The Local Authority is required to co-ordinate admissions to all Derbyshire Primary, Infant and Junior Schools. Essentially the Authority acts as a 'clearing house' for all admissions and enables parents to express a preference for one, two or three schools and to place those preferences in rank order. Parents must make their application on a common form, to be returned direct to the LA, and give reasons for their preferred schools. The form can also be accessed on the Derbyshire County Council website on their Primary admissions page.
Mid Term Admissions
Children may join the school in the usual way in the school year which they are 5 years old if there are places available. Parents may approach the school in the first instance to request a place. If the school has not reached its planned admission number for that year group, the child may be offered a place directly by the school. In the case of a class being at capacity level parents will be referred to the LA to go through the appeal process.
Transferring from Primary to Secondary School
The LA organises all applications for children to join Secondary Schools. You will receive an information pack from the Local Authority, via our school, giving you full details about applying for a Secondary School place before the application process opens. You can also visit the Derbyshire County Council website for more information.
