Admissions

Admissions arrangements

If you would like your child to come to our school, please see the information below (along with all the other information on this website, of course).

If you would like to arrange a visit to see the school in action, then please get in touch with Mrs Holland who will be happy to arrange a time for you to pop in. Because of the coronavirus restrictions we are asking for adults to wear facemasks when they are with us.

We use the Mowbray Education Trust (MET) admissions procedures and criteria.

Please read the admissions policy in the 'Policies' section of the website (in the 'Key information' heading).

We are happy to assist parents and carers in these procedures. Please speak to Mrs Holland in the office.

We provide a range of visits and workshops for parents/ carers and children before starting in our first year, which is called the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage). This enables children to become familiar with their new surroundings and to settle in quickly, and helps parents and carers in supporting their children.

Objections to and referrals about determined school admission arrangements

You can make an objection to the Office of the Schools Adjudicator (OSA) if you think that the Primary School admissions arrangements of Mowbray Education Trust do not comply with the ‘School Admissions Code’ or other legislation relating to school admissions. Certain exceptions apply as set out in paragraph 3.3 of the Code.

Deadline for objections

All admissions authorities must determine their admission arrangements by 28 February every year, even if they have not changed from previous years and a consultation has not been required. You have until 15 May to contact the adjudicator if you have an objection.

If you wish to make an objection complete the ‘school admission arrangements objection form’.

Admission arrangements can also be referred to the adjudicator who may decide to consider whether or not they comply with admissions law and the Code and make a determination.
