To sign up your child to attend Caedmon Primary School, please contact the school on (01642) 453187 and we will be very happy to answer questions and organise a visit for you if you would like one.
As Caedmon Primary School is an academy, and a member of Steel River Academy Trust, the Trust is now the admission authority for the school. The Admissions Policy can be found on the Steel River Academy website.
We have some spaces in every year group and take in-year admissions – we can start your child very quickly. If you wish to join our school mid-year, please contact Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council School Admissions on (01642) 837740. Please contact us to arrange a visit and we will happily answer any questions that you may have.
We have a 39 place morning nursery.

Children are admitted from their third birthday. Currently, we have Nursery spaces. Why not come for a visit? We offer ‘stay and play’ afternoons too, so that parents and children can visit, have fun, meet the staff and enjoy some refreshments. Please contact us to find out when our next session is.
Prior to admission, we always offer a visit where parents and children can have a look around and meet the staff.
When the nursery is full a waiting list is maintained by Caedmon Primary School. If a place becomes available, it is offered based on the following criteria:
- Children who are cared for by the Local Authority.
- The child is a permanent resident in the admission zone for Caedmon Primary School.
- The child lives out of the admission zone for Caedmon Primary School, but has brothers or sisters already in Caedmon Primary School.
- The child lives out of the admission zone for Caedmon Primary School.
In the event of a tie break for criteria 2, 3 or 4, the oldest child in each category would be given priority.
Due to the low birth rate, we are very likely to have spaces in our reception class but do need to remind parents that there is no guarantee that all children will automatically be given a place in reception and we encourage you to fill in the forms to apply.
Children transfer from nursery to reception each autumn term. All places are allocated by the Local Authority prior to starting. Parents must make a formal application and the criteria above are used to prioritise the allocation of places.
We are keen to ensure that the transition is as smooth as possible. There is a planned programme of visits to the reception class to play and enjoy storytime, opportunities to take part in small assemblies, school lunchtimes and other general school routines. Parents will be invited to a number of short meetings to share information before their children start in reception. These visits are very helpful to both parents, children and staff – we want to make sure your child settles quickly and easily into their new class.
