Starting primary school
10. Transferring from nursery to school
You need to apply for a place at a primary school, even if it’s linked to your child’s nursery school or class.
Parents do not have an automatic right to transfer to the primary school or academy to which the nursery class is attached. You will need to state your preferences for school places like all other parents. Attending a particular nursery does not necessarily increase your child's chances of being
offered a reception place at a particular school or academy. Please refer to the individual admissions policy for each school.
