School Admissions & Transport


Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important things that you will do.  We hope that Crook Primary School is the school that you choose for your child and that you will experience a happy partnership with us so your child leaves ready to face the challenge of secondary school with confidence.

We are committed to meeting the needs of all children including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. We would ask parents to discuss the identified needs with the school prior to starting so that appropriate intervention and support can be planned and implemented. Advice from the LA or other agencies may be requested to ensure any the school can meet any needs appropriately.

We follow the Durham Local Authority Policy for admissions. 
If you would like to join our school, please contact School Admissions at County Hall in Durham.

Applying for a school place if your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan or a Statement of SEN

 Children and young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan (or Statement of Special Education Needs) follow a different admission and transfer process for a new school. Please continue to complete Durham County Council's parental preference form, as part of the admission process to a new school. You continue to have a right to request a particular school and this will be considered alongside the information that we have about your child's special educational needs. The information would have been provided as part of the Education, Health and Care assessment or following the review meeting.
