The deadline for applications is the end of February preceding the September intake. Children are admitted in the September after their third birthday and must have their fourth birthday between 1st September and 31st August of the year they are admitted to our nursery. The criteria for allocating places are the same as the Local Authority (LA) for reception places. There is one intake in September each year. You can view the Nursery Admissions Policy in the documents section at the bottom of this page.
N.B. A place in nursery does not guarantee a place in the school.
School admissions (i.e. Reception Class):
The standard intake number for the school is 60.
Children are admitted into the Reception class via a single intake in September. Children whose fifth birthday falls between September 1st and the end of August commence in September.
Applications for a reception place in September 2020 are now open.
All admissions for school are administered by the LA not the school. Details can be found at: https://www.manchester.gov.uk/info/500321/primary_school_admissions
If you live outside Manchester and need a place here you should still apply to your current council where you reside.
The deadline for applications for September 2020 is Wednesday 15 January 2020. Offers of places to those who applied on-time will be sent by Manchester City Council on National Offer Day which is 16 April 2020. Applying late means you have less chance of getting a place at Brookburn because Manchester City Council offer places to on-time applications first.
It is imperative that parents/carers complete the admission process for a school place and return it to the LA by the date stated. The process must be completed and returned even if the child is a sibling and even if the child is already in our nursery.
