Seaton Sluice First School has capacity for 30 places in each year group.

All main school admissions are dealt with by Northumberland County Council.

Telephone 0845600 6400 and ask for School Admissions Section or click here.


In addition, we have a nursery with capacity for 26 places. Our nursery admits children at the start of each term following their third birthday. Dependant on the age of your child and space being available in the nursery, this means they spend three, four or five terms in nursery before they move into Reception class in the September of the school year in which they are five years old.

All Nursery children are eligible to 15 hours free childcare, however, your child may be eligible for 30 hours. You need to sign up online and, if eligible, will get a code that needs to be given to school before your child starts.

You can check the level of support you may be entitled to on the website https://www.gov.uk/childcare-calculator. If you are eligible, please register on the website www.gov.uk/sign-in-childcare-account. If you do not have a government gateway login you can create one through this link. Once you find out if you are eligible please contact the school office and give us the 11 digit code.

You will need to reconfirm your eligibility every three months and will receive a reminder text message or email from the government before the deadline.

If you would like assistance with making an application, please contact the school office.
