Infant School Admissions - Reception to Year Two
Thank you for considering St Martin’s C of E Voluntary Aided School for your child's education.
Please note that the St Martin's Pre-School is independently run and is not, nor has it ever been, a factor in determining priority for admission to the Infant School. You should also be advised that, even though we are Federated, children who attend the Infant School will need to apply to the Junior School to move on to Year Three.
If you have any queries regarding admissions please phone the school office on 01372 720337 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Admissions to Reception in September 2017
By now you will have received notification of the outcome of your child’s application for an infant school place for September 2017.
Accepting or Declining your Offer - Once you have been offered a school place, you must accept or decline it by 2 May 2017. If you don't the offer may be withdrawn. If you applied online you can reply online. If you applied by paper, you will need to return the reply slip by post.
Surrey Admissions strongly recommend you accept the place you are offered, even if this is not for the school you wanted, as it will ensure your child has a school place in September. You can go on waiting lists for other schools or appeal.
If you decline the offer and you have no alternative place you will be responsible for finding your child another school. The place you decline may be offered to another child so may not be available later if you change your mind.
Waiting Lists - We are sorry if your application to St. Martin’s Infant School was not successful. The last place allocated on distance on 18 April 2017 was 1.176 km (0.731 miles) from St Martin’s School.
If St Martin’s Infant School was a higher preference on your form than the school you have been offered your child will automatically be placed on our Waiting List. If you did not put St Martin’s Infant School on your Preference Form but would now like to be placed on our Waiting List please contact the office in writing or by email. At this stage we are unable to tell you the position of your child on our waiting list; we should be able to provide this information towards the middle of May. Your child’s name will remain on our waiting list until the end of the Autumn Term 2017.
Appeals - If your child is not allocated a place at our school, you have the right to appeal. The letter you receive telling you that admission has been refused will also contain information on how to appeal. It is advisable to consider alternative schools for your child, as only a very small minority of the appeals that are considered by Appeal Panels are successful. Officers at the Surrey Schools and Childcare Service (Tel No. 0300 200 1004) can assist you with queries on alternative schools in your area. As a Voluntary Aided School, our Governing Body is responsible for handling our appeals. If you wish to lodge an appeal, please contact Mrs. O’Rourke in writing or by email for full details and to request Appeal Papers. The Surrey CC website also contains useful information. Our Appeals Timetable can be viewed here.
Details on how all Surrey infant, junior and primary school places were allocated will be available on the Surrey County Council's schools directory as soon as possible after the allocation.
If you have any further queries regarding admissions to St Martin’s Infant School please email email@example.com and we will reply to your email as soon as possible. Please bear with us during this busy time.
