Meadowside Academy has one intake in September, each year for children whose fifth birthday falls between 1 September and 31 August inclusive.  We also accept children mid-year who are moving into the area or changing school, dependent on current numbers and spaces within year groups.

Any parents wishing to consider Meadowside Academy are encouraged to contact the Academy on   01423 866 207 or by email: to arrange to visit and look around.  Applications should then be made by completing a preference form which is available online at School admissions | North Yorkshire County Council. All admissions to school must be authorised by the Local Authority.

For September entry into Reception Class, detailed guidance can be found on the NYCC website:  School admissions | North Yorkshire County Council

Parents of Reception aged children are notified by the Local Authority towards the end of the previous April to confirm the allocation of a place for September.
