We hold open days for prospective new families (Reception Year admissions) in October of each year; please check here, as well as local press for details in September.

Pupil Admission Number (PAN): 90 per year
Application for a place in reception classes September 2019 is for children born between 1st September 2014 and 31st August 2015.
Parents are entitled to defer their child’s admission or request that their child attend on a part-time basis. By law, children must start statutory education full-time no later than the beginning of the term following their fifth birthday, and must be offered a full-time place at a school from September 2019.
Following a consultation regarding the Pupil Admission Numbers (PAN) for Cliff Park Infant School, in early 2018, East Anglia Schools Trust (the previous MAT for Ormiston Cliff Park Infant Academy) reached the decision that the school PAN for September 2019 would be set at 90 pupils. From 1st December 2018 onwards, Ormiston Academies Trust is the Admissions Authority for Ormiston Cliff Park Infant Academy.

A move to a different school at any time other than admission to reception, transfer to junior or transfer to secondary is known as an ‘in-year transfer’. This could be a move between Norfolk schools or a move to a Norfolk school from a school in a different area.
Norfolk County Council organise in-year school transfers and admissions. Please see the Norfolk County Council ‘Moving schools during the school year’ webpage here https://www.norfolk.gov.uk/education-and-learning/schools/school-admissions/moving-schools
If you want to transfer to a school that is not in Norfolk you will need to contact your new local authority to ask about their admissions process. Find your new local authority using the Government’s local council finder here https://www.gov.uk/find-local-council
