If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below. 

Mandeville Primary School admits pupils to both Nursery and Reception. These two classes are called the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’.


There are six year groups following the Foundation Stage, with each accommodating a single class with the exception of the current Year 5 as Mandeville took an additional cohort in September 2014. School policy is that no more than 30 pupils will be admitted to a single class, however we are dependent on the local authority to manage our admissions.


Each class has a full-time teacher and a learning support assistant is allocated according to the needs of the class. We believe that this system provides the best opportunities for learning for each child.
