Further information:

You are welcome to put your child's name down on our admissions list by completing and returning the form at the bottom of this page. This does not guarantee you a place at our school, no matter how early you do this. However, it means that you are "in the loop" and will receive the admissions paperwork from the Local Authority.

If you are interested in a place at Greenmount for your child, we offer tours of the school in the Autumn term of the year before your child is due to start.


Admissions to Reception are managed by the Local Authority; full information and contact details can be found on their website following the link at the bottom of this page.

Applications are made between November and January. Places are allocated by April.


If you are offered a place at Greenmount, we will write to you and ask you to accept the place. Our induction process begins at this point. Induction involves a meeting for parents and opportunities for the children to visit the school in June for a taste of school life. There is also the opportunity to have induction sessions in our before/after school club (GOOSE).


We operate a staggered intake in September. For the first ten days, children come to school for either the morning or afternoon session. This allows the children a smooth transition into school and staff the opportunity to get to know the children in smaller groups.

Inclusion on Greenmount's admissions list

Please complete the "message" block with the following details: Full name of child; Gender; Date of birth; Permanent address; Name of parents / guardians; Contact telephone number; Details of any Special Educational Needs or additional information you feel we need to know. We will retain this information on our Admissions' List until the admissions have been finalised by the Local Authority (in April before your child is due to start school).
