Admission Arrangements

Open Days 2020-2021

We would normally welcome parents to  come and look round school, get a feel for us and ask questions in order to help you with your decision in what schools to apply for. 

However, due to the Covid-19 situation – at this time, we are not allowing any visitors onto site to ensure that we keep any risks to the children and staff to an absolute minimum.  In October, we will be creating a virtual tour of our school which will aim to give you as much information as we can give you.  

We know this is a really big decision that you are about to make but I am sure you will understand the lengths we are all going to in schools at the moment! Once the tour has been created it will be posted here with detail of how you can get in touch to ask us questions. 

Admission into Reception

Starting school and admission into our Reception  is for the September before your child’s 5th birthday. Our Published Admissions Number (PAN) into our Reception class is 60.   For details of how places are allocated, see our admissions policy.

To apply for Park Road, even though we are an academy, you need to fill in Trafford’s coordinated admissions form as they do our Reception admissions on our behalf.   You should find this on their website or contact them directly. Complete your application with Trafford Local Authority either online or hard copy by the set date (usually 15th January). The local authority will inform you of the decision in April when they allocate all school places. 

Please be aware that we are normally heavily over subscribed. If you are unsuccessful you do have the right to appeal this decision.  Before considering an appeal, however, you are invited to talk to the headteacher so that you can gain an understanding of how places have been allocated.  To view our Appeals Timetable, click here.
