We follow the Derbyshire LA Guidelines for admitting children, and give the following order of priority to children wishing to enter the school:
Individual pupils who have a Statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education, Health and Care Plan which names the school will be admitted.
In deciding on admissions to all community and voluntary controlled schools in Derbyshire, the following order of priority will be adopted.
These rules are set out below:
Where, in the case of 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 above, choices have to be made between children satisfying the same criteria, those children living nearest to the school (measured by the nearest available route) will be given preference. ****
When parents are unable to obtain a place for their child at the school they want, they can appeal against the decision to an appeal panel independent of the council and the school. You will be adivsed about the appeal process when you receive the decision notification. Appeals in the primary and junior transfer round will normally be heard by and for in-year, admissions will be held within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged.
You can get more information and make your appeal online at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/admissions
