Meadow Green admits children aged between 3-11 years of age.The number of pupils that may be admitted to a school in the relevant year group is known as the Published Admission Number (PAN). Our PAN is 45 pupils. Admission into the Foundation Stage occurs at the start of each academic year in the September after a child’s third birthday for admission into Foundation Stage 1 (Nursery) and the September after their fourth birthday for admission into Foundation Stage 2 (Reception). We do also offer additional starting sessions in the January and April after a child's third birthday, where there are spaces available within the Nursery Unit.
Please note that admission arrangements for Reception age children is coordinated by Worcestershire Local Authority and as such applications and offers of places are not controlled by the school. Parents of children whose home authority is other than Worcestershire should apply through their school admissions service (ie, who you pay council tax to).
All parents and carers must be made aware that a place in the nursery does not guarantee a place in the school and that they must still go through the Worcestershire Children First admissions procedure when the child reaches school age to enter Reception.

Applications for admission to Meadow Green Primary School, other than at start of Reception or to transfer your child from a different school, parents should at the earliest opportunity either enquire about spaces within the relevant year groups at schools in the local area or contact the Local Authority School Admissions and Transfers Section . Where there are no spaces currently available, a waiting list is maintained by Worcestershire School Admissions team. Please be aware that a school waiting list is an active document. As parents request for their children to be included on the list the position of an individual child already on the list can change. A waiting list does not give priority based simply on the date an application was added to the list.
