Admissions

Long Mead Community Primary School is a school for boys and girls aged between three and eleven years. There are three Key Stages in the school - Foundation Stage, which consists of the Nursery and Reception, Key Stage 1 (Infant Department) and Key Stage 2 (Junior Department). We will be pleased to make arrangements for you to visit the school and to discuss your child’s education with The Head of School.

Nursery aged children are generally admitted in September and January each year. Your child may be admitted into the Nursery from the age of three. Places are very limited and restricted to twenty-six children in each session. Children currently attend for 3 hours each day in either morning or afternoon sessions. We recommend that you register your child by contacting the school office as soon as possible.
 
Under a new government initiative (Free For Two) children may also be admitted at the start of the term during which they become three but only if they meet certain criteria for example, they live in a household where the adults qualify for Free School Meals or they are a Child Looked After by the Local Authority. For full details please see our Nursery Admissions policy or ask at the school office.
 
Whilst in the Foundation Unit, your child will move to Reception, but it is necessary to complete a CAF primary application form as transfer is not automatic.
