If your child was born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016, they will be eligible to start primary school in September 2020.
The application process for first-time admission to primary school, into reception year group in September, will open in Rutland in the previous October (eg October 2019 for September 2020 entry), when there will be full details on the Rutland County Council website.
Rutland County Council will target parents of children who are eligible to start primary school, and who are resident in Rutland, by using information collected from pre-schools and nurseries in the area. A letter will be posted out to parents of these children in October advising them of the need to apply for a primary school place for their child. For Rutland residents, there will be an application form, which will be available online or as a paper copy, which will allow you to submit up to 3 preferences of primary school. For further information please use the link below to the Rutland County Council website.
Admissions: Year 1 to Year 6
In-Year admission refers to a child who is not starting primary school for the first time in September (into reception year) but who is transferring from one primary school to another. Great Casterton CE Primary is its own admitting authority, as part of the Rutland Learning Trust, and applications for an In-Year Admission must be submitted directly to the Admissions Office based at Cottesmore Academy, Kendrew Barracks. While we are currently in consultation regarding our Admissions Policy, In-Year admissions will be addressed using the RCC policy below. To make an application, please use the form below and send to the address on the last page of the application form.
