Please find below a quick guide of how to apply for places at Brampton Ellis Primary School, Rotherham. Please note (as outlined below) that the application process differs for Foundation Stage 1 (Nursery) and from Foundation 2 to Year 6.
Admissions to school at Foundation Stage 1 (Nursery)
Brampton Ellis Primary School provides a Foundation Stage 1 (Nursery) facility at our Key Stage 1 site either on a part time basis where children attend a three-hour morning or afternoon session or for 30 hours a week (if eligible). Applications for places at our nursery facility are handled and processed directly by the school in line with the Rotherham MBC Children and Young People’s Services admissions policy.
Children's names can be placed on our waiting list from birth, and places are offered usually in the September after the child turns 3 years of age. To register interest for places in our Nursery please either call the school office or complete and return the following "Nursery Application Form". As places become available we will contact people on the waiting list with a view to completing the application process.
Please note that there is no automatic transfer between Foundation Stage 1 (Nursery) and Foundation Stage 2 therefore securing a place in our Nursery does not guarantee a place in our school. Therefore all parents must submit an application for a full time place at school.
Admissions to school from Foundation 2
Brampton Ellis Primary School is a school that follows the policies of Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (RMBC) Children and Young People’s Services. All admissions to school from Foundation 2 are governed by the admissions policy of the local authority as detailed in the Admission to Primary School Booklet – 2024/25. Children start school in the autumn term of the school year in which they turn five years old.
