My child will start in Reception in September 2022.

At Cranfield we are supported in our admissions into Early Years Foundation Stage (Reception) for the following September by Central Bedfordshire Council.  To apply for a place at Cranfield for your child who will reach school age September 2022, please go the Central Bedfordshire Council website and search for School Admissions.  Follow the link for ‘Starting School’ and the instructions to apply online for a place.  If you have any queries, please either contact Central Bedfordshire Admissions on the telephone number provided on the website or our school office on 01234 750261.  Please note that there is a deadline for completion of applications and any applications submitted after the date stated on Central Bedfordshire’s website will be classed as a late application.

Our Admissions Policy for September 2022 can be viewed by clicking here.

If the number of applications made exceeds the numbers of places we have in Reception, there may be a waiting list in operation.  The waiting list will be based on our Admissions Policy and time of application.

We are delighted you have chosen Cranfield Church of England Academy as the start of your child’s educational journey. We look forward to welcoming both you and your child to Cranfield!   We will be in touch for our first Parents’ Workshop on ‘Starting in Early Years' in June.
