All children are admitted in the September of the academic year in which they attain their fifth birthday, on or before the following 31st August. 

Applications for admission to primary schools are made through North Yorkshire County Council - please follow the link below.

As a member of the Yorkshire Collaborative Academy Trust (YCAT), we follow the trust-wide admissions policy, which is based upon the North Yorkshire County Council policy.

The YCAT admissions policy can be found below.

In normal years, prospective parents/carers are welcome to visit the school by appointment with the Headteacher.  This year, due to the exceptional circumstances of the Covid pandemic, we cannot show prospective parents/carers around the school.

Please see the separate Admissions 2022 tab if your child is due to start primary school in September 2022 (or future years) as we have produced visual presentations of Lothersdale Primary School to help give you a taste of what we can offer you and your child.

We have a very lovely, very experienced Early Years teacher who is supported by excellent Teaching Assistants; together they will ensure that your child has the best possible introduction to school life.
