Peak Dale Primary School

Admission Arrangements

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


The Local Education Authority is required to co-ordinate admissions to all Derbyshire primary, infant and junior schools. Essentially the Authority acts as a ‘clearing house’ for all admissions and enables parents to express a preference for one, two or three schools and to place those preferences in rank order. Parents must make their application direct to the LEA. Further details are available at:

The school operates the standard Derbyshire pattern of admission to full-time infant education. Children who attend Peak Dale Pre-School visit us with playgroup staff to familiarise themselves with the staff and environment before their admission to school. Parents also have an opportunity to visit the school and talk to staff. There is a carefully planned induction programme to aid transition which includes experiencing a lunch-time in school. Children who do not attend Peak Dale Pre-School are warmly invited on our induction days.
