In Year Admissions

Manor Lodge Community Primary School participates in the Local Authority’s Co-ordinated Admission Scheme for in-year admissions. If a parent of a child on our roll wishes to apply for a transfer to another school, they must obtain a transfer form from the school for completion of Section 2.


The application must then be sent to the Local Authority which will process the application on the parent’s behalf.


The Local Authority will confirm the outcome of the application in writing within 15 school days. If the application is refused, the Local Authority will advise on the statutory appeal procedure. Details of the Co-ordinated Admission Scheme and how in-year applications are managed can be seen at

Pupil Admission Numbers 24-25

The Pupils Admission Number (PAN)  for September 2024/25 is 60 children.
In addition, the school also has an Integrated Resource that can accommodate 10 pupils which is currently full. 

From September 2024, our school will begin to expand on the way to becoming a 2-form entry primary school with each year group consisting of 60 pupils. This will be a gradual process and will be completed by 2030 when our September 2024 intake reach year 6.




If your child is allocated a place at Manor Lodge, you will receive a letter from the admission department informing you of this. As soon as you receive this you should make contact with us either by telephone or by coming in-person to the main school office on Manor Lane, S2 1UF.

At the same time, the school is also sent an allocation notice and once we have this Mrs Hoyland will contact you to arrange an admission meeting and tour of the school.


If you are allocated a place at Manor Lodge but do not want your child to attend here, you have the right of appeal. Information on how to do this should be included in the allocation letter you received. It is important that you still contact us to tell us you do not want the place for your child.

In most cases, you will be expected to bring your child to our school until the appeal process is complete. If you choose not to do this your child will be referred to the Children Missing Education Team (CME).


If you have any further questions relating to admission at Manor Lodge, please call the school office on (0114) 2725054 and arrange an appointment to speak to Mrs Hoyland.
