For further Admissions information, please see our Admissions Policy 23/24 in the Policies section of the website.

Green Lane operates a single intake into Reception with children starting full time schooling in the September preceding their fifth birthday.


The Academy maintains a register of children requesting a place in Nursery. The school operates a 39 place Nursery. Three year old children are eligible for admission to the Nursery, although the date of admission is dependent upon places being available. Priority is given to the children living within the Academy’s admission zone.

Attendance is on a part-time basis, morning or afternoon, as allocated. There is no differentiation between morning and afternoon sessions, each being three hours long. Parents are welcome to stay with their children until they are confidently settled. Opportunities exist for more flexible arrangements – i.e. 30 hour provision for eligible parents. The Nursery Staff will discuss this with nursery parents.

N.B. Parents should note that a place in Nursery does not guarantee a place in main school – please see below.

Main School

The Academy’s admission number for 2023/24 is 90. Decisions on who is admitted to the Academy are made in liaison with the Local Education Authority as follows:

The application procedures for admission to reception classes are in accordance with the Co-ordinated Admission Scheme for Primary Schools. It should be noted that all children requiring a reception place at a school must apply for a place even if the child attends the school’s nursery.

The Academy does maintain a register of interest of those parents who would like their children to attend Green Lane. This list is shared with the local authority but can only be considered in line with the criteria described below.

Proposed Over-Subscription Criteria

Where more parents/carers have expressed a preference for a particular school than the admission number, the Local Authority must apply its over-subscription criteria in deciding which parents/carers preferences can be met. After the admission of pupils with statements of special educational needs where a particular school is named in the statement, the over-subscription criteria for primary schools will be applied as follows;

Primary Admissions

  • ‘Children looked after’, in public care, for whom the school has been expressed as a preference.
  • Pupils permanently resident in the Admission Zone, i.e. the address at which the child is registered for child benefit, who express a preference for that school (proof of address may be required).
  • Pupils who will have a brother and/or step brother and/or sister and/or step sister or the child of the parent/carer’s partner living at the same address attending the school in the September of admission.
  • Pupils with social and/or medical reasons for attending the school, which in the latter circumstances are substantiated by the LA medical advisors.
  • Pupils who attend the nursery of the school they wish to attend in reception.
  • Pupils who reside closest to a particular school, measured in a straight line. The measure will be taken from the front door of the pupils’ home to the main entrance of the school.

When distinguishing between pupils within the same criteria the pupil with the highest second criteria will be admitted i.e. a pupil living within the admission zone who has a brother or sister attending the school in the September of admission will have a higher criteria than a pupil who lives in the admission zone but does not have a brother or sister attending the school.

N.B.  Attendance at a school nursery does not guarantee a place in the reception class of that school.

Parents wishing to apply for their children to attend Green Lane may contact the Head Teacher for an appointment to come and view the school.

Parents who have been unsuccessful in their request for a school place for their child have the right to appeal. This must be done directly to the Academy and not via the local authority. For more information about the appeals process, please see the Admission Appeals policy on our policies page.
