Children are admitted to Reception in the school year (i.e. 1st September-31st August) in which they reach their 5th birthday.  Before they start school parents and children are encouraged to visit school as an opportunity to take a tour and have an informal discussion with the Headteacher and staff. Please contact the school office directly to arrange a visit on 01282 776855. 

We follow all guidance provided to us by Government in relation to COVID19 and this may mean that you will be asked to visit outside the core school hours or to wear a mask, but the school office will update you on any COVID19 restrictions in place at the time of your visit. 

If your child is assigned a place at Padiham Green, we shall invite you to a meeting during the summer term before they are due to start.  The children undertake an induction programme in school during the summer term and are admitted at the beginning of the new academic year.

If you are notified by the Local Authoriy that your child has been awarded a place, it is vital that if any of your contact information changes after the completion of your application that you update school directly. 


As a voluntary controlled primary school, we do not directly deal with our own admissions and this is a process controlled by Lancashire County Council, however, we are always happy to answer any queries or questions you might have. Please follow the link below to gather more information on how and when you can apply for a school place.
