Prospective parents are invited to visit the school during the autumn term before the in-take year, to see the school in action. All Reception children are admitted during the first week of the autumn term in September.    

Parents are informed of the admission arrangements in some detail during visits to the school in the summer term. There is an opportunity during this term for children to visit their new class and teacher and for parents to meet staff and children, view the school, find out about our philosophy and organisation and raise any questions.

North Tyneside Admissions Policy

Percy Main admits children from the Percy Main area and beyond in line with the Local Authority’s general school admissions policy.

This includes:

  1. Children in public care (looked after children).
  2. Pupils who live within the catchment area of the school.
  3. A sibling link - If places remain, priority will be given to pupils with older brothers or sisters who have been attending the school and who will continue to do so on the date of admission.
  4. Any remaining places are allocated to those pupils who live nearest to the school.
