To apply for a place at our school there is a process called "Admissions".


If you are interested in your child joining us at Egginton Primary School, then simply contact us at the school via the details at the foot of this page and we can arrange for you to visit the school to meet with the Headteacher and have a look around.

Whilst the school is small and the number of places sometimes limited, we do often have spaces available in all year groups and are happy for your child to join us part way through the academic year.

Children are admitted according to Derbyshire County Council Education Authority's general arrangements. Full details of admission arrangements are published in the DCC handbook “How to apply for a place at Primary School – A guide for parents”.

The average number of children on roll is 70. The maximum admission number during the current year is normally 10.


Parents must arrange for their child to start school full-time in the academic year (September to September) of their fifth birthday.

All admission procedures are handled by the Children and Younger Adults Department, Admissions and Appeals Team, St. Helena Centre, Sheffield Road, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, S41 7LU, tel: 01629 537479.

Sometimes more applications are received than there are places available, then priority will be given to children:-

  • who live within the normal area served by the school, which is Egginton Parish.

  • not living in the normal area served by the school but have brothers or sisters attending the school at the time of admission.

  • whose parents have requested a place.
