Admission to SPS
As a Local Authority school allocation of places, for children in YrR to Y6 are dealt with by Bristol City Council's School Admissions Department. You are very welcome to initially make contact with school and we can advise you on the procedure for registering your interest or securing a place at SPS.
All admissions and allocation of places to the Nursery class at Shirehampton Primary School have been delegated by Bristol City Council’s Children and Young People’s Services Admissions Department to the school’s Governing Body. It is useful for parents to note that our Nursery offers both 15 hour and 30 hour places. Please see the school’s Childcare (U3s and Nursery) Admission policy.
If you are interested in a place at our Under 3s provision, please complete an application form and return it to the school.
If you are interested in a place in our Nursery, please complete an registration form and return it to school. If your child is entitled to the 30 hour offer please also complete a declaration form (30 hours) and, again, return it to school. If you need to find your 30 hours code, click here.
The Department of Education have launched some brilliant videos for parents about 30 hours free childcare and tax free childcare which explain how to apply for these entitlements and can be found on the Bristol City Council website.
The video about tax free childcare applies to every working family who pays for childcare for a child of any age up to 11 years old.
The video about 30 hours free childcare applies to every working family of 3 and 4 year olds. The link includes an overview video and 6 case studies.

The school and its Governors have no input or influence over which pupils are offered places in YrR, Y1 or Y2.
