In this area, children enter school in the September of the academic year in which they become five. There is one admissions date per year, early in September (i.e. at the start of the school year).

Visits to the school are welcomed; please telephone the school office and the Admin Team will arrange a mutually convenient day and time for you to visit.

Before you apply you are encouraged to read the School Prospectus and our Admissions Policy available to view or download from this page or in printed format from our office staff.

To apply for a place at Lakenheath Primary, the first step is to register your interest in your child starting the school with Suffolk County Councils Admissions Team.

In the Autumn Term before your child is due to start school, you will receive a pack containing

  • an explanatory letter,
  • a copy of our Admissions Policy,
  • Schools in Suffolk booklet,
  • the School Prospectus
  • CAF1 (Common Application Form)
  • Supplementary Information Form (SIF)

when you complete the forms they need to be returned to the Admissions Team, Endeavour House, 8 Russell Road, Ipswich, Suffolk, IP1 2BX.
