Admissions to the School
To apply for a place at Thornton Primary School or to find out more about school admissions go to:
Many primary schools in Lancashire can accept all who wish to attend, but if the school is oversubscribed, the following criteria is used:
1. Children looked after by the local authority at the time when preferences are expressed and who are still looked after by the local authority at the time of their admission to school
2. Children for whom the Local Authority accepts that there are exceptional medical social or welfare reasons which are directly relevant to the school concerned
3. Children with older brothers and sisters attending the school when the younger child will start
4. Remaining places are allocated according to where a child lives. Those living nearest to the preferred school by a walking route recognised by the Local Authority will have priority.
Our admission number for the the academic year 2019/2020 is 20 children from EYFS to Year 5. In Year 6 we have space for 25 children.
