School Admissions

Our school is an academy within Tudhoe Learning Trust. The Trust is the Admissions Authority for all schools within the Trust and has determined to operate admissions on the same basis as that used by Durham Local Authority.

Tudhoe Colliery Primary operates within an equal preference scheme and welcomes all children.

Tudhoe Colliery Primary is a single form entry school and has an admission limit of 30 pupils per year group from reception to Year 6.

Application Procedure

Please refer to the Durham County Council website for information regarding the admission process and procedures for your child – Primary Admissions

SEND Admissions

For information on the admission of pupils with a disability, please visit the School Admissions section of our website and view the Accessibility Plan in our School Policies section.

Children and young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan 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.

For Children and young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan the SEN team can be contacted on 03000 265878.

The School Places and Admissions Team can be contacted on 03000 265 896 or by clicking on this link to the Durham County Council School Places and Admissions Team website

If you would like to discuss your child’s SEN in more detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
