6 Appendix 2 Admission arrangements for London Borough of Hounslow’s Community Infant, Junior and Primary schools 2017/18 This document sets out London Borough of Hounslow’s admission arrangements for Community schools in 2017/18. Number Published Admission (PAN) The published Admission Numbers for initial entry to Hounslow’s Primary community schools in September 2017 are set out in Appendix 1 Primary Community Schools Oversubscription criteria When the school is oversubscribed, after the admission of pupils with a Statement of Special Educational Needs/Education, Health and Care Plan where the school is named in the Statement/Plan, priority for admission will be given to those children who meet the criteria set out below: 1.

A Looked after child (as defined in the Children Act 1989) or a child who was previously looked after and has left care under a Child arrangements order, special guardianship order or who was adopted. (See Appendix 7 for further information relating to looked after and previously looked after children) 2. Exceptional Medical/Social need – Applicants whose child’s medical or social circumstances require attendance at a particular school rather than any other school. (See Appendix 7 for further information relating to exceptional medical/social need) 3. Sibling -Children who will have a brother or sister, including all blood half-, step-, adoptive and foster brothers and sisters of the child (not cousins) who live at the same home as the child, in the infant, linked junior or primary school in September 2017.

This would not apply if the sibling were due to leave in the July before the younger child would be admitted. Where there are more applications that meet this criterion than there are places in the school, priority will be given to those children who live nearest to the school, with the distance from home to school being measured (See Appendix 7 for distance criterion). 4. Distance - children living within the School’s Priority Admission Area. Where there are more applications that meet this criterion than there are places in the school, priority will be given to those children who live nearest to the school, with the distance from home to school being measured using a computerised mapping system (See Appendix 7 for further

7 information relating to Priority Admission Area, definition of home address and distance measurement). 5. Any other children – where there are more applications than meet the criterion than there are places in the school, places will be given to those children who live nearest to the school with the distance from home to school being measured using a computerised mapping system. (See Appendix 7 for more information on distance measurement). Tie Breaker If there is one place available and two or more children next in order of priority or next on the waiting list meet the appropriate criterion equally, the place will be allocated using the distance criterion.

If the distances are equal, a place will be allocated by drawing lots in the presence of an independent witness.

Parents should note that admission to reception classes is determined using the admission criteria for primary schools. Attendance at a nursery does not guarantee a reception place at an attached infant or primary school. Waiting list Hounslow keeps a waiting list for each school which is oversubscribed. To ensure that Hounslow meets its duty to continue to co-ordinate admissions beyond the offer date and comply with the parents’ highest possible preference, Hounslow will ensure that waiting lists do not contain lower ranked preferences.

Waiting lists for Hounslow Community Schools will include those who have moved to the area and were unable to make an ‘on time’ application.

Waiting lists are held in the order of oversubscription criteria, not in order of when an application is received. This means a child’s position can move down as well as up following the addition of any applications that may have a higher priority. The waiting list will be in operation until the 31 August 2017. Any parent/carer wishing for their child to remain on the waiting list until 31 December 2017, must register using the appropriate slip which will be sent to them in August. Those with a continuing interest beyond this time will be required to make an in-year application.

Late applications Application forms must be received by Hounslow Council by the closing dates stated in the published schemes. Applications received after these closing dates will be considered as late applications and will be processed after places have been allocated to applicants who applied on time. There may be exceptional circumstances the application may be considered as on time but must be received by dates stated in the scheme. This also applies to any changes to the application eg order of school preference. (See Appendix 7 – for further info on late applications). Timing of admission to reception Children born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013 will be expected to accept a full-time reception place starting in September 2017.

8 Parents of children who live in Hounslow must apply for a reception class place (year R) by participating in the coordinated reception scheme by making an online application. Deferred Entry /Part Time admission (Children below compulsory school age) Hounslow offers early admission in reception class to children before they reach compulsory school age. Parents/carers of a reception age child can defer the date their child is admitted to the school offered to a later term. However, you may not be able to defer entry beyond the beginning of the term after your child’s fifth birthday, nor beyond the academic year for which the application was accepted.

Parents/carers may wish for their child to attend the school part-time until later in the school year but this does not apply beyond the point at which the child reaches compulsory school age. Applications need to be made, and once the school has been allocated parents/carers need to discuss deferred entry or part- time attendance with the Head teacher of the school that has been allocated. Summer born – children educated outside their normal age group Paragraph 2.17 of the School Admissions Code (2014) states that the parents of a summer born child may choose not to send that child to school until the September following their fifth birthday and may request that the child is admitted out of their normal age group – to reception rather than year 1.

The Council, as the admission authority for Hounslow community schools, will make a decision on the basis of the circumstances of the case and in the best interests of the child concerned. This will include taking account of the child’s individual needs and abilities and to consider whether these can best be met in reception or year one. It will also involve taking account of • the parents’ views • information about the child’s academic, social and emotional development • where relevant their medical history and the views of a medical professional • whether they have previously been educated out of their normal age group • whether they may naturally have fallen into a lower age group if it were not for being born prematurely, and • The potential impact on the child of being admitted to year one without first having completed the reception year.

