Admissions Arrangements Ladybridge Primary School 


Pupils are admitted into Nursery the term after they are aged 3; they are admitted into Reception in the September before their fifth birthday. Each Local Authority school has a priority area. Details of our priority area are shown below. Before applying to a school different from their priority school, parents are recommended to visit their priority school. There is no guarantee of places for younger children who may wish to attend the school in future.

Ladybridge Primary school has an admission number of 30 children per year group.

The Local Authority allocates all school places. Admissions forms for Nursery, Reception, mid-year and Year 6 transfers must now be completed online at

The school has a Standard Entry Number which means that there are places for up to 30 children in each year group. The school complies with the requirement that all children must be in classes of 30 or less.

The Nursery has provision for 40 part-time places or 20 full-time places; 15 or 30 hours that can be used in a way that is best for the family, e.g. 5 mornings, 2.5 days or a full 30 hour week. 

Children are allocated places in school in the following order of priority:

  • Those with a Statement or Education, Health and Care plan naming the school;
  • Those who are Looked After by the Local Authority;
  • Those who have brothers or sisters in the school;
  • Those who have exceptionally high social and/or medical needs;
  • Then all other applications based on distance drawn by a straight line from home to the school.

Parents who have refused a place have the right to appeal via the Admissions Team, Education Division, Town Hall (0161 474 3919). The Local Authority admissions policy can be viewed at

Visits to school before admission

Parents are welcome to visit school by appointment with the Headteacher.

Children who are due to join our Nursery and Reception classes and their parents will be given the opportunity to have a number of visits to school in the term before they begin.

Parent meetings are also arranged allowing parents to meet staff and to help make the entry into school as smooth as possible for all children.

At Ladybridge we understand how important it is to have a successful start to school.  We will carry out Home visits for pupils entering Nursery and Reception in the term before the children start, (for all families who want this). This allows families and children to have the best possible beginning to their school career; during the visit parents can share any important information with school.
