If you would like to visit the school before requesting a placement for your child with the Local Authority Admissions Team, please make an appointment with the office, who will be happy to show you around.
All reception class and in-year admissions are dealt with centrally via Derby City Council:
If you want to apply for a school place you can:
apply online: https://remote.derby.gov.uk/Enrol_live/website/,
apply by phone on 01332 642617 – this will take around 10 minutes and you will need to know the name of the school you are applying to
apply using a paper form – telephone 01332 642730 to ask for a form.
Once the school is informed by the Local Authority of the offer of a placement, we will then contact you to arrange a start date.
Names are accepted for our Nursery waiting list from when a child is born. Children are offered places in the Nursery Class for either 5 mornings or 5 afternoons in the school term following their 3rd birthday
Children are eligible for entry into the Reception class in September of the school year in which they are 5 years old. A meeting for all parents offered places by the admissions team is held at the school in June/July, prior to admission in September. If your child attends our Nursery, you will automatically receive an application pack from the admissions team when the admission process commences.
Pupils entering year 6 will automatically receive an application pack from the Education Service requesting your secondary school preference application form. Pupils from Roe Farm generally feed into da Vinci Academy or Lees Brook, however sometimes pupils will attend Landau Forte, West Park or other secondary schools.
An Admissions Handbook produced by Derby City Council outlining the admissions procedure, is available on the Derby City Council Website.
