By law children must start statutory education full time from the beginning of the term following their fifth birthday. At Middleton children may start school in the September of the school year in which they are five.

Children usually are expected to attend full time from the beginning of their time in school. However, the wishes of parents / carers are taken into consideration.

In the event of over-subscription the following allocation criteria will be used:
1 – Children in public care; first priority will be given to looked after children.
2 – Children with a statement of special educational needs.
3 – Children who have siblings on the school’s role on the date of the pupil’s admission.
4 – Children of practising Anglicans, whose commitment to the Church of England is confirmed in writing by a religious minister.
5 – The shortest distance to travel to the school (measured as the crow flies).

If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below or contact the school for more details and to arrange a visit.
