Park View Primary School admission procedures.

Children that become age 4 between 1st September and 31st August will be eligible to start in reception class at primary school in the following September.
Applying for a place in a Bury school is now done online. Park View Primary School is bound by the admissions criteria set by Bury. Any children who live in a
neighbouring authority must apply through their own authority’s system. The neighbouring authority will then liaise with Bury. If you require help with the 
process, or do not have a computer at home, please contact our school and we will be happy to assist you. It would also help if you let our school know that you intend to apply.


This will allow us to:

  • Send Letters to parents on school list inviting them to any Open Days.
  • Invite you to the Induction Meeting in the Summer Term for the parents of all new Reception children.
  • After places are allocated, invite the children to visit our school.

Transition to High School

The transition of our children to High School is a very important stage in our children’s school life.

All high schools organise Open Days and evenings plus formal transition days during the summer.  Staff from each High school will also visit our children at Park View Primary School during the summer term as they ‘get to know them.’ They will also liaise with key staff in school in support of the transition process.

Where our staff or parents feel their child may need extra support with the transition process in terms of greater familiarisation with the layout of the building, routines and relationships, extra sessions are planned in liaison with the chosen High School.
