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 16th April, 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 the ICAF form, a paper copy can be obtained from any school.



Where the Governoring Body is 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.  School Admission Appeal Panels must follow the law when considering an appeal.  

Appeals for this school 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 2).  There are limited circumstances in which a child may be 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 Admission Code 2021 for full explanation - School admissions code - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)).

Grounds for an Admission Appeal would have to show that the decision was one which in the circumstances, no reasonable Admission Authority would have made, or that your child would have been offered a place if the Governors’ admissions arrangements had been properly implemented.  It is the Appeal Panel's task to review the allocation decision already made and must consider whether:

  • Admitting another child would breach the Infant Class Size limit;
  • The Admission arrangements comply with the admissions law;
  • The Admissions arrangements were propery applied to the case;
  • The decision to refuse a place was one which a reasonable authority would have made in the circumstances of the case.

The grounds to test 'reasonable decision' are high and an Appeal Panel would need to be sure that to refuse a place was 'perverse' or 'outrageous' and for that reason panels rarely find an Admissions Authority's decision to be unreasonable.  In this type of Appeal, the Panel can only consider the above areas and does not have the flexibility to take into consideration your personal circumstances as to why you feel that your child should have a place. 

Parents who intend to make an appeal against the Governing Body’s decision to refuse admission must submit a letter addressed to the Clerk for Appeals, outlining their reasons for the appeal, within twenty one days of receiving the refusal letter.  

Deadline to submit appeal requests for Reception September 2024 intake is Tuesday 14th May 2024. Normally round appeal hearings will be held within six weeks of the closing date for receiving the letter of appeal.  

Please contact the school office for further details on the appeal process.
