If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below. As part of the Attenborough Learning Trust we have agreed to continue to follow the local authority admissions policies.
Green Lane School is an Infant School for boys and girls between the ages of 3+ and 7+ years.
A Priority Area has been designated to define the area from which the school admits children. The Local Authority organises admission for children of statutory school age.
Please see map of priority area.
The current admission limit (standard number) is 90.
Children may be admitted from outside the priority area, in accordance with parental preference, providing that there is a vacancy in the appropriate year group for the child’s age. All applications to admit children must be made by contacting:
School Admissions Service, York House, 91 Granby Street, Leicester. LE1 6FB
This will also apply to children wishing to transfer from the Nursery to the infant department, (Reception). An appropriate form will be issued to parents wishing to apply for a place in the infant department for their child.
There is no designated priority area for the nursery. The children may be admitted from the age of 3+ for either the morning or the afternoon session. Each session lasts 2 1/2 hours. Each child will then be offered one alternative session to make their week 15 hours. Children aged 4+ will be admitted to Reception, subject to available space.
Parents/Carers are asked to register their child with the school office, and new admissions are drawn from the waiting list. Children are required to make 3 visits with their parents, prior to admission, one to visit the office to fill in forms and two visits to the nursery. Parents/Carers are required to supply the child’s birth certificate and personal information about the child. The information will be confidential to the school. We will also require information about how to contact parents in case of an emergency.
All children admitted to school should be toilet trained, unless there is a medical condition that would prevent this.
Children attending the nursery should be brought and fetched by a responsible adult. Foundation Stage children cannot be brought or collected by anyone under 16 years of age.
If a child is absent for more than two weeks, for reasons other than ill health, e.g.: holidays abroad, he/she may lose his/her place in the nursery. To re-apply for a nursery place, parents are asked to contact the school office.
Parents are asked to arrange their holidays to coincide with school closures.
Parents who are planning to send their child to an alternative infant department are encouraged to seek nursery provision within the school of their choice.
Children may be admitted to the school at any time during the academic year, either to the nursery or to the infant department. Parents who are considering sending their child to this school are encouraged to visit beforehand in order to familiarise the child with the school. Parents must remain with their child for the duration of the visit if requested to do so. Admissions are phased in to allow children to settle, before new children are admitted,
New entrants are asked to return home during the lunch hour for a period of one week, after which time they may remain at school for the working day.
The school supports the principle of Inclusion. It is important that children with a disability should not be treated less favourably than other children. Disabled children are accommodated within the school building, where possible. Special provision is made to meet children’s particular needs.
