Admission Policy

Our School follows the guidelines set by the North Yorkshire Local Education Authority (LEA). Any parents wishing to enrol their child/children at the school are welcome to call at any time in the school day, preferably having first made an appointment. On their visit to school they will be shown round by the Head or member of the Senior Leadership Team. The general organisation of the school, curriculum and teaching methods can be discussed at this time.

Application forms are available on line on or contact the school admissions team on 01609 536054.

Priority for admission in the following order

  • 1st - children and young people in public care for whom the school has been expressed as a preference.
  • 2nd - children the authority believes to have special social or medical reasons for admission.
  • 3rd - children living within the normal area of the school.
  • 4th children living outside the normal area of the school


In line with national rulings, children which have been enrolled within the school nursery and have attended continually are not guaranteed a place in reception. The nursery intake is a maximum of 26 children in the morning and 26 in the afternoon. Nursery application forms are available from the school office.

Entrance to School

Children who are aged four before 31st August (of the current school year) will be eligible to apply for a place in school. At Barlby CP we offer one intake per year in September.

Prior to the start of the school year, parents will be invited to an evening meeting at the school; during the meeting there will be an opportunity to meet the Head and your child’s teacher. You will be able to look around the school and your child’s new classroom. At this meeting you will be provided with an information pack with all the relevant information you will require.

Your child will also be invited into school for a series of workshops to meet their teacher and see their classroom.
