Reception Admissions

All parents who wish to send their children to Five Ways School are required to complete the Local Authority application form.  The LA admissions policy will determine which children are admitted.  Priority will be given to 'catchment area' children and to siblings of children presently at Five Ways School.  The catchment area is defined by Local Authority, details of which are available either from school or through the admissions department.  Parents of pupils who are not allocated a place may appeal through the standard procedures.  Details of this are also available from the school or from the admissions department.  The school published admission number (PAN) is 90.  Children are admitted to Reception classes in the September of the academic year during which their fifth birthday falls.  Additional information regarding admissions can be found by following the link:
