Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School Admissions

Nursery class – non statutory

To apply for a Nursery place you should contact the Headteacher of the school for details. For further information follow the links at: www.walsall.gov.uk/education

Reception class – first year of statutory education

As a Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School, we follow the Local Authority’s admissions procedure. The inter- Local Authority scheme allows you to express preferences for up to three primary schools, rank them in order of preference and give reasons for your preferences and, if appropriate, medical or social reasons.

Walsall will send an Information for parents booklet to all families where a child is due to enter statutory education (Reception class). This will explain admissions procedures.

If you live in Walsall, you apply on line at www.walsall.gov.uk/education by 30th January, 2016 (for the September 2016 intake).

If you have any questions about the primary school admission process and would like independent advice, please contact the Admissions Parent Support Adviser at Walsall Council by telephone on 01922 652578 or email schooladmissionsadvice@Walsall.gov.uk

Mid-Year Admissions

To apply for a place at Holy Trinity for your child, please contact the school on 01543 452327 to find out if there are any places in the Year Group/s you require.

If there are no places available the school can put your child's name down on their waiting list.

Please note that you also have the right to appeal for a place in the school and can do so by contacting the School's Admission Team on 01922 686470.

Oversubscription Criteria

If there are more applications than there are places available, places will be allocated using the Oversubscription Criteria in the following order of priority:

 

  1. Children in Public Care (looked after children).
  2. Pupils who have a sibling already in attendance at the school.
  3. Pupils for whom a place at the school is essential on medical or social grounds as supported in writing by a medical practitioner or a social worker.
  4. Up to 25% of places may be allocated as ‘Church Places’ to children, regardless of distance between home and school, whose parents are regular worshippers at a Christian church and whose application is supported in writing by the minister of the church where they worship.
  5. Distance between the home address and the school as measured in a straight line with those living closer to the school receiving the higher priority.

If there is oversubscription in criteria 2 to 5, priority will be given to those living closest to the school as measured in a straight line.
