Parents‎ > ‎


A parent who is considering applying for admission for their child to Cullercoats Primary School is invited to contact the school and make an appointment to visit, talk to the headteacher, and view the school.

Entry to the Reception Year

We endeavour to provide a school environment in which the young child has access to many new experiences. The transfer from home, nursery or play group should be a happy
experience. There are opportunities for children and parents to visit school during the Summer Term prior to the child’s admission. A Parent/Pre-School group (organised by a group of parents) is currently held in school on a Wednesday afternoon each week to enable the children to meet and play with others who will be joining them in their reception year.

All children are admitted to a reception class during the first half of the Autumn Term
of the academic year in which they attain their fifth birthday. Further details will be given to parents once they have completed an admission form. 60 places are available for Reception Year children at the school.
