A child becomes eligible to join a Reception class if he or she is to turn five during the academic year 1st September to 31st August.
Places for Reception classes for all Lancashire Schools are allocated by the Local Authority (for our school, this is based at White Cross Education Centre in Lancaster).
Admission information is available from Grosvenor Park (or any other Primary School) from September in the year before your child is due to attend. There are statutory rules, guidelines and deadlines for the application process – we are happy to explain and help in any way we can.
In the event that Grosvenor Park is oversubscribed, the Authority will use the County Admissions’ Policy to decide on which child is allocated to our school. An appeals procedure exists for those who are not offered places. Please enquire for a copy of the County Admissions Policy should you wish to see it.
Children who are successful in gaining a place with us will be invited to an established induction process which begins around June prior to their September start. We will make visits to nurseries as part of our induction process and ‘home visits’ are available on request. It is expected that all children will begin school together in September.

In Other Year Groups
In the first instance, please contact the school office and check the availability of a place. If a place is available, we request that you complete our application form and then arrange to meet with the Headteacher so that you can visit the school and ensure that Grosvenor Park is right for you and your child.
When a year group is full, admissions are only possible following a successful appeal hearing arranged by the Lancashire Education Authority.

When your child is offered a place at Grosvenor Park we will ask you to read, sign and return a copy of our Parents’ Contract. This is merely a way of committing to paper an agreement that we will both do our best by your child when s/he is a pupil in our school.
