Admission Arrangements

Lime Walk Primary School has an annual admission number of 30 pupils per year for Reception, and we issue places for any other children in other year groups, as and when they may become available.

Section 324 of the Education Act 1996 requires the governing bodies of all maintained schools to admit children with an EHC (Education, Health and Care) Plan that names the school. 

Starting Nursery at Lime Walk Primary School

Starting Nursery is an exciting time in a child’s life as they start their journey through school.  At Lime Walk Primary School our children benefit from an open plan free-flow approach so Nursery and Reception children can learn and play together to maximise learning and develop interactions with other children and adults.

The separate entrance for our Nursery children helps create the feeling of a small school ‘within a school’. Drop off and collection from the class door ensure our children feel safe in their environment and the teaching staff are always there to welcome the child and speak with parents and carers.
