Each year we admit 60 children into Reception. As the school operates a catchment area, places are offered to children living in the catchment area on a distance from school basis. The admission criteria as follows:
• LAC (in public care)
• Sibling at the school at the time of admission
• Children within catchment area who live nearest to the school
• Children outside catchment area who have a sibling in school at the time of admission
• Children outside catchment area without a sibling in school

The Local Authority manages admissions for reception at Raddlebarn and hold the waiting list for reception until December each year. The waiting lists for all other year groups are managed by the school office. The school also manages admission for Nursery and an application form can be downloaded from this page.
