Primary School Admissions

Your helpful guide to applying for a primary school place.

Pre-school age children 

In November each year we hold an Open Evening for the parents of prospective pupils and “Lawford Experience” taster sessions give pre-school pupils the chance to join in some activities that reflect Foundation Stage class learning. 


Staff are always pleased to show prospective pupils and their parents around the school and an appointment can be made through the school office.  

Parents will be given more information when they visit the school prior to their child or children starting here.  Our induction sessions for pupils are organised to help ensure that every child makes a smooth transition into our school.

Children already of school age

If you are moving into the area and/or considering transferring your child from another primary school, information about availability in your child's year group is available here.


Applications must be made directly to the School using the forms below.


If a place can be offered, it is expected that the child will start within 10 school days of the offer being made, if for the current term, or at the start of the term for which the application has been made.


Please note: Applications for the start of the next academic year or the next term cannot be dealt with until the half term prior to the requested admission date. 


For example:

An application for Autumn Term (September) will not be accepted until the preceding summer half term holiday (May/June).

An application for Spring Term (January) will not be accepted until the preceding autumn half term holiday (October).

An application for Summer Term (April) will not be accepted until the preceding spring half term holiday (February).
