Admission to Nursery

At Biddick Primary School, we have a nursery provision for 40 children. The places offered are morning places for five days per week 8.30 am – 11.30 am or places of 30 hours provision 8.30 am- 2.30 pm. We can also offer extra wraparound cover to parents, who wish their child to stay until 3.15 pm.

Places can be registered when your child turns 2 years old. To register and request a place visit the school office at the main school reception. Your child is eligible to begin nursery education the term after their third birthday.

Please note that admission to our nursery does not guarantee admission to our Reception.

Admission to Reception

Admission to Reception is through application during the advertised admission period. We are a maintained school and operate within the Sunderland Admissions Scheme.  This means that our Local Authority sets the criteria and allocates places based on these criteria.

 If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangement below.

Arrangements For The Admission Of Pupils With Disabilities

The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 defines a disabled person as one who has a physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on a persons ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.  

Most children with Special Needs will not be disabled within the meaning of the Act. The admission of pupils with disabilities is considered in the first instance in the same way as non-disabled pupils.  Further considerations are made in the light of need and accessibility.  It is the Governors' policy to accommodate pupils with disabilities should parents wish and individual needs are planned for, to prevent any pupils being treated less favourably than other pupils.  In practice we ensure that classroom and extra curricular activities encourage the participation of all pupils, including those categorised as having Special Educational Needs.  Staff organise human and physical resources within the school to increase access to learning and participation by all pupils.



If there are no places available and the class or year group is full you can appeal the decision. 

To receive an appeal form, please contact the school office in person, via telephone on 0191 4151510 or by email: admin@biddickprimary.org.uk
