In-Year Applications 2023-24

An application can be made for a place for a child at any time outside the usual admission round. An application should be made to the school by completing the in-year admissions application form and returning it to the school office or by email to admin@st-edmunds-pri.wilts.sch.uk or to the school address along with, where appropriate, any supporting evidence. All applications will be considered by the Governing Body and a place offered if one is available. Where there are places available but there are more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria, as set out in the admission arrangements for 2023-24, will be applied. Parents are advised to read the admission arrangements carefully before making their application. If your application is unsuccessful, you will be given the opportunity to join a waiting list and you have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel. You will be advised of the outcome of your application in writing as soon as possible. Whilst applicants must be informed of the outcome of their application within 15 school days of receipt, the aim will be to notify applicants of the outcome of their application within 10 school days of receipt. If you have any questions in relation to in-year admissions, please contact the school office by email - admin@st-edmunds-pri.wilts.sch.uk.
