Welcome to Lons Infant School!

Applying for your child's first school place

Applying for your child's first school place:

If your child was born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018 they'll be able to start school in September 2022. The school can take up to 90 children (30 in each year group) but normally there are anywhere between 70 - 90 on our roll. All are welcome to apply, even those outside our catchment area. 


We have created a virtual tour of the school for you to have a look at.

Lons Infant School Prospectus

Please note; our school prospectus was written prior to the current COVID-19 restrictions. We ask parents to be aware that there are certain events mentioned in the prospectus which parents would normally be invited to. These may still take place but we are unable to invite parents to see/take part due to COVID-19. This also means that we are, unfortunately, unable to invite you on to school site or in to school to take part in things such as: listen to children read, fundraising activities and school visits. However, once the restrictions are eased and schools are allowed visitors, we would love to see you in school!


Applications must be made via the Derbyshire County Council website (see link below). Please ensure you apply in preference order (1st - 3rd place). The application process opens in November and all applications must be made by early January.  Please check the link below for the exact dates.  For more information regarding admissions please visit:

However, please feel free to contact the school office if you need further help or advice on the admission process, or if you would like to book a visit to the school. You can also find out lots of useful information about our school on the School Prospectus.
