For a funded place, most children will start in September, but additional children may be admitted in January and April if there are still spaces available. Two-year-olds may take up a place as soon as a space is available anytime throughout the year.

Primary School

At Rollesby Primary School, we have four classes covering 130 pupils in mixed age ranges.

We supplement this learning with interventions where they are needed to ensure everyone’s individual learning needs are catered for.



Towards the end of the summer term all new intake children have the opportunity to spend two days at the school: meeting teachers, looking around the school and working on challenges in preparation for the September transfer. If you are moving into the area and want to send your child to Rollesby Primary School, please contact the office on 01493 740270. You will be given the opportunity to view the school, complete admissions documents and receive a prospectus.

The school’s admission limit for 2023/24 agreed with the Children’s Services, is 15 children per class. In the event of over subscription, preference will be given to children living nearer to the school according to the following criteria, in order of priority.
