Admission to Hollywell Primary School

The school’s admission policy – first admissions into Reception year 


The school will admit children in the September following their fourth birthday.

This process is called first admissions and is dealt with directly by the local authority. You will receive a letter directly to your home address in the November of the school year prior to the next academic year when your child will become five. 


All information is available at  Parents/carers are required to apply on a common application form through their ‘home’ local authority.


You will need an email account if you wish to make an online application; it is a safe and secure way to apply and you can make changes to your application right up to the closing date. You will receive an email to acknowledge that your application is being processed.


 You can find further information from Nottinghamshire County Council here. 

Admissions to year groups other than the intake year


Applications for admission to other year groups will be considered in relation to the published admission number (PAN) which applied when the year group was first admitted to the school, subject to infant class size restrictions.  In some schools, changes in circumstances, such as the building of additional classrooms or as a result of teaching group organisation, will require the school and the LA to agree admission numbers which will apply to each year group.  The Local Education Officer will agree the detail of this should any issues arise. In the absence of an agreement, the PAN which applied when the year group was first admitted to the school will apply.  If places are available within the year group, applications will be considered in accordance with the current published admission criteria for admission to the school.  If places are available, the child will normally be admitted to the school.

Come And Visit!

The best way to decide whether a school is right for your child and you is to visit. The Head Teacher will only be too be happy to show you around the school.
