Sebert Wood Primary is currently a community school. This means that the school is owned and run by the county council. The county council therefore decides the admissions policy for reception upwards.

All children can attend school full time in the September following their 4th birthday.

Please note that you must apply for a place even if your child is already attending the school nursery.

The published admission number for the school is 60 pupils in each year from Reception – Year 6.
