Tuesday 6th December 5 – 6pm
We welcome anyone who has children who would be starting in either Lower or Upper Foundation in 2023. We would love to meet your children too so please bring them along. Please ring the office to let us know you are coming. We look forward to meeting you. Mrs Sholi. EYFS Lead.
Admissions to Main Stream School
Children will be admitted into mainstream school (Upper Foundation) from the September after their fourth birthday. Admissions into mainstream school are controlled by Wakefield Local Authority in line with the Agreed Admissions Policy that can be found on Wakefield Council Admissions Information, full details and procedures for making an application can be found on the Wakefield Local Authority Website.
At Middlestown Primary Academy we have 30 places in each year group. You will need to apply via the Local Authority Admissions Team for a place at our school. This can be completed online (using the above link to their website) or you can request a paper application form by contacting the admissions team on 01924 306052.
Packs for parents to apply for their child’s place to start school in September 2022 (child’s date of birth falls between 01/09/2017 to 31/08/2018) will be sent out by the Schools Admissions Team direct to parents. If you have not received a pack by the end of October 2021 please contact the School Admissions Team on the above number or via the Local Authority Website who will arrange for a pack to be sent out.
Please see the Parents Guide to Admissions which details the process to follow and the deadline dates for submitting your application. If more children request a place than there are places available then the Local Authority will follow the criteria set out in their policy (please see the link below for further information).
Admissions to Lower Foundation Stage (Nursery)
Children wishing to start in Lower Foundation can be admitted from the term after their third birthday. For example, if your child is 3:
- Between the 1st September and the 31st December, they will start in January
- Between the 1st January and the 31st March, they will start after Easter
- Between the 1st April and the 31st August, they will start in September
Applications should be made direct to the school prior to your child reaching 3 years of age. You can download the application form below and upon returning it to school your child will then be placed on a waiting list held at the school. Places are offered using the admissions policy provided by Wakefield Local Authority and you will be contacted by school during the term previous to their expected start date.
We follow the criteria set out in the Local Authority Nursery Admissions policy below. This website will also help you to establish your eligibility for 30 hours free childcare, as we do offer both part-time and full-time hours at Middlestown School. However, a place in our Nursery setting does not guarantee a full-time place in our Upper Foundation class and so you will still need to apply to Wakefield Local Authority for this.
In order that part-time children have a smooth transition into our school, our Foundation Stage staff may undertake home visits and the children also build up their time to spending a full morning with us.
