Admission to the Reception Class

The standard number of children that may be admitted to our Reception class each year is 30.  All applications to the Reception class should be made via the Vale of Glamorgan local authority online application service. This is quick and easy to use, and makes it much easier for parents to apply.  Before registering and making an on-line application, you must register using a valid e-mail address.  The council's online Admissions page on their website contains instructions on how to do this at:

If you do not have internet access, you may request a hard copy of the guide from the council or our school. Please see application deadlines and notification dates below.  Please refer to our school admissions policy below for information about the oversubscription criteria used to offer places when classes are oversubscribed.  

Admission to the Nursery Classes

Llansannor & Llanharry CiW Primary School offers part-time Nursery places five mornings and five afternoons each week. Children are admitted to the morning nursery class in the autumn term of the academic year of their fourth birthday. (The academic year runs from 1st September to 31st August.)


We also provide a rising 3’s afternoon Nursery class to which pupils are admitted normally at the beginning of the half term following their 3rd birthday. The school admits up to 30 nursery pupils each year in each class. In the event of more than 30 applications for nursery places, the same oversubscription criteria would be applied as set out for the allocation of places in the Reception class.  


Applications for Nursery places should be submitted directly to the school by the last school day before the February half term break. Parents will be notified of the decision on the last day of the spring term, prior to the Easter break. As in all schools, children who are admitted to our nursery classes will not have an automatic right of admission to full time education at our school. A child’s name can be entered onto the waiting list at any age from birth to school age, but no guarantee of a place can be given. Please apply using the application form below.

As a Voluntary Aided Church in Wales primary school, our governors form the school's Admissions Authority and make decisions on applications received.  However, we are an inclusive community school at the heart and we welcome applications for pupils from neighbouring local authorities and of different or no faith.


The first priority of the Governors, as the Admissions Authority, is to admit the children of families who choose to have their children educated within a Christian ethos, emphasising the importance of prayer, worship and Christian teaching.  This is reflected in the whole life of the school.  With this in mind, if the school is oversubscribed, priority will be given to the children of families who can demonstrate this through their active involvement in a Christian community.  Please refer to our Admissions policy via the link below, for the full oversubscription criteria used by our school.
