Thank you for considering Adlington St Paul's CE Primary School for your child.
Children are not legally required to start school until the term following their fifth birthday. In Lancashire, however, all children who have their 5th birthday between 1 September 2022 and 31 August 2023 may start school in September 2022 if their parents / carers wish it.
Applications for primary and secondary school is opened from Wednesday 1st September 2021. The link to apply is www.lancashire.gov.uk/schools.
The closing date for Primary School Applications was 15th January 2021.
If you need to make a late application, please contact the Local Area Office.
**Please print off and complete the Supplementary Form and return this to school before the closing date**.
In-Year Admissions / Non-routine Admissions
It sometimes happens that a child needs to change school other than at the “normal” time; such admissions are known as non-routine or in-year admissions.
Parents wishing their child to attend our school should arrange to visit to the school. You will then be provided with an application form once they have a definite local address (please find application form below). If there is a place in the appropriate class, then the governors will arrange for the admission to take place. If there is no place, then the admissions committee will consider the application and information about how to appeal against the refusal will be provided. Appeals for children moving into the area will not be considered until there is evidence of a permanent address, e.g. exchange of contracts or tenancy agreement with rent book.
