Primary admissions for September 2023 intake

If your child was born between 1 September 2018 and 31 August 2019, they will be due to start Reception in September 2023. Even if your child currently attends a nursery attached to a school or has a sibling already at the school you must apply for a Reception place.

If you would like to discuss your child joining our Reception and you have not already applied for a place, please get in touch where we will be able to support you. 

Similarly to Nursery admissions, we would welcome all parents looking for a Reception place here at Olympic Primary School to come for a tour where a member of the senior leadership team will show you our high quality Early Years setting and answer any questions that you may have.
