If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below. 

If you would like to visit the school, please make an appointment with the school office to meet with the Head teacher, Mrs. Halliday.


Academies including Free School Academies are publicly funded independent schools with sponsors from the private or voluntary sectors or from churches or other faith groups.


The Trust Board is responsible for the strategic leadership of the school and for the admission of pupils.


Normal year of entry (Reception Year) admissions to Elm Tree Primary School are coordinated by the local authority and the governing body must use the published admission rules to prioritise applications. These admissions applications are completed via Suffolk County Council website, please see the links below.


Elm Tree is an own admission authority school for all other in year admissions, this means if you wish your child to join our school at any point other than when they start school in the Reception year. Therefore there is requirement under paragraph 2.17 of the School Admissions Code to make clear in our admission arrangements the process for requesting admission out of the normal age range.  


“We will consider all requests to place children outside of their normal age group including summer born and premature children in line with the requirements of paragraph 2.17 to 2.17B of the School Admissions Code”
