In-year Admissions

Parents must not be refused the opportunity to make an application or be told that they can only be placed on a waiting list rather than make a formal application.

As a Voluntary Aided school we are part of the Local Authority co-ordinated scheme for In-year admissions. The Admissions team will provide you with an In-year application form to be returned to them.

Upon receipt of an in year application, the Local Authority should aim to notify parents with the outcome of their application in writing within 10 school days, but they MUST be notified in writing within 15 school days.

Where an application is refused, the Admission Authority must also set out the reason for refusal and information for the right to appeal.

Where an applicant is offered a school place following an in-year application, and the offer is accepted arrangements should be made for the child to start school, as soon as possible, particularly where the child is out of school.
