Reception Admissions

Parents of preschoolers might find it hard to believe that their little ones will be starting school next year. 


If your child was born between 1 September 2018 and 31 August 2019 they will be due to start reception in September 2023.


There are many factors to take into consideration when choosing the right school and our schools are more than happy to help you make the right choice.


It’s really important to apply by the relevant closing date or you may not be considered in the first round of applications. We can’t reserve a place for those who apply late, so you’ll be less likely to get your preferred school. You can name up to three preferences and they can be schools both within and outside North Somerset.


Schools within the Extend Learning Academies Network are:

Banwell Primary School

Bournville Primary School

Locking Primary School

Mead Vale Community Primary School

Mendip Green Primary School

Milton Park Primary School

Oldmixon Primary School

Walliscote Primary School

Windwhistle Primary School
