Reception Year Admissions

Standard admission numbers for Linden Primary School is 30 per class. Children entering are normally admitted at the beginning of the academic year in which they reach their fifth birthday. Children are initially admitted on a part-time basis until they are ready to cope with all aspects of the whole school day. Full-time attendance is at the discretion of the class teacher in consultation with parents.

The school co-operates with the Local Authority in co-ordinating the admission of pupils to schools in the area. The aim of this is to ensure that as far as possible, parents obtain the school of their choice. Please click on the link to the Gloucestershire County Admission procedures below.

Transfer to Secondary School

As the end of Year 6, all children transfer to secondary school. Parents are informed of the procedures to follow and are given details of the options available in the Autumn Term prior to their child's transfer. Parents are given the opportunity to visit the various local secondary schools with the children and details can be found on Secondary Schools' websites. All parents are notified of the places offered to their children on March 1st in the school year before they change schools. If they are unhappy with the places offered there is an appeals process set up within the Local Authority.

In all instances, if a child is not offered a place, parents may appeal. The process is detailed on the Gloucestershire County Council website.
