Admission to Reception (F2) to Year 6 at Mapperley Plains Primary School is managed by Nottinghamshire County Council Central Admission Team who are contactable on 0300 500 8080.

Admission to Reception, September 2023
Children who are 5 years old between 1st September 2023 and 31st August 2024 and require a school place for September 2023, need to apply before the closing in January 2023.  You can make an application from November 2023.  

All known Nottinghamshire children eligible to apply will have been sent an application pack from Nottinghamshire County Council.  Children who live outside of Nottinghamshire should contact their local authority for information about applying.

For further information on how to apply and a wide range of useful information regarding the admission process, please visit the Nottinghamshire County Council website here.

Admission to Nursery (Foundation 1)
We determine our own admissions for entry to our Nursery.  Places in F1 can be offered the term after a child's 3rd birthday.  All sessions are term time only, following the same term dates as school.  Children progress to full time education during the academic year in which their 5th birthday falls.

Please see below an Application Form for Nursery (Foundation 1).  Please complete and return this to the School Office to keep on file.  We will then contact you nearer to the time of admission.

Please note that if your child has a place in F1, this does not guarantee a place in Reception.  Reception places are to be formally applied for as stated above.
