An application can be made for a place for a child at any time outside the admission round and the child will be admitted where there are available places. An application should be made to the school by completing the in-year admissions application form and returning it to School Places and Admissions, Children and Young People’s Services, County Hall, Durham, County Durham, DH1 5UJ. http://www.durham.gov.uk/article/2197/Changing-schools-during-the-school-year
Where there are places available but more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria, as set out in the admission arrangements for 2021/2022, will be applied. Please see the school admission policy on this page for information on admission arrangements. Parents are advised to read the admission arrangements carefully before making their application.
If there are no places available, the child will be added to the waiting list. Please see the admission arrangements for more details.
You will be advised of the outcome of your application in writing as soon as possible. Applicants must be informed of the outcome of their application within 15 school days of receipt, but the aim is to notify applicants of the outcome of their application within 10 school days of receipt.
You have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel if your application is unsuccessful.
You may also wish to discuss in-year applications with the local authority by contacting the local authority admission team at School Places and Admissions, Children and Young People’s Services, County Hall, Durham, County Durham, DH1 5UJ, on 03000 265 896 or by email at email@example.com
