St Anne's Infants' School


Reach for the Stars

Reception admissions

Sadly due to Covid-19, we are unable to carry out tours of the school to prosepctive parents. We hope that the following video tour will give you a glimpse of what life is like at St Anne's Infants'. There is also a wealth of information on the website and you are welcome to email the school office if you have specific questions.

The school is the admissions authority for entry to Reception. However, the school commissions the Local Authority to conduct the bulk admissions process for the September of every year, using the Local Authority admissions criteria to offer the 90 places and manage over subscription. Please note that from September 2021, we will be offering 60 places. Applications need to be made through the LA web page as below. The criteria applied are as follows:

  1. Children in Care or children who were previously in Care but immediately after being in Care became subject to an adoption, residence, or special guardianship order
  2. Siblings at the infants or the paired junior school
  3. Children living closest to the school as measured in a direct line from the home address to the school


Further details and definitions of the criteria can be found in the policy below. 


Applications can be made online at from September to mid January of each year and the first round of places are offered in mid April, with second round offers in June. Further details can be found on the website or calling 0117 903 7694 or emailing


There are 90 places in three Reception classes. From September 2021, there will be 60 places in two Reception classes. Children are allocated a class usually in July to start in September. Classes are finalised by the October half term with any changes being made by the start of Term 2. To support our emphasis on personal and social development classes are sometimes re-organised as they move into Year 1 and are mainly kept as a class into Year 2, though this may not always be the case.


The school does not admit children out of their chronological year group except in exceptional circumstances. If you wish to defer your child's entry to Reception you must request to do so in writing to the head teacher before you submit your application to the local authority.
