If you would like to visit the school before requesting a placement for your child with the Local Authority Admissions Team, please make an appointment with the Headteacher, who will be happy to show you around.

All Reception Class and In-Year admissions are dealt with centrally via Derby City Council:

If you want to apply for a school place you can:

  • apply online:,
  • apply by phone on 01332 642617 – this will take around 10 minutes and you will need to know the name of the school you are applying to
  • apply using a paper form – telephone 01332 642730 to ask for a form.

Once the school is informed by the Local Authority of the offer of a placement, we will then write to you with our Admissions Procedure.

Children are eligible for entry into the Reception Class in September of the School Year in which they are 5 years old. A meeting for all parents offered places by the Admissions Team is held at the school in June/July, prior to admission in September. If your child attends our Nursery, you will automatically receive an application pack from the Admissions Team when the admission process commences.

Names are accepted for our Nursery waiting list from the age of two. Children are offered places in the Nursery Class for either: 5 mornings; 5 afternoons; or 2 ½ days (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning OR Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday) in the school term following their 3rd Birthday. We are happy to offer places to children in our Nursery outside of our catchment area, who will possibly be taking up Reception placements at their local school at the appropriate age.

The Secondary Feeder School which serves Baby Kids is Bemrose Community School. When your child enters Year 6 you will automatically receive an application pack from the Education Service requesting your Secondary School Preference Application Form.

An Admissions Handbook produced by Derby City Council outlining the admissions procedure, is available on the Derby City Council Website.
