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, they will begin school on a phased basis.

Parents of new Nursery children will receive a home visit by staff prior to children starting. This is an opportunity for parents to share any important information about their child.  


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 or by clicking the link below:

Accessibility Plan

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.
