The Local Authority are the admission officers for our school and are responsible for coordinationg all applications from parents for school places in our catchment area. If you want to apply for an infant, junior or primary school place in Derby, you need to make an application to Derby City Council.
We have a maximum intake of 45 pupils annualy in September. Please note that if your child already attends Foundation Stage 1 at our school this does not automatically give them a place in Foundation Stage 2. You must still apply through the Local Authority for your Foundation Stage 2 place.
If you wish to enquire about an 'in year' place at Homefields Primary, please contact the Local Authority Admission department who will advise you how to apply for any places that may be available.
Please read the Primary Admissions Handbook before making an application, a downloadable version is available from Derby City Council Primary Admissions Team.
