RECEPTION SCHOOL PLACES SEPTEMBER 2022
From 1 November the admissions window opens for primary school places. I know that many of you will be planning for open day events, and are probably also dealing with questions from parents who plan to apply for a place at your school.
You may wish to add a link on your website to a YouTube video created by the admissions team. This video lets parents know how the admissions process works and provides the answers to common queries. You can find the link to the video in the article in the high priority section below about admissions for 2022.
VISITS TO SCHOOL
We are not planning any more open evenings, but are happy to provide prospective parents with a tour around our school. If you are interested and want to find out more please email Jo, below:
Where can I find useful information for parents?

You can find out more on the website
·including an address lookup tool - for families to check if their address has any priority, but not all addresses will have such priority.
There is also the link to the online application form
Families are please reminded to
- use all 5 preferences, using only use 1 or 2 preferences decreases the chances of being offered a place at a preferred school;
- 1st preference first isn’t allowed, - schools don’t know the preference order families provide;
- any supplementary information needs to be provided by the closing date (this applies if a child is previously looked after, is seeking admission under exceptional needs or if a family wish to apply for their child to be admitted out of chronological age group)
- use the child’s actual permanent address. Using that of a friend, relatives, childminder or renting a property to gain a school place are all considered fraud and places can be withdrawn.
