Can anyone apply or only those from the new housing development?
All state funded schools must accept applications from everyone who is interested in a place. However if there are more applications than places the school’s oversubscription criteria will be applied to decide who should be offered. For this school the tie break for each category is home to school distance, meaning if you live closer i.e. the new housing development, you will have priority over other applications who live further. This does not affect the rights of children with an EHCP or who are Looked After or Previously Looked After.
What if I live in a different borough?
All applicants must also complete their home local authority’s form to ensure their child is offered a reception place for September 2021. You should find School 360 listed on the application form from any local authority.
What if I have other children of primary school age?
Unfortunately, in September 2022, we can only offer places to children entering Reception and Year 1. In the first year of a school opening it is usual to only open reception and then year 1 in the second year and so on.
When will I find out if I have been offered a place?
All places, including those for School 360 will be offered on national offer day 16th April 2021.
Can I appeal if I am not offered a place?
Yes, all applicants who apply for a place at any state funded school and are refused are given their statutory right to an independent appeal.
