Nursery Admissions Policy


Children are admitted to the reception year in the September after their 4th birthday.

Please click on this link Oldham Council Admission Information

Informal visits to have a look around school before decisions are made are encouraged. Your child will be offered the chance to visit the class he or she will be joining before starting in September. We have a ‘Moving Up’ day in July each year when all children spend time in the classes they will join in September. Children can be admitted to any class during the school year if there is a vacancy.

Moving on – Transfer procedures


If you wish your child to transfer to another primary school, you are requested to discuss this with the Head Teachers of both schools. The beginning of a school year is the best time for a transfer, but we realise that this is not always possible. Please ensure that we are informed of the name and address of the new school and any change of home address where appropriate.


We have well-established links with the secondary schools in the area to which our pupils normally transfer. Decisions about secondary schooling are obviously a matter of parental choice. Parents are welcome to discuss this with the Head Teacher at any stage.


Please contact our school office directly, complete the following form and forward to Thorp Primary School.
