What are the school's admission arrangements?

School Admissions


St Hild’s College C.E Aided Primary School has an admissions limit of 30 pupils per class from Reception to Year 6. We also have our own school Nursery which is part of our Foundation Stage Unit. This provision provides admission for a total of 52 Nursery children and 12 two year old children. We offer a range of sessions, which includes free 30 hour provision and free 15 hour provision for 3 year old children and free 15 hour provision for entitled 2 year olds. Please contact school to discuss these options.  


Applying for a school place if your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan or a Statement of SEN

Children and young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) or a Statement of Special Education Needs follow a different admission and transfer process for a new school, however parents should continue to complete Durham County Council’s parental preference form as part of the admission process to a new school.  You continue to have a right to request a particular school and this will be considered alongside the information that we have about your child’s special educational needs.  The information would have been provided as part of the Education, Health and Care assessment or following the review meeting and this information should be shared with the new school as soon as possible.


We are committed to meeting the needs of all children including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. Before starting St Hild's, we would ask parents of children with SEND to discuss their child's identified needs so that appropriate intervention and support can be planned and implemented to support the transition process. Advice from the LA or other agencies may be requested to ensure that we can meet any needs your child has.


Full details of the admission arrangements can be found in the Primary and Secondary Admissions brochure produced by Durham County Council.


Please visit the Durham County Council website for information regarding the school admission process and primary school admissions.
