How to apply for a place at Mortimer Primary School

Applying for nursery

Parents can apply for a place at our nursery from a child’s second birthday. Applications forms are available from the school office.

Applying for a reception place

Parents must apply for a place at our school by filing a Parental Preference Form, these are available from South Tyneside Council.

After completing Parental Preference Forms, children are admitted to our Reception class if they are four years old before 31st August.  They can then be admitted to our Reception classes in September, after an informal parent interview.

All entrants to our classes will be given the chance to visit the school and meet their teacher and the other children.  Meetings for parents are held in the summer term.  In order to make a smooth transition from part time nursery to full time reception class, the new intake attend part time for the first two weeks after the parent interviews.
