Admissions Policies

For applications in the normal admissions round you should use the application form provided by your home local authority (regardless of which local authority the schools are in)

https://www.kirklees.gov.uk/beta/admissions/apply-primary-school-place.aspx

 

You can use this form to express your preference for a minimum of 3 state-funded schools, in rank order. You will receive an offer for a school place directly from your local authority (Kirklees). 

In year Admissions

You can apply for a place for your child at any time outside the normal admissions round. As is the case in the normal admissions round, all children whose statement of SEN or EHC plan names the school will be admitted. Likewise, if there are spaces available in the year group you are applying for, your child will always be offered a place. If there are no spaces available at the time of your application, your child’s name will be added to a waiting list for the relevant year group. When a space becomes available it will be filled by one of the pupils on the waiting list in accordance with the oversubscription criteria listed in section 6.2 of the policy above. Priority will not be given to children on the basis that they have been on the waiting list the longest. The process for applications for in-year admissions can be found on the Kirklees website:

We would always warmly welcome any children and their families who wanted to come and visit out school at any time convenient to them. We would also be happy to support anyone with any application to school queries - please contact the school office in the first instance to discuss this.
