Askern Moss Road Infant Academy

Askern Moss Road Infant Academy


We hope our website gives you a good idea of what our school is about and our high expectations. You may also wish to visit our school, and we welcome visits from prospective parents of Nursery and Reception children during or after the school day.

Please call school to make an appointment. If you are unable to attend in person, I am always available to speak on the phone (or via email), so please contact the office on 01302 700287 or to make a telephone appointment. 

Admission Arrangements for 2024-2025

We are a member of Leger Education Trust.  The academy will follow the Admissions arrangements of Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council, as agreed in the Admissions Annex of Leger Education Trust's Funding Agreement.

Therefore, all applications to attend Askern Moss Road Infant Academy must be made to Doncaster Council, as only Doncaster Council (the LA) is able to allocate a place in this academy.

Admissions and Pupil Services

Applications for admission to Askern Moss Road Infant Academy are still made through Doncaster City Council in the first instance, and we update our available places with the Local Authority. 

Our Academy and LA Admission policies can be found below and on our policy page and further information and an online application form is available:  or 01302 736000

Children living in the Doncaster area will receive a letter from Doncaster City Council with their catchment area school on and details of how to apply online, ready for a September start if they have had their fourth birthday on or before 31 August.  The closing date for on time applications is in January for a September start and we recommend you apply on time to try to secure your first choice school.  Posters are displayed in our School Reception with closing dates for applications.

Once a decision has been made by the Local Authority, parents and carers will receive a confirmation from them of the school at which a place for their child has been allocated. Schools will then be informed of allocated places and parents will receive a call from a senior member of staff or class teacher who will explain our school induction process and invite parents into school for a look round.

Mid-Year Transfers: Askern Moss Road Infant Academy accepts transfers from outside the Doncaster area, subject to places being available during the academic year.  Parents with a child in another Doncaster School are also welcome to apply for a transfer to start at our school at the beginning of each term, (after Christmas and Easter) subject to places being available and a Doncaster transfer form being completed online and submitted to the Local Authority.

Further advice: Our office staff are happy to speak to you on 01302 701353 however cannot offer a place as only the Trust or Local Authority can agree places.  Please be aware if school is oversubscribed the Local Authority may hold a waiting list for places to become available.
