Our Governors may ask to see the following documentation during the application process: 

Birth Certificate for the child being registered.

Recent Utility Bill or Bank Statements showing parent's full name and current home address of where the child is living.
Official document showing child's name living at the registration address which can be one of the following official documents: NHS Medical Card, Child Benefit Statement, Working Tax Credit statement or Child Trust Fund Voucher/Letter.

The School Governors will meet to review all applications and determine allocation of places after the closing date of 15th January. The Governors will try to meet parents' wishes whenever possible. Final decisions cannot be taken until it is known how many places will still be available at the school after the needs of those who clearly satisfy the Governors' conditions have been met.
Your Local Education Authority will confirm your child's allocated school place on 19th April (afer the bank holiday), before your child is due to start in the September (this is the National Offer Day for Primary School places).


As part of the Co-Oridinated Scheme for Admissions, parents wishing to transfer a child to the school after moving into the neighbourhood during the school year, or without changing their address, will need to complete an In-Year Common Application Form (ICAF) returning the forms to their school of choice.  A decision about places should then be issued within 15 school days. 

Please click the link below to access the Kirklees website with link to their ICAF form, a paper copy can be obtained from any school.



Where the governors are unable to offer a place because the school is over subscribed, parents have the right to appeal to an Independent Admission Appeal Panel, set up under the School Standards and Framework Act, 1998, as amended by the Education Act, 2002.

Appeals will be held as an Infant Class Size Appeal as the Law states that there must not be more than 30 Children in an Infant Class (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2).  It is the Appeal Panel's task to review the allocation decision already made and you would have to show that the decision was one which in the circumstances, no reasonable Governing Body would have made, or that your child would have been offered a place if the governors’ admissions arrangements had been properly implemented.  This type of Appeal Panel does not have the flexibility to take into consideration your personal circumstances as to why you feel that you should have a place. 

There are a few circumstances in which a child may admitted to a class over the 30 places and are classed as an 'exception', the Government has listed these circumstances and they include: multiple births, children of armed services parents, looked after chldren and children who have special educational needs (Please refer to the DFE School Admissions Code 2021 for full explanation - School admissions code - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)).

Parents who intend to make an appeal against the Governing Body’s decision to refuse admission must submit a notice of appeal within twenty one days of receiving the refusal letter.  Normally appeal hearings will be held within six weeks of the closing date for receiving the notice of appeal.

Please contact the school office for details on the appeal process.  Deadline to submit appeal requests for Reception September 2022 intake is Monday 23rd  May 2022.
