Admissions Procedure

We welcome new Reception age children (children turning 5 years old in the school year 1st September 2024 to August 31st 2025) into our stunning school from September 2024. Each September we will welcome a new cohort of Reception children.

Children can enter in-year into any open year group (currently Reception, Year One, Year Two and Year Three only) until we reach our pupil admission number of 60 children. We currently have spaces in our Reception, Year One, Year Two and Year Three cohorts. 

As an Academy we are our own Admissions Body, however we use Reading Council to direct new children to us.

If you wish to attend Green Park Village Primary Academy, please contact and apply to Admissions directly via:

Admissions Consultation

REAch2 Academy Trust (the Trust), as the admission authority for all of its academies as per the admissions code 2021, is consulting on the admission arrangements for all of its schools. It is the responsibility of the Trust to determine the arrangements for all of its schools, ensuring that they are fully compliant with the admissions code 2021 and other statutory legislation, such as the Equalities Act 2010.

On 4 October 2023, the Trust Board approved several variations to the current arrangements, which seek to add clarity to a number of key definitions within the policy. The new policy also includes more information on how parents can access other admissions related information, including in-year admissions, appeals processes, and Fair Access Protocol’s.

The new policies do not propose any change to the school’s existing over-subscription criteria. The new policy seeks to make clear that children within the final category of the over-subscription criteria are ranked by the distance they live from the school. The Trust has therefore re-named this criterion from ‘other children’ to ‘distance’. Children within that criterion will still be ranked in the same way.

You can find the proposed school policy for 2025/2026 by visiting Academy Directory – REAch2 Academy Trust

The consultation will run from 6 December 2023 to 31 January 2024.

We welcome feedback from all stakeholders on the proposed arrangements. Responses to the consultation may be placed by any of the following means: · By email [email protected] · Complete the e-form at
