Fairfield Primary Academy observes local authority admissions protocols, with priority given to children with special educational needs or additional support requirements; and increasingly, from within the broader Spencer family of schools.

Information on applying for a place through the Nottinghamshire County Council’s Admissions Scheme is available here.

A copy of the school Admissions Policies are available here and a catchment area map here.

The Admissions Policy includes detailed information on the applications process; the special consideration given to applications on behalf of children with special education needs and support requirements; and the criteria used when the school is over-subscribed.
