The school has adopted the admissions policy of Gateshead Council. A copy of the Primary and Nursery School Admission Policy can be found at the back of this prospectus or in the Local Authority’s Primary Information for Parents booklet or you can obtain a copy from the school office. The normal admission limit for each age group is 60.
If you are choosing the school for your child, we are always happy to meet possible new parents and children. So we can be sure that someone is free to see you, it is best to telephone first. Tel: 0191 4334061. Children can join the reception class at the beginning of the school year in which they will be five. Once a child has a place in a reception class, he/she will begin school on a phased basis.
Parents of new Nursery children are offered the chance of a home visit by staff, when useful pre-entry information can be shared.
At Lingey House Primary School we are committed to providing a fully accessible environment which values and includes all pupils, staff, parents and visitors regardless of their education, physical, social and cultural needs. We are further committed to challenging attitudes about disability and accessibility and to developing a culture of awareness, tolerance and inclusion.
We plan to increase accessibility provision for all pupils, staff, parents and visitors to Lingey House Primary School through our accessibility plan which can be obtained from the Head Teacher.
The Local Authority has made a commitment that wherever possible, children with physical disabilities will be educated in their local primary school. If shown to be necessary, and is practicable to do so, then minor adaptations to the building will be considered by the school and the Local Authority to enable a child to attend their local school. In order that children with disabilities are not disadvantaged, the school liaises with the Local Authority when necessary in order to ensure that adequate provision is made.
