All children are admitted in the September of the academic year in which they attain their fifth birthday, on or before the following 31st August. 

Applications for admission to primary schools are made through North Yorkshire County Council - please follow the link below. As a member of the Yorkshire Collaborative Academy Trust (YCAT), we follow the trust-wide admissions policy, which is based upon the North Yorkshire County Council policy.

The YCAT admissions policy can be found below.

If you have a child who is due to start school in September 2024 (or future years), and you have not yet had a chance to visit our school, we are holding Open Days on Tuesday 21 November 2023 and Thursday 23 November 2023 from 1:30 to 2:30pm on both dates. Prospective parents/carers are able to meet staff and take a tour of the school.  If you are new to the school and would like to attend one of our Open Days, it would be helpful if you could confirm your attendance via email to the school office (lothersdale@ycatschools.co.uk) and we look forward to seeing you soon.  Alternatively, if you cannot made either of these dates, please contact the school office to make an appointment.  

We hope that the school's prospectus and visual presentations will give you some insight into life at Lothersdale Primary School.  Mrs Bateman is a very experienced Early Years teacher who is supported by excellent Teaching Assistants; together they will ensure that your child has the best possible introduction to school life.  

Please contact the School Office by telephone on 01535 632510 or by emailing lothersdale@ycatschools.co.uk to ask any further questions regarding admission to the school.

We look forward to welcoming you to Lothersdale Primary School.
