John Shelton Community Primary School serves children between the ages of 4 and 11 years. John Shelton also has nursery classes which admit children in the academic year before they are due to commence school. We also admit some children who are 2 or 3 years old into Nursery. Please ask at the school office for more details. Coventry children may be admitted to primary schools at the beginning of the school year after their fourth birthday provided they have reached the age of four by the 31 August. However, children must start school at the beginning of the term following their fifth birthday. Coventry operates a coordinated scheme for primary admission arrangements. This means that the Council administer applications for all maintained schools in Coventry, as well as exchanging applications with other local authorities e.g. Solihull and Warwickshire. More details about admissions can be found in the school Prospectus.
