How do I apply for an ‘in-year’ school place for my child?
Applications for ‘in-year’ school places are made through the local authority’s co-ordinated admissions scheme for in-year applications, and should be made direct to the Local Authority no earlier than one term before the place is required, and it is recommended that you apply no later than a period of twenty school days, that is four weeks in term time, before you wish for the place to be available for your child. Proof of residence may be required before places can be allocated, and the school fully adheres to the East Riding Fair Access Protocol. Applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application as soon as is possible, though this is commonly ten school days after an application has been received, but may be later in certain circumstances.

If you live in East Riding of Yorkshire Council area, then you can find more information about ‘in-year’ admissions processes, and details of the co-ordinated admissions scheme at www.eastriding.gov.uk/school-admissions where you can also find and download an application form along with details of how to appeal for a school place where you have been refused. If you live outside the East Riding, you should apply to your ‘home’ Local Authority and not East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
Who makes decisions on school admissions applications?
The admissions authority for the school is the Council, who make admissions decisions based on information provided by the school such as the capacity of the class/year group and the number of pupils already on roll.
Where can I find a copy of the admission arrangements for the school?
As the admissions authority for the school is the Council, the admission arrangements for the school are set by the Council alongside those that apply for all other community and voluntary controlled schools. You can view these arrangements for the current and some future school years on the Council’s website at www.eastriding.gov.uk/school-admissions.
