APPLYING FOR A PLACE AT GUESTLING BRADSHAW

img_7864(4)

STARTING SCHOOL IN SEPTEMBER 2018

PROCEDURE FOR UNSUCCESSFUL APPLICANTS

Parents who are not offered a place for their child(ren) are entitled to appeal to an independent panel under the provisions of the 1996 Education Act. Appeals lodged in connection with entry in September must be submitted to the school by the following May. Appeals hearings will take place within 40 days of the appeals deadline.


Children refused a place can, at their parents’ request, be put on a waiting list where priorities will also be determined by the admissions criteria set out above.  Children are kept on the waiting list until the end of the current academic year.

ADMISSIONS AT OTHER TIMES

An in-year admission is the admission of a pupil to a school which takes place outside of the normal entry times. This includes pupils changing schools, pupils coming from a different country or from other parts of the UK, pupils returning to a school from living elsewhere or those who have not been in school. You can ask to change schools at any time.

You can apply direct to schools. If there is a place available the head teacher will usually arrange a start date with you. You can also apply online.

The Governors have agreed with the Local Children’s Services Authority to admit 30 pupils to Key Stage 1 (infant) classes and 32 pupils to Key Stage 2 (junior) classes. The admissions criteria, as stated in the Admissions Policy 2016-17 below, will be applied if there are more applicants than places.
