All places at Harlow Green Community Primary School are allocated in accordance with the Local Authority (LA) admissions policy. This is published annually in the Gateshead LA Information for Parents Booklet, which is made available to parents prior to admission. All information can and the online application process can be found by clicking here.
As part of the induction process, parental meetings are held during the summer term for pupils about to enrol for Nursery and for Reception classes.
During the autumn term, nursery pupils have a preliminary visit. This is followed by attendance on a short session time that is extended to full time over the following weeks. Depending on the availability of places, children who attain the age of three years during the year are admitted at termly intervals following their third birthday.
For admission to the Reception class, children attend for half days, either mornings or afternoons, for one week. This allows children to get used to the routines as well as providing assessment time for the staff. From the second week, all children attend full time, from 9.00am until 3.20pm and may stay for lunch, 12.00pm until 1.00pm if they wish. Should any difficulties arise because of this procedure then the school endeavours to resolve the difficulties with the parents concerned.
