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 then contact you during the summer term before your child is due to start nursery. We do not admit children on a ‘first come first served’ basis. We have an admissions policy which is reviewed annually: ‘Lily Lane Nursery Admissions Policy’
Primary School Admissions (Reception to Year 6)
If you are allocated a place at Lily Lane Nursery this does not guarantee a place at Lily Lane Primary School. When your child is due to start Reception you will be contacted by Manchester City Council and you must apply 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:
Manchester City Council,
PO Box 532,
Telephone: 0161 245 7166
Fax: 0161 237 3407
e-mail: The Council’s website www.manchester.gov.uk/admissions has lots of advice and copies of relevant application forms.
When your child has been allocated a place in our reception class we will arrange for 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
If your child is in Year 6 you need to apply for their secondary school place. This process is also administered by Manchester City Council Admission’s Team but 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 all pupils in year 6 will 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.
