Admission Arrangements

Admission for September 2018

As with all maintained schools the Local Authority at Nottingham City Council manages all admissions to Heathfield. However, as part of the school’s expansion, from October 2015 Heathfield is now based on 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


  • Which site there is space available in the allocated year group (in year admissions)
  • The distance from home (in a straight line as the crow flies) from home to each site (all 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 now 100 places with effect from September 2015, for F2 (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 from 17 November 2017 via the Nottingham City Council website.

Nursery Admissions (F1)

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

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.
