Under rules issued by the Department for Education, parents have the right to apply for a place at any school in Barnsley or the surrounding district regardless of their address. It is necessary to apply during the Autumn term for statutory school age children who will be eligible for primary school starting the following September.
If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.
Where the governors are unable to offer a place because the school is over subscribed, parents have the right to appeal to an independent admission appeal panel, set up under the School Standards and Framework Act, 1998, as amended by the Education Act, 2002. Parents who intend to make an appeal against the Governing Body’s decision to refuse admission must contact the Independent Appeals Clerk to submit a notice of appeal within twenty one days of receiving the refusal letter to:
Independent Appeals Clerk
Wakefield Diocesan Board of Education, Church House, 1 South Parade, Wakefield, WF1 1LP
Telephone: 07949 707868 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Normally appeal hearings will be held within six weeks of the closing date for receiving the notice of appeal.
