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 academic 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 our Admission Policy in the Policies section of this website.
All school admissions need to be made through Norfolk County Council. Admissions and in-year transfer requests can be made online or by contacting the Norfolk County Council School Admissions team.
