Admissions Arrangements

We aim to make the transition from home to school as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

Parents are legally required to apply to the Local Authority. This can be done online. Please click on the link below to access the document.

If you cannot apply online, you can get a copy of the First Step Booklet by calling the Education Helpline on 0845 155 1019

Admission appeals timetables:

The government has issued new regulations about holding admission appeals over the coming eight months or so. Due to covid-19 restrictions, there is no requirement for appeals to be heard in person at a face to face hearing. For appeals lodged until the end of January 2021, the default position will be appeals by video call or by telephone conference. Those parents unable to take part can have their appeals heard in absence on the papers that are submitted. The strict timetable for appeals to be heard within a set number of days has been abandoned during this period too: they must be heard as soon as is reasonably possible, particularly over the summer holidays. The appeals timetable referred to in the above policies no longer applies for this summer.

Reception Admissions

Parents are welcome to visit the school before enrolling their children and can call in person or by telephone to make an appointment. Parents are encouraged to register an interest in their child attending Bere Alston Primary Academy at least a year in advance as this helps the school in its organisation. Parents are then legally required to apply online.
