Choosing a primary school is a major decision and we are delighted that you are considering Samlesbury for your child. We are all very proud of Samlesbury and what we can offer your child. Samlesbury is a very special and unique school – we strive to treat children as individuals and work hard enable them to reach their full potential. Samlesbury has a distinct family feel; children and staff are caring and work together to do their best.

For Reception 2021:


Every day is an ‘Open Day’ at Samlesbury. Instead of putting on activities during an open day, we welcome visitors ANY DAY – come and see what our school is  really like –  in action!

At the moment we are still under Covid restrictions so please feel free to bring your child but we must limit visits to two adults. Adults must also wear masks throughout the visit when inside the school building. 


We take a maximum of 10 children each year. Children come from far and near to attend our very special school. In September 2020, we had 9 children starting at the school.

Update on faith commitment and church attendance which has been affected by the Coronavirus 

Due to the closure of church buildings for public worship from 17th March 2020, Church of England Schools and Academies have been asked to make a variation to their previously Determined Admission Arrangements for 2021 if they include Church Attendance as part of their Over Subscription Criteria.  

“In the event that during the period specified for attendance at worship the church has been closed for public worship and has not provided alternative premises for that worship, the requirements of these [admissions] arrangements in relation to attendance will only apply to the period when the church or alternative premises have been available for public worship”.
