IN YEAR ADMISSIONS
Requests for admissions to the school to year groups during the academic year should be made through the LA Admissions Team or direct to the school. Children will then be placed on the school’s list. All ‘In Year’ admissions to the school will be made in line with the LA’s coordinated admissions scheme and fair access protocol.
Parents/carers are requested to complete our Supplementary Information Form (SIF) and return it to the school by the above date. If a SIF is not completed the Governing Body will apply their admission arrangements using the information submitted on the Common Application Form only, which may result in your application being given a lower priority.
Please note that the information in this policy is correct for the year shown. Policies for future years may well be different.
HOW PLACES ARE OFFERED
Please read the school prospectus prior to completing the supplementary form
The school is committed to taking its fair share of vulnerable children who are hard to place, in accordance with locally agreed protocols. Accordingly, outside the normal round of admissions, the governing body are empowered to give consideration to a child where admission is requested under any local protocol which carries the agreement of both the governing body and the diocese for the current admission year. The governing body has this power even when admitting such a child would exceed the normal admission number.
In the case of criteria 2, 4 and 5, parish priests and ministers will be asked to complete a form to verify attendance in accordance with the admissions criteria.
In the event of over-subscription in any one of the above categories, priority in that category will be given to children who live nearest the school measured in a straight line from the address to the school gate.
It is the responsibility of the parent to inform the school office if any details on the application form change.
Parents whose preference of school is not met have the right of appeal to an independent Appeals Committee. Further information about this committee and the way in which appeals may be made is available from the Headteacher.
A waiting list is kept for all year groups within the school. In the event of a place becoming available in any year group, it will be offered in accordance with the admissions policy and over-subscription criteria.
Parents whose preference of school is not met have the right of appeal to an independent Appeals Committee. Further information about this committee and the way in which appeals may be made is available from the headteacher. Appeals must be made within 21 days of the distribution of the governors’ Notification, which will be in accordance with borough guidelines. They must clearly state the reasons for appealing and provide full supporting evidence.
Please note that a repeat application for appeal within the same academic year will not be considered by the governors unless there has been a significant change in the circumstances.
