Nursery Admissions

If you would like to register your child for a place in our Nursery please call into the school office; we will take your child’s name, address and date of birth and a contact number for you. We will contact you during the summer term before your child is due to start nursery to let you know if your child has been offered a place. We do not admit children on a ‘first come first served’ basis. We have an admissions policy which is reviewed annually: Nursery Admissions Policy 2023

Primary School Admissions (Reception to Year 6)

If you are allocated a place at Lily Lane Nursery this does not guarantee a reception place at Lily Lane Primary School. When your child is due to start Reception you will be contacted by Manchester City Council who will give you details of how to apply on-line. You must apply to MCC before the deadline which is usually in the January after your child has started Nursery. School places for children in Reception to Year 6 are dealt with by Manchester City Council’s Admissions Team. Their contact details are:

Integrated Admissions,
Manchester City Council,
PO Box 532,
Town Hall,
M60 2LA.
Telephone: 0161 245 7166
Fax: 0161 237 3407

The Council’s website has lots of advice and copies of relevant application forms.

When your child has been allocated a place in our reception class we will contact you to arrange some ‘transition’ this means that we will arrange for you and your child to visit the school and meet the staff and other children.

Secondary School Admissions

In the October after your child starts in Year 6 you need to apply for their secondary school place. This is an on-line process administered by Manchester City Council Admission’s Team. If you have any concerns about the process please do not hesitate to contact us and we will support you through the process.

During the summer term pupils in year 6 will usually be visited by staff from the high school they will be attending. They will also have the opportunity to visit the high school and meet the staff and pupils there.

The deadline for secondary school admissions is usually by the end of October.
