In Year Applications

If you wish to make an In Year Application for Year Groups 1-6, please contact school directly and complete the initial application form below.

In-year admission is the process of applying for a school place during the school year. Any applications for the intake made after the start of the autumn term will be treated as an in-year application.

The in-year admission process is managed by the school. Parents are required to complete the in-year application form, which is available on this page.

Where a place cannot be secured, parents will be offered a legal right of appeal to an independent appeal panel.

Lancashire County Council administers the appeals process on behalf of the school. Parents can complete the school’s appeal form on Lancashire County Council’s website.

If we have a space available in the requested year group we will then arrange an immediate discussion with the Headteacher. You will have the opportunity to look around school and ask any questions you may have. School will then contact your child's current school to confirm your child's details and to agree an appropriate transition phrase or starting date. Transitions usually happen at the beginning of the next half term. Occasionally, earlier starting times can be negotiated, but this is only in agreement with both schools.

 

We do not hold in year waiting lists and places cannot be reserved. Each application is considered in line with our admission policy and distances calculated in a straight line from the current address the child resides at to the front of school.

 

We have a statutory duty to inform the LA of all enquiries and allocation of places to ensure that no child is classed as CME - Child Missing in Education.

 

If we do not have a space available in the requested year group, you will then have the right to make an 'In Year' appeal. Please refer to the information in the Appeal section on this website.