The views of the head teacher will be an important part of this consideration. Parents should write to the Council giving reasons for their request. This should be accompanied by the online application form for that child’s actual age group. The application will be processed and a school place will be secured. This place can later be withdrawn if the request for delayed admission is approved. If it is agreed that the child can delay entry then the parent/carers would have to make an application for the following September and this would be considered along with all the applicants for admission in that year.

However there can be no guarantee of a place being available at the school, as this is dependent on the number of applicants that year. It is not possible to reserve a place for the following year. The decision will be reviewed once the child has started school at intervals agreed by the family and the school. Parents have a statutory right to appeal against the refusal of a place at a

9 school for which they have applied. This right does not apply if they are offered a place at the school but it is not in their preferred age group. Admission to a Junior School for a place in Year 3 in September 2017 In accordance with the coordination of junior school places parents must complete the online application form naming up to 3 preferences for a junior school (see the coordinated scheme Appendix 9) Application for admission to a junior school for pupils in the Infant school with which it is linked will be required, but those in the Infant school will have top priority for places in the linked junior school.

Hounslow residents with children attending year 2 in an infant school in Hounslow must apply to continue their education at any linked junior school by completing the local authority online form. Other applicants for admission to the admission year in a junior school will need to make an application to their own Local Authority using their application form. If there are more applications than places available after the Infant school children have been allocated places in the linked junior school, the maintaining LA will consider all further requests for admission to community schools according to the oversubscription criteria for Community Primary Schools.

In-year admission to a particular school can only take places if there is a vacant place available in the relevant year group. Children in public care may be admitted to junior year groups above numbers.

10 Appendix 3 Admission arrangements for London Borough of Hounslow’s Community Secondary schools 2017/18 Children born between 1 September 2005 and 31 August 2006 will be expected to transfer to secondary school in September 2017. Parents of children who live in Hounslow must apply for a secondary school place (year 7) by participating in the coordinated secondary scheme by making an online application. The Local Authority is the Admission Authority for The Heathland School. Any changes to admission arrangements from the other Hounslow admission authority Secondary Schools will be consulted upon separately.

Oversubscription criteria for September 2017: Community Secondary School (The Heathland School) Should the number of applications for the Heathland School by the published closing date exceed the number of places published (270) and after the admission of pupils with a Statement of Special Educational Needs/Education, Health and Care Plan where the school is named in the Statement/Plan, priority for admission will be given to those children who meet the criteria set out below: 1. A Looked after child (as defined in the Children Act 1989) or a child who was previously looked after and have left care under a Child arrangements order, special guardianship order or who were adopted.

(See Appendix 7 for further information relating to looked after and previously looked after children) 2. Exceptional Medical/Social need – Applicants who child’s medical or social circumstances require attendance at a particular school rather than any other school. (See Appendix 7 for further information relating to exceptional medical/social need) 3. Sibling - Children who will have a brother or sister, including all blood half-, step-, adoptive and foster brothers and sisters of the child (not cousins) who live at the same home as the child on roll, at the Heathland School in September 2017.

If the older child is year 11 or year 12 at the time of application, the LA will ask the school whether it is expected that s/he will still be attending the school in September 2017.

4. Distance - where there are more applications than meet the criterion than there are places in the school, places will be given to those children who live nearest to the school with the distance from home to school being measured. (See Appendix 7 for further information on distance measurement).

11 Tie Breaker – if there is one place available and two or more children next in order of priority or next on the waiting list meet the appropriate criterion equally, the place will be allocated using the distance criterion. If the distances are equal, a place will be allocated by drawing lots in the presence of an independent witness.

(See Appendix 7 for further information on distance measurement). Waiting list – Hounslow will maintain a waiting list for Heathland School. To ensure that Hounslow meets its duty to continue to co-ordinate admissions beyond the offer date and comply with the parents’ highest possible preference, Hounslow will ensure that waiting lists do not contain lower ranked preferences.

The waiting lists will include those who have moved to the area and were unable to make an ‘on- time’ application. The waiting list will be held in the order of oversubscription criteria, not in order of when an application is received. This means a child’s position can move down as well as up following the addition of any applications that may have a higher priority. The waiting list will be in operation until the 31 August 2017. Any parent/carer wishing for their child to remain on the waiting list until 31 December 2017, must register using the appropriate slip which will be sent to them in August.

In-year admission – Should there be a vacancy in a year group during the academic year; places will be offered after applying the above admissions criteria to all applicants including those on the waiting list. Appeals –for school places will be heard in accordance with the provisions of the Schools Standard and Framework Act 1998 and the Education Act 2002, together with the Schools Admissions Appeal Code. Parents have a right of appeal to any school that has refused their child a place. Appeals will be heard by an independent appeals panel who will adjudicate on all appeals. Late applications – Application forms must be received by Hounslow Council by the closing dates stated in the published schemes.

Applications received after these closing dates will be considered as late applications and will be processed after places have been allocated to applicants who applied on time. There may be exceptional circumstances the application may be considered as on time but must be received by dates stated in the scheme. This also applies to any changes to the application eg order of school preference. (See Appendix 7 – for further info on late applications).
