Schools

If you contact your local school directly they will be able to tell you if you are within their catchment area, they will also be able to give you details of any open days or their policy for visiting the school.

You may also want to read the school’s most recent OFSTED report to help you make your decision. Here

You may visit and or apply for a place at any school, however the admissions policy will outline who has priority (children with a statement of educational special needs, those with siblings in the school and those within the catchment etc) See your chosen schools website for full details.

The councils website showing catchment areas can be found here

There is no guarantee of getting a place in your preferred (or even second or third choice school) and the information about the appeals procedure can be found here.

In-Year Applications

If your child needs to change schools at any other time, for example you move into North Yorkshire or move address, you need to make an in-year application.

You can apply mid-year for a school place or to make a late application to start in reception or Year 7.

Sometimes children need to change school at a time other than starting in reception, transferring to a junior school or transferring to secondary school for the very first time. Some changes may be unavoidable, for example when you move into North Yorkshire, move house, or sometimes they occur because of difficulties at your child’s current school.

Changing schools is a big event for any child and should not be undertaken without first talking to the head teacher at your child’s current school, to try and resolve any problems.

An in-year application can be made at any time of the year as there is no closing date. Your application will be processed no more than half a term (six weeks) in advance of when a place is required. A school place will normally be allocated from the start of the next half term.
