Primary Admissions

Knaresborough St John’s CE Primary School has one intake in September each year for children starting in Reception. We also accept children mid-year who are either moving into the area or changing schools.

Admissions applications are made via North Yorkshire County Council’s on-line application system.  Please follow the link below for more information and to register your child.

NYCC Primary Admissions

When the Education office inform you that your child has a place with us we will ask you to fill in our Admission Form please click here to download it.

SEN admissions 


We operate in accordance with the North Yorkshire County Council’s School Admissions procedure. All governing bodies are required by section 324 of the Education Act 1996 to admit to the school a child with a statement of special needs that names the school.

If the number of applications exceeds the Published Admission Number (PAN), after the admission of children, where the school is named in the statement of special educational needs (SEN), the following oversubscription criteria will apply:

  1. Looked after children and all previously looked after children for whom the school has been expressed as a preference.
  2. Children the Authority believes to have special social or medical reasons for admission.
  3. Children living within the normal area of the school.
  4. Children living outside the normal area of the school.

Children whose 5th birthday falls between the 1st September and 31st August enter school at the beginning of the autumn term of that year.

At the end of the summer term, we invite the parents of all the following year’s Foundation Stage 2 intake to visit the school and meet the Foundation Stage teachers. This enables all prospective parents to ask questions and obtain an idea of the curriculum in the infant classes.


 Secondary School Admissions

Children in Y6 need to apply for a place at a secondary school before 31st October as places are not automatically allocated.  The link below will take you to the Secondary School Application form.  Please make sure you keep a copy of the application receipt e-mail you will receive back from NYCC.

If you have any questions relating to the admissions procedures then please do not hesitate to contact school on 01423 863265.
