Poringland Primary



The Local Authority decides on the admissions policy for all schools except foundation and voluntary aided schools, which set their own.

Our school has adopted that which is laid down by Norfolk County Council, Children Services. A copy of our Admissions Policy is available on our website: Click here

Children receive full-time education when they reach statutory school age i.e. the term in which they have their fifth birthday, but the school endeavours to offer admission in September on either a part-time or full-time basis to those children who become five during that academic year. Families are not obliged to accept such places and are not bound in law to send their children to school until the term following their fifth birthday.

Children under five should be registered with the Local Authority, but a firm offer of a place cannot be given until the Summer Term.


Our school has adopted the Admissions Policy laid down by Norfolk County Council, Children’s Services. Children can start in Nursery at the beginning of the Autumn term in September for a minimum of four sessions per week. Subject to availability, children can start at the beginning of the term after their third birthday. For example, to be eligible to start Nursery in September, children need to have turned three by 31st August.

We are a term time Nursery, and our opening times are 8.30am-3pm weekdays. Children moving into the area may start mid-term, where a place is available.

Please contact the school office if you would like further information.
