The school’s in year admissions will be administered by the governing body of the school.
If you are new to the area or want to request a transfer to St Augustine of Canterbury RC Primary School, you may contact us directly to find out if a place is available for your child.
If your child is moving schools during the year the start date will normally be at the beginning of the next school term. They will continue to attend their existing school until that date.
If you are new to the area and your child does not already have a school place, this does not apply.
Applying to our school
To apply for a place, please complete our In-Year Admissions form and return to firstname.lastname@example.org
A SIF form is also required to be completed and can either be returned to the school office or email@example.com. Please see below.
If you have any questions in relation to in-year admissions, please contact Helen Webb either by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone on 01282 426938.
Where places are available but we have more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria will be applied, to ensure the correct child/children are offered the places.
Further information on how to apply for a local school can be found on the Lancashire County Council website: https://www.lancashire.gov.uk/children-education-families/schools/apply-for-a-school-place/changing-schools-during-the-school-year/
If there are no places available, then you have the right of appeal. Please see below for appeal information.
The school’s admission appeals are supported by Lancashire County Council. If the Governing body cannot offer a school place, parents have the right to make an appeal.
This appeal should be submitted using the link below within twenty days of refusal of admission. The appeal provides you with an opportunity to explain why you wish to register your child at our school. The appeal forms and advice on how to complete them is available on the Lancashire County Council website:
Lancashire County Council will contact you in respect of your appeal application and inform you of the arrangements. The outcome of the appeal will be notified to you in writing.
The decision of the Independent Appeal Panel is binding to all parties, ie the family and the school.
Please note that this right of appeal against the Governors’ decision does not prevent you from making an appeal in respect of any other school.
