Callicroft Primary Academy


Children are admitted to Callicroft Primary Academy in the September after their fourth birthday. Children will be able to start school full time from the beginning of term. We hold meetings with all parents of reception children in the term they start school and the children themselves are invited to spend time in the classroom on at least two occasions before they begin school in September.



If you are considering sending your child to Callicroft, you should contact the school to arrange a visit and find out about the application procedure.  This application form is produced by South Gloucestershire Education Authority (LEA) which has strict admission criteria for the allocation of places to its primary schools.  Information about the criteria for admission, closing dates for applications and about schools within the authority is published annually. Please click on the link below.

Once you have completed the application form it is important to return it to the LEA by the published closing date.  As long as you have complied with this regulation, you will normally be informed whether a place is available for your child in the April before s/he is due to start school.

All other 'In Year' applications need to be made using the Academy Application Form given below.
