Reception and Years 1 to 4


Children who are four by the 31st August 2017  are eligible to start full time education in Reception, September 2017.  All admissions to Reception are dealt with by the Local Authority. Admission arrangements can be found on the Northumberland County Website. Applications can be made online.

New Hartley has a planned admission number of 26 in each year group. Once a class reaches that number a place can only be granted through the Local Authority appeals process.

New Hartley was built in 1982 and not designed for large numbers in classrooms. Four of our classrrom spaces are less then 50 square metres. Increasing the number of children in these areas creates concern with regard to health and safety and the quality of education. 


Based on the current roll, our capicity is as follows:

Reception - 24

Year 1- 30

Year 2 - 24

Year 3 - 21

Year 4 - 24
