ADMISSIONS

Admissions to School for September 2020

Who can apply?

Only a parent can apply for a place at a school. A parent is any person who has parental responsibility for or is the legal guardian of the child, as set out in the Children Act 1989.

How to apply

The Local Authority operates a Co-Ordinated Admissions Scheme, which processes all main round (ordinary) admissions applications.  They publish a Composite Prospectus, which details all admissions arrangements for schools within the Local Authority.  Please see www.iwight.gov.uk  for the prospectus and details of the scheme.

You must complete a Local Authority Application Form available from website www.iwight.gov.uk  Should you wish to use a paper application, please contact the school office who will be pleased to issue you with one.

Offering places

The Governing Body will consider first all those applications received by the published deadline of midnight on 15 January 2020. Notifications to parents offering a junior school place will be sent by the Local Authority on 16 April 2020.

Applications made after midnight on 15 January 2020 will be considered after all on-time applications have been fully processed unless exceptional circumstances merit consideration alongside on-time applications.

For the normal admission round, all on time preferences will be considered simultaneously and ranked in accordance with the admission criteria. If more than one school can offer a place, the parent’s highest stated available preference will be allocated.

For more information, please see the Admissions Policy 2020-2021

In Year Applications 2019-20

Who can apply?

Only a parent can apply for a place at a school. A parent is any person who has parental responsibility for or is the legal guardian of the child, as set out in the Children Act 1989.

How to apply

The allocation of any places, which may become available during the year, will be made on the basis of the current Admissions Criteria. There are no deadline dates for in year applications. Applications must be made using the Local Authority Admission Form available from website: www.iwight.gov.uk .  Any parent with parental responsibility can apply for a place for their child at any time to any school. The Governing Body will decide whether a place can be offered at this school.

In-Year Fair Access placements by the local authority

The local authority must ensure that all pupils are placed in schools as quickly as possible. It may therefore sometimes be necessary for a pupil to be placed by the local authority, or a local placement panel acting on behalf of the authority, in a particular school even if there is a waiting list for admission. Such placements will be made in accordance with the provisions of the local authority’s In-Year Fair Access Protocol. The Protocol is based on legislation and government guidance.

For more information, please see the Admissions Policy 2019-2020

If you require further information about applying for a place at Oakfield Church of England (Aided) Primary School, please contact The School.
