Nursery education is offered to children aged four in community maintained nursery classes and schools. This enables children to enjoy playing and learning before they go to school and to acquire the skills which will help them once they start school.
Nursery school places
Primary school admissions
Under the Education Act 2002, North Yorkshire County Council will make arrangements to help you decide which school you would prefer your child to go to.
Secondary school admissions
North Yorkshire County Council will make arrangements to help you decide which school you would prefer your child to go to.
School admissions - appeals
A pupil may appeal for a place at any community school to which they apply and for which they have been refused a place. This could be because the school is oversubscribed (that is there are more pupils applying to go there than there are places available) or, in the case of selective grammar schools, because your child did not achieve the cut-off mark needed. The responsibility for appeals rests with the Local Authority.
Support for pupils when moving between nursery and primary schools or primary and secondary schools to ensure that pupils are prepared for the transition. This also includes school moves as a result of local reorganisation (school closures etc.).
