Applications for primary school places are managed centrally by Sheffield Local Authority, not by staff at the school.
Full details about the admissions, application and appeals process for Sheffield schools can be found on the Sheffield City Council website via the link below. Please note that the closing date for admissions into the 2024/25 Reception class is 15th January 2024.

The application window closes in January for starting school the following September. In April, you are informed about your child's allocated school place. This may or may not be one of your three preferences.
By law a child must be in full-time education from the beginning of the term after their 5th birthday but parents do have some flexibility in deciding when their child will start Reception.
The options are as follows:
Once pupils are allocated places at Shooters Grove, we will contact you about their transition into school.
School entry applications are usually for Reception, Junior and Year 7. You can apply for up to three schools.
If you want to apply for a school place outside normal school entry years you can apply for a transfer to another school.
Any parent wishing to apply for a transfer must obtain a Common Transfer Form from their current school.
The current school must complete Section 2 and send the application to the Admissions Team by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by post:
Floor 5, West Wing
They will manage your application on your behalf, and they aim to inform you of the decision for the school you have applied for within 15 school days.
If it is not possible to offer a place at any of your preferred schools, they will give you advice on the statutory appeal procedure.
