If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below. There is also a link to 'Lancashire County Council' website where you can find full admission details for Community schools such as ours as well as Voluntary Aided and Foundation schools. Admissions to our school are dealt with by the 'Pupil Access Team' at LCC. Admissions are now 'online'.
We usually hold an Open Morning every Autumn so that prospective parents can come and have a look around our lovely school and “see us in action”. We are waiting updates regarding the Covid-19 Pandemic with regard to October 2021 but envisage an Open Morning will be held in school in some form.
Once your child has gained at place at Pendle, we will invite you to a short evening meeting for parents when you will meet other 'new' parents and also the staff who will teach and support your child in the Reception classes and into Key Stage 1.
We then hold sessions during the summer term when you and your child can come to school to get to know us and all the other new Reception pupils. You will stay with your child for the session to ensure they are happy. The Deputy Headteacher (also one of the Reception class teachers) also visits as many children as possible in their Nursery setting.
When September comes, Reception children start school in the first week , either in the morning or afternoon session , allowing the staff and children to get to know each other really well. All children then start the second week of school full time.
Please do not hesitate to ring school should you have any concerns or questions about admission arrangements.
