Applications for Reception

Admissions for Reception are based on the Pele Trust admissions policy. Applications are made on the Northumberland County Council Website. If you live outside of our catchment area then you would apply through your local authority and name Ponteland 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 in the Pele Trust policy.  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?

The portal opens in November, it then closes in January.  NCC allocate the places and National Offers Day is in April. Parents have until May to accept the place. All exact dates are on the NCC website.
