Admissions

Nursery

Parents may register a child, with the school, when he/she has reached the age of two years. Children are admitted to the Nursery/Foundation Stage 1 after their 3rd birthday, if spaces are available. Admission to the Nursery does not guarantee a place in the main school (Foundation Stage 2) at the age of 4 years.
If your child is under 3 please bring their birth certificate to the school office where they will be placed onto the nursery waiting list.
When a place becomes available you will be contacted by the school.
Admission arrangements for Foundation Stage 2 are in line with those of the Local Authority.
The Local Authority allocates places on a priority basis:
  1. Children living in the school priority area.
  2. Children living outside the area with brothers and sisters at the school.
  3. Children living outside the priority area if places are available.

Admissions Policy Consultation for 2021 for Abbey Mead Primary Academy

Having joined TMET (The Mead Educational Trust) in September 2019, Abbey Mead Primary Academy is its own admissions authority and as such has to establish its own admissions arrangements. The proposed admissions policy for the 2021/22 academic year is presented here. The Academy has decided to remain part of the Leicester City admissions process and, therefore, the Local Authority administers all admissions to the Academy.

The policy is in line with the admissions criteria that Leicester City Council uses for primary schools.

The consultation period runs from 21 October 2019 to 2 December 2019 and allows anyone with an interest (for example parents, other schools and the local community) to comment about the proposed 2021/22 admission arrangements. You can comment by:

  • Writing to: Cathy Brown, The Mead Educational Trust, The Mead Centre, 343 Gipsy Lane, Leicester LE4 9DD
  • Emailing: [email protected]

Please indicate which Academy you are commenting on.
