Packington Primary School is a thriving and popular Church of England school serving the Village of Packington.

Children normally start school in the year in which they turn five but mid-year applications from children moving to the area or from other schools will also be welcome if we have space available to accommodate them.  We have one Foundation Stage intake, in September.  Parents and carers need to apply for a place at our school via the local authority by mid-January and places are confirmed in April. It is important to apply on time to have the best chance of securing a place at your preferred school. 

We hold open afternoons in the Autumn term on alternate weeks - please contact us to find out more. 

For 2024/2025 pupils will be admitted to Reception with a cohort size set for 15 children.

All admission applications should be made through the Leicestershire Local Authority website.
