Reception places – September 2018
Reception places will be offered via the local authorities on 16th April 2018. Parents of children who cannot be offered a place, due to there being more preferences made than there are places available, can ask to remain on a waiting list.
The local authority process the applications and appeals for this academy. Details of the appeals process, including the timetable, can be found at: https://www.bradford.gov.uk/education-and-skills/school-admissions/make-an-appeal/
You can make a formal appeal to an independent appeal panel for any school that you have applied for. This is a legal process and places are not 'reserved' for appeal panels to offer. The Government has set a limit on the size of infant classes and this means that no Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 class can have more than 30 children with one teacher.
If your child has been refused a place because there are already 30 children in the class, your appeal could only be successful if we have made a mistake or acted totally unreasonably. Only 1 in 5 appeals for Reception are successful because of the infant class size law. You can get more information and appeal forms from the local authority Admissions Team.
