For September 2022 the GB has agreed that the school should have up to 656 children: one Nursery Class; three classes in Reception; three classes in Year 1; three classes in Year 2; three classes in Year 3; three classes in Year 4; in year 5 three classes and year 6 three classes.

 

Applying for a mid-entry place during the school year

If you are applying for a place in Reception, Year 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 during the school year (not at the beginning of Reception) please make an application directly to the local authority following this link. We often have a waiting list in every year group which is managed and held by the admission team at Cambridgeshire County Council. Nursery Admissions are managed by the school. For more information please contact the school office. The school’s catchment is shown below. Please consult our admissions’ criteria.

 

Requesting deferred entry

Parents may seek a place for their child outside of their normal age group, for example, if the child is gifted and talented or has experienced problems such as ill health. In addition, the parents of a summer born child may choose not to send that child to school until the September following their fifth birthday and may request that they are admitted out of their normal age group – to reception rather than year 1. If parents wish to make an application for deferred entry or admission into a year group that is not their chronological normal year of entry, they should do so in writing to the Executive Headteacher with any additional documents from other professionals included. The Executive Headteacher will consider all applications and determine the outcome. He may request further information to add clarity to the application and will inform parents within 15 working days. Please email enquiries@universityprimaryschool.org.uk should you wish to make an application.
