Admissions

The School has an agreed admission number of 30 students. The School will accordingly admit at least 30 students in the relevant age group each year if sufficient applications are received.

The School Admission Regulations 2012 require admission authorities to set (‘determine’) admission arrangements annually. Once arrangements have been determined, any objections to them should be referred in writing to the Schools Adjudicator. The Schools Adjudicator can be contacted at The Office of the Schools Adjudicator, Bishopsgate House, Feethams, Darlington, DL1 5QE. You can also contact them on 01325 340525 or by emailing the team at osa.team@osa.gsi.gov.uk

Once admission arrangements have been determined for a particular school year, they cannot be revised by the admission authority unless such revision is necessary to give effect to a mandatory requirement of the Code, admission law, a determination of the Adjudicator or any misprint in the admission arrangements.

Process of application

Applications for places at the School will be made in accordance with the LA’s co-ordinated admission arrangements and will be made on the Primary School Application (PSA) provided and administered by Darlington Borough Council. Prospective students and their parents/carers are encouraged to visit the School before making an application.

Appeals Guidance for School

If the school receives more applications from parents/carers than it has places available, not every child can be successful in securing a school place. The Trust will use its admissions criteria, also known as oversubscription criteria, to decide which children to allocate places to.

Parents/carers have the right of appeal to an independent appeal panel if they are dissatisfied with an admissions decision of the Trust. The appeal panel will be independent of the Trust. The arrangements for appeals will be in line with the School Admission Appeals Code published by the Department for Education. The decision of the panel is binding on all parties.

September 2024 entry
