If you need advice call 03000 41 21 21 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are unhappy with the school place you've been offered, you can appeal for any of the schools you named in your application.
You can still accept the place your child has been offered. This will not affect your appeal and will guarantee your child has a school place if your appeal is unsuccessful.
Once you have been offered a place, you must complete and return the acceptance form to the primary school offered together with birth certificate, council tax statement, utility bill and proof of child's address. If you miss the deadline to accept the place you should contact Admissions to discuss whether the place is still available. You may lose your place if you do not accept by the deadline.
Once you have accepted your place we will contact you in due course with further details of your child's admission. We have a maximum intake of 60 children.
When we know our exact intake, we begin the process of ensuring every child’s entry into school is happy and relaxed. In the Summer Term before the September start, parents come to an Open Evening with their children to find out more about how we work and ask any questions they might still have. This meeting also gives parents the opportunity to meet and talk with the Reception class teacher and other support staff. At the start of September, just before starting school, each child is visited at home by our Reception class staff.
A prospectus of all primary schools and written explanation of the co-ordinated admissions scheme is available on request from Admissions or our school office.
