Admission to F1
Admissions to F1 are processed through the school. Parents need to complete an Application for Nursery Form, which is available from the school office and return the completed form with their child’s Birth Certificate.
A place is normally three terms attendance, commencing in the Autumn Term one year before entry to reception/Foundation Stage 2.
Children enter Foundation Stage 1 (Nursery) at the beginning of the school year after the child has turned 3.
If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.
At the end of F1, children do not automatically move into F2. You will need to complete the application form below to apply for a place.
Information about Admission to Foundation Stage 2 (Reception)
Children enter Foundation Stage 2 (FS2) at the beginning of the school year in which they are 5. All children start FS2 at the start of the school year in September. All parents, as part of Sheffield Local Authority’s admissions policy have to apply to the Local Authority (LA) for admission to the school of their choice. Parents have to fill in an application form for a place for their child. Places are then allocated by the LA.

Joining the school after September
Sometimes children need to change school at different times because of moving house or other reasons. School places are managed and allocated by the Local Authority, so parents wishing to gain a place at Lower Meadow for their child will need to contact the LA Admissions Team on 0114 2735766.
