Admissions

Information about Admission

The school is a community primary and nursery co-educational day school, catering for children in the age range 3-11. There is a 26 place nursery class attached to the school, within an Early Years Unit which admits children before their fourth birthday when there is a place available. There are two sessions: morning 8.40am-11.40am and afternoon – 12.30-3.30pm

Children start in the Early Years Unit:

Date of birth inclusive                                Date of part-time admission

1 September                                                September before the 4th birthday

 

YOUR CHILD WILL NOT HAVE AUTOMATIC TRANSFER BETWEEN NURSERY AND RECEPTION CLASS WITHIN THE EARLY YEARS UNIT. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU REGISTER YOUR CHILD SEPAREATELY FOR THE RECEPTION CLASS.

The PAN is the schools published admission limit which states the maximum number of pupils which will normally be admitted to each age group in the school. Nields school PAN is 30.

There is no longer a guaranteed place for your child in any of the priorities at any key stage.

The priorities for admissions to all key stages are:

  • Children in public care (looked after children)
  • Children with a Statement of Special Educational Needs which names the school
  • Children living in the school’s priority admissions area, who have an older brother or sister attending from the same address at the date of admission
  • Other children living in the school’s priority admissions area
  • Children who live outside the priority area who have an older brother or sister attending from the same address at the time of admission
  • Children who live outside the priority area
  • Children in priorities 1 and 2 above may be admitted above the PAN
  • If the school admissions cannot agree to requests for admissions priorities 3 to 6 above without exceeding the PAN they will give priority up to the PAN to children living nearest the school. Distance is measured in a straight line.
  • ‘Live’ means the child’s permanent home at the date when applications close, or if a significant house move is involved the latest reasonable date to the final allocation of places.
  • A Priority Admissions Area means a geographical area determined by Kirklees in consultation with the governing body of the school.
  • Allocation of a school place will take place on the basis of registrations  received by school no later than 1 December prior to the start of the academic year in which the child is due to start school.

School visiting prior to admissions

Nearer the time of the child starting school, parents are invited to an informal meeting where they receive relevant information about the school. The relationship between home and school begins at this point and arrangements are made for the children to visit the classroom. The process of integration then begins to develop.

Appeals Procedure

Whenever possible the Local Education Authority will try to comply with parent’s preference for a school or alternatively will try to offer another choice.
