Below you will find information about admissions to our Nursery (controlled by school) and to the rest of our school (controlled by the Local Authority).


The Local Authority allows us to manage our own admissions into our Nursery.

Children attend Nursery for fifteen hours per week, with each session lasting three hours (8.45am–11.45am or 12.30pm–3.30pm).

Our Nursery Admissions Policy can be accessed by clicking here.

For more information, please speak to Mrs Corr (Clavering's Assistant Headteacher and Foundation Stage Coordinator).


Hartlepool Local Authority has sole responsibility for admissions into every full time year group, i.e. for every year group from Reception to Year 6.

In-Year Admissions

Hartlepool Council Admissions Team co-ordinate in-year admissions for all primary and secondary schools within the town. An in-year admission is when a parent wishes to apply for a place at a school that is not during normal rounds of entry (e.g. Reception – starting primary school or Year 7 – moving from primary to secondary school).
