ADMISSIONS CHANGE NOTICE
This provides notice that the GLF Trust Board has agreed a change to the admissions policy pf all schools in the Trust for 2021 and 2022 to reflect that children who have been in state care outside of England, and ceased to be in care as a result of being adopted, must now be given the highest priority on oversubscription criteria, alongside looked after children and previously looked after children. This change comes into effect from 1 September 2021 and amends the admissions policies as already published for 2021 and 2022.
General Admissions Information
The Published Admission Numbers for Salfords Primary School for 2022 admission is 60.
Applications for admission at the normal intake will be managed in accordance with Surrey’s coordinated scheme on primary admission. Please see Surrey’s coordinated scheme on the Surrey County Council website for further details regarding applications, processing, offers, late applications, post-offer and waiting lists
Applications for Reception places must be made by 15th January 2022. Places at Surrey primary schools will be offered on the basis of the preferences that are shown on the application form. Parents will be asked to rank up to four preferences and these will be considered under an equal preference system
Children with a Statement of Special Educational Needs that names Salfords Primary School will be allocated a place before other applicants are considered. In this way, the number of places available will be reduced by the number of children with a statement that has named the school.
When Salfords Primary School is over-subscribed for any year group, applications for entry in 2018/19 and 2019/20 will be ranked in the following order:
- First priority: looked after and previously looked after children
- Second priority: exceptional social/medical need
- Third priority: children who will have a sibling at the school.
- Fourth priority: children for whom the school is the nearest to their home address
- Fifth priority: any other children
The remaining places will be offered on the basis of nearness to the school measured in a straight line from the address point of the pupil’s house, as set by Ordnance Survey to the nearest school gate for pupils to use. This is calculated using the Admission and Transport team’s Geographical Information System.
Outcome letters are sent out to parents in April from Surrey County Council and any appeals should be sent to them, not the school. For paperwork please use the following link:
