School Admissions

At Castleside Primary school we are committed to meeting the needs of all children including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. 

The admissions process for applications to Year 1 in September 2024 is administered on behalf of the Trust by Durham County Council. Find the Durham County Council admissions portal here.

Full details of the admission arrangements can be found in the Primary and Secondary Admissions brochure produced by Durham County Council and further information can be found in the school Admissions Policy that can be found in the School Policies section of our website.

In Year admissions

Applications for an in-year admission must be made on an NCDAT In-Year Admission Form

The fully completed form must be returned to Strategic Data Manager, c/o New College Durham Academies Trust, Head Office, High Street, Stanley, Co Durham. DH9 0TW (email: admissions@ncdat.org.uk). Please be aware that photographs are not acceptable and will be returned as will partially completed forms.

Further advice and information regarding school admissions is available by emailing admissions@ncdat.org.uk or telephoning 01207 292180.

Applying for a school place if your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan or a Statement of SEN

Children and young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan (or Statement of Special Education Needs) follow a different admission and transfer process for a new school.  Please continue to complete Durham County Council’s parental preference form, as part of the admission process to a new school.  You continue to have a right to request a particular school and this will be considered alongside the information that we have about your child’s special educational needs.  The information would have been provided as part of the Education, Health and Care assessment or following the review meeting. .

If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment with our SENCO  Miss Barrass.
