Admissions

There are two different types of admissions:

  • those to start school at the ‘normal’ time for the start of the Reception year; and
  • those for places in other year groups or at any other time – these are called ‘in-year’ applications for school places.

In-year applications are made for example when a child is already attending one school and the parent/carers wish to move their child from one school to another and when a family moves to a different area and needs a new school place for their child(ren).

Whilst the admission authority for our schools is Edukos Trust, admissions applications are co-ordinated by the Local Authority, East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

When considering making an application, if you would like to visit the school, please contact them directly to arrange this.

Below is further information about the admissions process.

Applications to start our schools for the first time, for the start of Reception should be made direct to the Local Authority in which you live by the deadline for applications.  Late applications will be considered after those submitted by the deadline, often when there are no places available, so it is important that you apply on-time.  If you live in East Riding of Yorkshire Council area, then you can find more information about ‘normal’ admissions processes, deadlines, details of the appeal process and other information at www.eastriding.gov.uk/apply-for-a-school-place.

If you live outside the East Riding, you should apply to your ‘home’ Local Authority and not East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

Although our schools are academies, the admissions authority for the individual schools, is Edukos Trust.  We have formally requested that applications for school places are made through the local authority’s co-ordinated admissions scheme for in-year applications.  Applications to start our school in-year should be made direct to the Local Authority no earlier than one term before the place is required, and it is recommended that you apply no later than a period of twenty school days, that is four weeks in term time, before you wish for the place to be available for your child.  Applications are considered in the order that they have been received, for example if there is one space available in a year group, the parent/carer who applied for their place first will likely be allocated the place for their child.  Proof of residence may be required before places can be allocated, and the school fully adheres to the East Riding Fair Access Protocol.  Applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application as soon as is possible, though this is commonly ten school days after an application has been received but may be later in certain circumstances.

If you live in East Riding of Yorkshire Council area, then you can find more information about ‘in-year’ admissions processes and details of the co-ordinated admissions scheme at www.eastriding.gov.uk/school-admissions where you can also find and download an application form along with details of how to appeal for a school place where you have been refused.  If you live outside the East Riding, you should apply to your ‘home’ Local Authority and not East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

As our schools are academies, the admissions authority for the individual schools is Edukos Trust.  It is the admission authority and not the Local Authority who determines whether there is an available place based upon the capacity of the class/year group and the number of pupils already on roll.
