Ebor Academy Trust is the admission authority for the school. We are an academy school and cater for pupils between the ages of 3-11. The school’s admission authority sets the admission policy every year and works with the Local Authority’s Admissions Unit who coordinate places at all schools in the local authority. 

Making a decision about which school is right for your child is very important. Should any interested parents wish to visit you are very welcome to look round our school at any time of the year. Please contact the school office to make an appointment on 01757 616374 or if you want to email you can do so on and we will aim to respond as soon as possible.

How to apply for a place at the school

If you are applying for a reception place, all applications are made in advance to North Yorkshire County Council .

The LA website is a composite prospectus for all North Yorkshire schools and includes information about:

  • all of the steps you need to go through to make an application
  • the key dates
  • an explanation about how places are offered if there are more applications than spaces (oversubscribed)
  • the online application portal – apply online and you’ll be sent your offer by email
  • a summary of each school’s individual admission policy criteria
  • Information about applying under a specific admission criteria (such as your child being previously looked after). It is really important to ensure you submit all supporting evidence by the deadline to show you meet any such criteria.

We recommend choosing five schools to give your child the best chance of getting a place at a school you prefer.

If you live outside of North Yorkshire and want your child to go to a school in North Yorkshire, you must apply to your own local authority and they will inform us of your request.

Going to a school’s nursery does not guarantee your child a place at our school.

If you have a child that is born between 1st Sept 2018 and 31st Aug 2019, you will need to apply for a primary school place for them to start in Reception in September 2023.

Applications Open 12 October 2022
Deadline date for application 15 January 2023
National Offer Day – notification will come from the Local Authority 17 April 2023
Deadline for return of forms, if appealing 16 May 2023
Appeals heard June/July 2023*

In Year Admissions

If your child is moving schools either during the school year or for the start of a new school year, then you will need to make an In-Year Application using the Local Authority’s Co-ordinated Admission Scheme for in-year admissions.  Applications to start our school in-year should be made no earlier than one term before the place is required, and it is recommended that you apply no later than a period of twenty school days, that is four weeks in term time, before you wish for the place to be available for your child.

The Local Authority will confirm the outcome of the application in writing within 15 school days.  If the application is refused, the Local Authority will advise on the statutory appeal procedure.  Details of the Co-ordinated Admission Scheme and how in-year applications are managed are available on this link.
