The Local Authority issues a booklet “Primary Education in County Durham” each year in which the size and admission limits of all Durham Primary Schools are listed, in addition to all the necessary information concerning admission criteria and the appeals procedure.
Visit the Durham County Council website for information regarding the school admission process and primary school admissions.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
The majority of children with Special Educational Needs can be supported at any mainstream primary school.
Primary age provision is also available at certain special schools. Support for individuals is determined by Durham Local Authority through Education, Health and Care Assessment. If you feel that your child has additional needs that we may need to consider during the admissions process, please let us know when you visit us or when you submit the application form and we will be more than happy to discuss any issues with you.
Please view or download the School Admissions Policy, Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Policy and Equal Opportunities Policy which can be found in our School Policies section.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
