Admission Arrangements

Parents have a legal right to express a preference for which school they want their child to attend. This is not the same as being able to choose but means that if a parent expresses a preference for a particular school and there are places available, then a place should be offered at that school.

However, in law, there is no automatic right to place a child in any particular school and it may not always be possible to offer a place at a preferred school. When applying for a school place you must apply through the council covering the area in which you live, which may not be the same as where the school is.



Elton Church of England Primary School is a very small school in the heart of Derbyshire. If you would like to visit, please ring the school office or email us. You are always welcome. Follow us on twitter: @elton_school
