Admissions Arrangements

Burlington Infant School is a County Infant Co-educational school, with 240 children on roll. Our admission limit for each year group is 80 pupils. Children are admitted to the school according to the published criteria contained in ‘East Riding of Yorkshire Council Schools: A Guide for Parents.’

Application forms are available from the Admissions Team at County Hall (Tel 01482 392131). Parents can also get detailed admisions information and apply for a school place online using the electronic form on the council’s website;

You are very welcome to look round the school and see us in action before making a decision whether to apply for a place. For an appointment, please telephone the School Office on 01262 673858.

Admissions into Reception

Children are admitted into school in the September of the year they reach five. Parents are allocated a place by the local authority the previous April and then invited to a ‘Welcome Meeting’ at the school during June/July.

Entry into Reception is done on a staggered basis in the first few weeks of September, with the children attending either morning or afternoon sessions initially, to help the children have a happy, secure start. If you do not feel your child is ready for a full time place after these first few weeks, we will accommodate individual requests for a more flexible arrangement, particularly for the younger summer born children.

Admissions into Year 1 and Year 2

If your child is currently at another school but you would like to transfer them, you are welcome to ring the school to discuss this. You will need to apply for a place through Admissions by filling in an In -Year Transfer Application Form.

Transfer of Year 2 Children

The majority of our children transfer to Burlington Junior school at the end of Year 2. Please note, however, you must apply for a place at the Junior School through Admissions again.
