The admission arrangements are used to allocate places at schools for the 2021 to 2022 school year.

Admission for September 2021

As with all maintained schools the Local Authority at Nottingham City Council manages all admissions to Heathfield.  Heathfield is based over two campuses: Scotland Road and Kersall Drive, which are approximately 1 mile apart.

Once the LA has allocated a school place at Heathfield Primary, the Governing Body will determine which pupils will attend which site: either the Scotland Road Campus, or the Kersall Drive Campus.

Decisions will be based on:

  • Whether the pupil has a sibling already attending one of the existing sites


  • The distance from home (in a straight line as the crow flies) from home to each site (all admissions)
  • Which site there is space available in the allocated year group (in-year admissions)

Parents/Carers have a right to appeal the school’s decision regarding which campus the place is being offered. Each case is considered by the school’s own Admissions Appeals Panel on an individual basis. The decision of this panel is final and there is no further right of appeal.

The school’s admission number is 100 places for Foundation 2 (Reception) pupils. Therefore, 40 places will be on offer at the Scotland Road Campus and 60 places at the Kersall Drive Campus.

You will be able to apply online for a school place via the Nottingham City Council website.

If you have not yet registered your child’s details with Nottingham City council you can still do so by clicking here.

Nursery Admissions (F1)

We admit children to our Nursery from the age of 3.  Please contact the school office for an application form.

Our office team will place your child’s name on our waiting list and you will be contacted in due course to explain details of our admission process.

Once a potential start date has been identified, a member of the Early Years Foundation Stage team will contact you regarding a home visit, and will discuss attendance at our Getting Ready for Nursery group for children and parents new to school.
