Admission Arrangements


Rhondda Cynon Taff is the admissions authority for Llanhari Primary School. The school follows the LEA Admissions Policy.

All applications for Nursery class places must be made online via the Council’s School Admission Team:, tel:01443 281111.

There is a standard ‘admission number’ established for every school, which limits the annual pupil intake. Llanhari Primary’s standard admission number is 28. Government legislation allows parents to express a preference when selecting a school. A map of the catchment area can be obtained from the council’s admissions team. When more than 28 preferences are expressed for nursery admissions, places are allocated in accordance with the criteria defined in the Council’s ‘Starting School’ booklet.

We are happy to arrange pre-admission visits to help you decide on the best setting for your child. When places are allocated, we also provide visits for both parents and children to help with transition.

Children enter our nursery class in the September after their third birthday. This year we are able to offer full-time places to all nursery pupils if they are ready.


We can currently take 28 pupils into our nursery class. If we have spaces, we do admit pre-nursery pupils. Currently pre-nursery children can start the term after their third birthday. Applications are made in the same way as for nursery and the local authority will contact parents if spaces are available.


All pupils have to apply again to enter our Reception class. All applications for Reception class places must be made via the Council’s School Admission Team in the same way as applications are made for Nursery places. There are normally places available each year for pupils who enter in our nursery class. However, it should be noted that officially admission of a child to our nursery does not in any way guarantee subsequent admission to our Reception class.
