Making Learning Irresistible


If you wish to apply for a place at Melbourn Primary School you should submit an application to the Local Authority Admissions Officer.

The document ‘First Steps Admission to Primary School’ will give you information about:-

  • How to decide which school/s you would like to apply for
  • How to make your application for a primary school place
  • How places are offered if there are more applications than places available
  • What will happen if it is not possible to offer your child a place at school

Melbourn Primary School Admission Form 2021

Due to the pandemic, this year the LA ‘Going up to Secondary School’ events will be held online via Microsoft Teams and will run in September/October. The events aim to provide parents with information about transitioning from Primary to Secondary School and will cover the application process as well as information and strategies on how parents can support their children during the move.


Parents of all Year 6 children are encouraged to attend.  We also invite parents of children in Year 5 with an EHCP as the process is different for these children and the events provide timely advice and information on making their Secondary School application.


Speakers include staff from the Statutory Assessment Team and the Admissions Team, Educational Psychologists and Specialist Teachers.


Please see the above a flyer for more information, including the dates and the link to book a place.
