If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of the admission arrangements below. Newport City Council is the admitting authority.
All children resident in Newport are entitled to a free part-time education place in the term after their third birthday. Admission to nursery schools and classes is for a half-day session, either morning or afternoon, 5 days per week.
For children born between 1 September and 31 March (inclusive) this means that they could attend nursery for an additional one or two terms, depending upon the child’s date of birth (see the table below for details). This is commonly known as a Rising 3 place.
Pupils are generally admitted to reception class during the autumn term provided they have reached the age of 4 from the 31st August. Newport City Council is the admitting authority. Our Pupil admission number is 45.
During the Summer Term prior to admission, each parent and child is offered the opportunity to visit the school to meet the Head and the class teacher and to sample life at our school.
Transfer to secondary school occurs at the beginning of the Autumn Term when a pupil has reached the age of eleven. Parents of pupils in the top junior class are asked, each year, to indicate their preference as to which comprehensive school they wish their child to attend. Children at Millbrook Primary School tend to transfer to Newport High School though some have also transferred to other schools such as St Joseph’s High School
Sometimes it occurs that, due to lack of room, parents are unable to send their child to the school of their choice. It is vital that all parents complete applications in a timely manner stating their school of preference.
All admissions are dealt with by Newport City Council which is the admitting authority. Further advice can be sought on Newport City Council’s website.
