Admissions – Ainderby Steeple Church of England Primary Schools

The typical catchment areas for Ainderby Steeple Church of England Primary School includes the villages of Ainderby Steeple, Morton-On-Swale, Scruton, Thrintoft, Warlaby and the nearby town of Northallerton. Although parents from outside the catchment area may of course exercise their right of choice and send their children to the school, providing there is space available.

Ainderby Steeple Church of England Primary School is part of the Dales Academies Trust and is located in North Yorkshire. Applications for the admission of all children are dealt with by the Local Authority. An approach should first be made to the school to see if there is space, then a preference form should be submitted to the County Education Officer, County Hall, Northallerton, DL7 8AE or online. The school’s maximum admission limit is 20.

Children whose fifth birthday falls between 1st September and 31st August in the current academic year will be admitted full-time in September. Parents may defer their child’s entry into school until later in the school year, but not beyond the beginning of the term after their child’s fifth birthday, nor beyond the academic year for which the original application was accepted.

Parents wishing for their child to attend Ainderby Steeple Church of England Primary School should first telephone the school and book a suitable appointment to view the school.

We are always delighted to show prospective parents around the school. If you decide that you would like your child to attend our school, should we have space, then you will need to follow the link at the bottom of the page.

Parents of children under three are asked to register their children with the school as soon as possible so that future school numbers can be calculated at an early date. We offer both fifteen and/or thirty hours provision in the Pre-School.
