Admissions Arrangements

Spring Hill Community Primary School offers 60 places for children in Foundation. We would recommend that you apply early for a place in Spring Hill as we are a popular school in the locality. Places are filled quickly by Lancashire County Council admissions. Once places are filled the council will place your child on a waiting list. The school does not have any control over which pupils are placed at Spring Hill School.

Admission arrangements for Foundation Stage pupils are:

Week One: Foundation Stage children do not attend. Home visits will be carried out as part of the induction process during this week.

Week 2: All children attend either in the morning OR in the afternoon

Week 3: All children attend 8.50 to 1pm and stay for lunch

Week 4: All children attend all day 8.50 to 3pm.

In consultation with parents some children will remain part-time until they have settled into the life of the school.

Mid Term Admissions

Non-routine admissions are made through the Local Education Authority. The school has no control over who is, or is not, admitted to the school. You may request a school transfer from from the child's present school and submit this to Lancashire Council Admissions. This is usually done where a family has moved house and another school is closer to the new home or where a parent considers provision at another school to be more appropriate for their child. Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 have places for 60 children per year group and legally we cannot exceed this number. In Years 3-6 our official pupil admission number is 60 per year group, the school may exceed this for children in exceptional circumstances and this would be done through the School Appeal Procedure - Please contact the local education office for more details.
