Community Primary School
If you would like to register your child for a place in our Nursery, please call into the school office to collect an application form. We will contact you during the summer term, before your child is due to start nursery, to let you know if your child has been offered a place. We do not admit children on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. We have an admissions policy which can be viewed by clicking the link below:
If you are allocated a place at Moston Lane Nursery this does not guarantee a reception place at Moston Lane Primary School. When your child is due to start Reception you will be contacted by Manchester City Council who will give you details of how to apply on-line. You must apply to Manchester City Council 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. Our planned admission number is 60 children per year group. We cannot admit children to take us above that number, unless under the direction of the Local Authority. When you apply for a place, your child will be placed on a waiting list. This is managed by the Local Authority, to ensure fair access for all children. If a place becomes available, it will be offered to the next child on the waiting list. If you wish to appeal for a place at Moston Lane this must be via the Local Authority Integrated Admission team.
Their contact details are:
Manchester City Council,
PO Box 532,
Telephone: 0161 245 7166
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 contact you to arrange transition sessions. 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
In the October after your child starts in Year 6, you need to apply for their secondary school place. This is an on-line process administered by Manchester City Council Admission’s Team. You will receive a letter explaining how to apply during the summer term when your child is in Year 5. 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, pupils in year 6 will usually be visited by staff from the high school they will be attending. They will also have the opportunity to visit the high school.
