Admissions – joining our school

Normal Admissions for children due to join Reception (Infant School) or Year 3 (Junior School) in September

All admissions for children to join reception (infant school) or year 3 (junior school) in September are co-ordinated through the Local Authority. You can apply for one of these places between 7 November 2022 and 15 January 2023 via the link below. You will also find information via the link on how to submit a late application after the 15 January 2022 deadline.

Mid-year Applications

All mid-year applications should be made directly to Beckers Green Primary School, using the mid-year application form available on our website. If you do not have online access, a paper copy is available from the school office. Mid-year applications (sometimes called in-year applications) are any application for a school place made to any year group, apart from September admissions to Reception (Infant School) or Year 3 (Junior School).

For applications into existing year groups, a place will be offered when the number of pupils in the relevant year group is below the admission number for that year group. The Published Admission Number (PAN) for our school is 45 in a year group.

Please note: if a mid-year application is received during a school holiday period, we will respond as soon as possible when school reopens.

Applications should be submitted no sooner than half a term before the planned start date. We will endeavour to reply to your application within no more than three school days. Where a place is not available to your child, they will automatically be added to a waiting list which is held in accordance with the school’s admissions criteria which can be found in the Admissions Policies below.
