In-year primary school admissions
Information on how to apply for an in-year primary school place immediately for the school year 2012-13.
Please note that if you made a late application before 31 August 2012 for a place in reception for the school year 2012-13 and have not yet received an offer, your application will be carried forward. You therefore do not need to complete our new in-year application form.
If your child was born between 1 September 2001 and 31 August 2008, check the latest primary school vacancies to find which schools have places available.
Check the catchment area for your home address.
Please note that odd numbers in Framfield Road are not in the Hobbayne catchment area for 2012 in-year applications but they are for 2013 main round applications.
Please read the primary schools 2012 brochure and pay careful attention to the admission criteria.
For more information on primary school in-year admissions, read the primary schools in-year admissions information leaflet .
For voluntary-aided (faith) schools you also need to complete the school's supplementary information form (SIF) for 2012-13 and return this direct to the school:
You will receive a decision letter from the in-year admissions team, giving you the outcome of your application. The letter will also inform you of your right to appeal and that you can request to go on the waiting list for schools where it has not been possible to meet your higher preference(s)
Children of year 6 age
If your child is born between 1 September 2001 and 31 August 2002 your child will be in year 6 in September 2011 and should start at high school in September 2013.
You therefore need to make two applications. As well as applying for an in-year primary school place now (year 2012-13), you also need to make an application for a high school place before 31 October 2012. For more information please go the high school admissions page.
