Admissions and parental choice –Nursery
We maintain a waiting list for admission to our Nursery. We admit children to Nursery over the year; the term after the children turn 3. We currently operate morning nursery places only. Children attending our nursery are not guaranteed a place in the reception class. A separate application must be made to the local authority who are responsible for allocating places at our school. We welcome visits from interested parents and families at any point throughout the year.
Arrangements for children starting school
Beckfoot Priestthorpe Primary School is a community school and we admit up to 30 children into reception every September. We only have one intake each year so children usually start school full time in the September of the year they turn five.
Each year, all new reception parents are invited to a meeting where relevant information is shared about our school. Visits from parents in other year groups considering a transfer to the school can be made at any time by contacting the Headteacher.
If you decide to move your child then you will need to contact the admissions team at the local authority to apply for a school place. Their telephone number is
The admission arrangements for Beckfoot Priestthorpe will be updated by 15 March each year.
Please note all appeals regarding allocation of school place must be submitted no later than the 28 February.
