Carlton Miniott, Thirsk, North Yorkshire, YO7 4NJ

Mr S Crocker

Due to the hot weather, Sports Day will now take place on Thursday 21st July at 1.45pm.


North Yorkshire County Council’s admission policy allows schools to admit in September any child who will be five during the academic year. It is the policy of the Governors of this school to admit at the beginning of the Autumn Term, all children who will be five during the school year.

We welcome children living outside the local area to the school but in the event of more applications being made than places available (30 in the coming year) the parents/carers of these children will need to apply to the Local Authority.

Admission Procedure

Parents/carers wishing to enrol their children for admission to this school are requested to write to the Headteacher or telephone the school secretary with the relevant details, well in advance of the child’s expected entry. The school requires parents/carers to complete an admissions form which is available from the Local Authority website

Further guidance for separated families, looked after children, social, medical or special educational needs, Armed Forces families, and more can be found at

The Local Authority also requires all parents/carers of Reception children to complete a Parental Preference form regardless of whether or not they are resident in the school’s catchment area. Prospective parents/carers and children are warmly invited to make an appointment to visit the school.

Parents/carers of reception children will be invited to a meeting in school during the term before admission. Also during the half term prior to entry children are invited to spend two mornings in the Reception Class and join in the activities. During the preliminary visit parents/carers and children may sample a school meal. Where possible, the class teacher will visit children in their Nursery placements during the summer term before starting school.

Our admission arrangements to school are managed by North Yorkshire County Council in line with the School Admissions Code and Fairness Access Protocols.

The Admissions Policy for Carlton Miniott Primary Academy can be found here.

Applying for an in-year place

An in-year application can be made at any time of the year. You can only apply up to a term in advance of the date you want the school place. The online form will only allow you to apply for the year group your child should be in according to your child's date of birth.

North Yorkshire will start working on applications around six weeks prior to your requested start date and our  aim to process applications within 20 school days after that. However, if you apply very early, this may not apply as we can only start processing applications towards the end of term, as follows:
