If you applied online, decisions were announced on Tuesday 16 April 2019 on the school admissions website.
If you completed a paper application form we will have sent you a letter on Tuesday 16 April 2019 by second-class post.
The headteacher of the school will be informed that your child has a place. You will then be contacted directly by the school with further information.
You do not need to confirm acceptance, but please let us know if you no longer require the place offered at email@example.com.
The first day of the autumn term 2019 is Wednesday 4 September 2019 and your child should attend on that day unless you are informed otherwise.
If a preference has been refused at any school your child’s name will be kept on a waiting list for that school until the end of December 2019.
Parents refused a place at their preferred school(s) also have the right of appeal. If you wish to appeal you need to state your intention in writing to us or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, telling us which school(s) you are appealing for. You need to state your intention to appeal by Friday 3 May 2019.
If your child has been refused a place at an academy or a free school your appeal request we will forward your appeal to the headteacher of the school, who will send you an appeal form and further guidance. For all other schools, we will send an appeals form for you to complete and return.
Your completed appeal form must be returned to the admissions authority by Wednesday 15 May 2019. Any appeal lodged for an on-time application must be heard within 40 school days of the deadline. If you miss the published closing date, we will try to hear your appeal with the on-time appeals for that school. If this is not possible, it will be heard at a later date.
If we have been unable to accommodate any of your preferences an alternative school will be offered. In these cases you must accept this offer by emailing email@example.com by Friday 10 May 2019.
If your child has been refused admission to a school outside Norfolk and you wish to appeal for a place you should contact the Local Authority where the school is located. You should check the closing date with that authority as this may be different.
We must provide free transport for children who attend their nearest or nearest catchment school if they live further than the qualifying distance from the school, measured by the shortest available walking route. The qualifying distance is over 2 miles for children aged under 8 years.
Some children in Norfolk will also qualify for free travel based on certain criteria. Find out if you qualify. If you think you qualify for transport under low income grounds, medical reasons or you wish to make a discretionary application you can apply after 1 May 2019.
If your child receives free school meals at their current school, your child’s entitlement will automatically be transferred to the new school from September.
Free school meals are available to pupils in receipt of, or whose parents are in receipt of, certain benefits. Find out if you are eligible and how to apply.
Schools receive additional resources to support teaching and learning based on the number of children who are entitled to free school meals. If you are entitled, but your child does not take a free meal at school, it is still worth applying as this will support your child’s education.
If you have missed the admissions round deadline, you need to download and return an admissions application form (pdf) as soon as possible. Or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and provide the following information:
