Admission Arrangements

Admission to Etwall Primary School

Parents have a legal right to express a preference for which school they want their child to attend. This is not the same as being able to choose, but means that if a parent expresses a preference for a particular school and there are places available then a place should be offered at that school.
   

However, in law there is no automatic right to place a child in any particular school and it may not be possible to offer a place at the preferred school.
 

To apply for a place at Etwall Primary School you must apply through Derbyshire County Council.  You may telephone them on 01629 537499 or email them at admissions@derbyshire.gov.uk.
 

If you do not live in Derbyshire, you must apply through the council covering the area in which you live.
