Admissions at Darley Community Primary School 

The local education authority sets our admissions policy and allocates places.  Please visit the website below for information on how places are allocated or telephone 01609 533679 for detailed information about admissions.





At Darley our children are taught in two classes:

Ribble Class     EYFS and Years 1 & 2 (4, 5, 6 and 7 year olds)

Swale Class      Years 3, 4,5 and 6 (7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 year olds)


Within each class, children may sometimes be taught as a whole class; in groups according to activities or ability and as individuals. The staff carefully plan their teaching according to the National Curriculum, National Literacy Strategy and the National Numeracy Strategy requirements, to ensure a breadth and balance in the curriculum and a progression in learning. 

You will receive a Guide for parents from NYCC, Children and Young People’s Service, in the academic year before your child is due to start school. This will tell you all you have to do.  All admissions are now handled online and it is imperative that you submit your application in line with the deadlines set each year by the admissions authority.  If you need help accessing a computer to apply online or you prefer a paper copy of the application either in English or an alternative language / Braille please telephone 01609 532917 or email:
