Admission arrangements for children starting school
Admissions for children about to start school are decided by the governors of the school, but the process is coordinated by Nottinghamshire County Council. All information is available at www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk. Parents/carers are required to apply on a common application form through their ‘home’ local authority.
The published admission number per year group is 60.
The school is its own admissions authority but Nottinghamshire Local Authority coordinate our admissions. This means that the school sets its own admission policy but the Local Authority manage the process. Please see below for the latest policy and information regarding appeals.
Unfortunately the coronavirus outbreak has impacted on the ability of schools and panels to carry out admission appeals in the usual way and therefore there may be some unavoidable delays to the commencement to appeals being held across the country. However, as parents/families must continue to have the right to appeal to any school which has refused their child a place, the Government announced regulatory changes on the 24th April 2020 to the Admissions Appeals Code which will enable hearings to take place, although it is unlikely these will be in person due to social distancing requirements.
Your appeal, once submitted will be forwarded to the Independent Clerk, who is currently planning again for the commencement of the appeal hearings. He will be in touch with you as soon as possible once a date has been agreed for the hearing to take place. We do fully recognise the frustration this may cause but these are unprecedented times and trust you fully understand this. Each appeal should continue to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will receive acknowledgment that the appeal has been received, update on the situation and contact details for the appeals clerk who will manage your appeal and keep you informed of progress, date and outcomes.
