The published admission number (PAN) for Meadows Primary School and Nursery is 60 children per year group.
All children are entitled to start in a Reception class in the September after their fourth birthday. Children do not, however, have to start school in September if it is felt that they are not ready.
The statutory school age, by which a child must start school, will remain as the beginning of the term after their fifth birthday.

Parents should be aware that if they choose to delay a child's entry to school until the following September, the child could go straight into Year 1 rather than Reception.

Parents should contact the local authority to find out about admission arrangements and to apply for a place in school.
