Transforming Life Chances

We aim to do an excellent job every day, ensuring that children feel safe whilst making sure they have access to fun and engaging lessons which will motivate and challenge them.

We make every effort to ensure starting the nursery and reception classes is a welcoming experience for children and parents.  All our admission and transfer arrangements aim to give parents the best possible information so that we can establish and continue to develop the very important partnership between home and school.

At every stage of the admissions process we arrange opportunities for parents to talk to staff and also to receive written information. If anything is unclear we encourage parents to contact the school office. Our administrative staff are very happy to explain any aspect of admission to parents.

Admissions Documents

Appeals for Year R (Academic Year 2024 – 2025)

Appealing an offer

You can appeal for any school named on your application that has not been able to offer your child a place.

To do this you will need to complete an appeal request form.

The form and details of where to return it to for each school will be published in the next steps guide on offer day.

The deadline for submitting an appeal is Tuesday 14 May 2024 for offers made on 16 April.

For late applications, appeal requests should be submitted within 20 school days of your application outcome.

You can appeal after these deadlines but your appeal might not be heard at the same time as those submitted on-time.

When you appeal you:

  • can only appeal for schools named on your application
  • can appeal for more than one school at the same time
  • must complete a request form for each school you're appealing for
  • can appeal for a school even if you have accepted another offer.

Schools will not know you have appealed for another school unless you tell them. The appeals for each school are completely independent of each other.
