F2, KS1 and KS2 Applications
Leicester City Council Children and Young People’s Services is the admissions authority for F2, KS1 and KS2 pupils for Evington Valley Primary. The LA provides a booklet each year with guidance and a timetable for the process.

F1 Applications
The Governing Body of Evington Valley Primary is the admissions authority for F1 pupils. The school holds a list of names of pupils whose parents express an interest in their child attending Evington Valley Primary’s F1 unit.

All three and four year olds are entitled to 15 hours of free nursery education for 38 weeks of the year. This applies until they reach compulsory school age (the term following their fifth birthday).

We encourage parents to express their interest in our F1 Unit at Evington Valley Primary School as early as possible by registering their child following the child’s second birthday. Please come into the School Office, preferably on a Monday or Tuesday, to meet with the Attendance & Welfare Officer. You will be asked to provide details of your child’s name, date of birth, home address and telephone contact number/s; any additional learning or medical needs.

For children born between 1st September 2014 and 31st August 2015 Evington Valley can offer a free part-time place for 3 hours per day (either morning or afternoon) in Foundation Stage 1 from September 2018.

All children on the school’s waiting list will be sent an application form and a copy of the Admissions policy week beginning Monday 22nd January 2018. Application forms will be available in the school office from this date and this information will be advertised locally.
