Prospective parents are always encouraged to come and visit our school.
Children are eligible for admission to the school in the September of the school year in which they become eight. The Authority has agreed with the governors to allocate a maximum of 90 places in each year group. Children who live in the catchment area will always be given priority. All children who attend Banks Lane Infant School are guaranteed a place in the Junior School.
If your child is not given a place at our school and you wish to appeal, the Authority has devised an appeals procedure that is set down in the booklet, “Primary Education in Stockport” obtainable from the office and their policy can be viewed at www.stockport.gov.uk/schooladmissions.
Children with a disability will be admitted using exactly the same process for admission as all other children as set down in the authority’s policy, which complies with the Disability Discrimination Act 1995.
The school provides ramped access to the school at various points. We have separate accessible toilet facilities for boys and girls and some facilities for physiotherapy.
There are disabled parking facilities adjacent to one of the ramped access points. A wheelchair lift provides access to the dining room for anyone needing wheelchair access.
The school aims to continue to improve accessibility and facilities for disabled people. The accessibility plan can be viewed on request.
