Admissions to Reception

Admissions for Reception are completed on the Northumberland County Council Website. If you live outside of our catchment area then you would apply through your local authority and name Heddon-on-the-Wall St. Andrew’s CE Primary School as your first choice.

How are places allocated?

We operate an equal preference allocation scheme.  This means that all applications are considered together.  Applications are ranked in accordance with the admissions criteria.  Once the applications are prioritised and compared to the number of places available it is possible to determine who will be offered a place.

How will I know if I have a place for my child?

Portal opens in November (date TBC),  it then closes in January (date TBC).  NCC allocate the places and National Offers Day (April). Parents have until May to accept the place.
