Admissions to Reception

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.  Dates for the 2020 tours will be published during the summer.


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

You have to apply online with Bury Council between November and January (follow the link below).  Places are allocated by April.


 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).   Please note this will be reviewed for 2020 in light of Covid19.


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.  Please note this will be reviewed for 2020 in light of Covid19.
