Prospective Parents' Open Events
We are holding Open Evenings for parents of prospective Nursery and Reception children for 2020-21. These will be held on: Tuesday 5th November 2019 at 5.15pm and Monday 18th November 2019 at 5.15pm.
Children who are refused a place will be kept on a waiting list for that school for a maximum of one school term. Waiting lists are cleared termly and parents will need to re-apply if they still want to be considered for a place at that school. For applications for Reception places, waiting lists are kept until the end of December in the year of admission and will then be cleared.
Waiting lists will be ranked in order of priority using the oversubscription criteria regardless of the date the application was received.
Right of Appeal
Parents/Carers who are refused a place for their child at the school have a statutory right of appeal to an independent appeals panel. Please contact the Schools Appeals Team for information (phone 0191 277 7427 or e-mail email@example.com). Information is also available at www.newcastle.gov.uk/admissions.
Appeals forms should be returned by 21st May 2020 to enable these to be heard before the panel. An appeal panel has very limited grounds to allow an appeal for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 as there is a limit of 30 children per class.
Year 6 transferring to Secondary School
Applying for a place to transfer to a Middle, Secondary, Trust School or Academy in September 2020.
The application process for a school place in a Middle, Secondary, Trust School or Academy for the school year starting in September 2020 will close on 31st October 2019.
If you missed the closing date and your child is due to transfer school in the school year starting in September 2020 you still need to apply for a school place. Your application will be treated as late and will be processed after those that are received on time. If there are exceptional circumstances why your application is late, you should enclose this information with your application and where appropriate provide supporting evidence (for example proof of a house move if you have moved into Newcastle after the closing date). Exceptional circumstances will be considered on an individual basis and may be processed as though the application had been received on time. Please note that 'exceptions' will not be possible after 1 January 2020 as the allocations process will have begun.
