All 4 year old children can start Netherthorpe Primary School, full or part-time, in the September following their 4th birthday. Parents may defer entry to school until compulsory school age if they wish, i.e. the term after the child’s 5th birthday, within the same academic year, at the point they judge their child to be ready to start school. 
Attendance at the school’s nursery does not guarantee admission to the school and a school place in Reception must be applied for through the pupil admission team of Sheffield City Council.
Netherthorpe Primary School will endeavour to learn and understand the needs of each child through transition meetings prior to the child starting school. Parents are invited to make an appointment with the Headteacher to discuss their child’s needs and seek advice about the option most suitable for their child.
