call Derbyshire 08456 058058 or via the school office.

Applications for a Primary school place in September closed at Midnight on 15/01/2017. If you have not yet applied for a place for your child, you should make your application through the late online application facility available at  which is available from 9:00am on 23/01/2017 until midnight on 31/08/2017. Thereafter your application should be made through the In-Year application facility in the Changing Schools Section.

All applications will now be processed. The results of your application will not be available until 18th April 2017 at 09:30am Offer Day.

Our published admissions number (PAN) for 2017-2018 is 20 pupils.

Parents are welcome to contact the school and Miss Kirk is very happy to show you round and answer any questions.

The majority of our children transfer to Crich Junior School.  We have established transfer procedures between our two schools. 

These include:-

  • Discussions between teaching staff of both schools.
  • Children’s visits.
  • Parent’s meetings.

At the end of the Junior School, children usually move to one of the following three secondary schools.
