Admissions

All in-year applications to the school must be made through Telford and Wrekin and the links below outline this process. However, parents and children are always welcome to visit the school (if year group places are available) and we will try our best to accommodate your visits as quickly as possible.  Please contact the school office to book an appointment.

In our bid to provide the smoothest possible transition for all children when starting school -

  • We may ask you if you could accompany your child during the transition visits to share additional incidental information and support to them during that time.
  • It may be decided that your child would benefit from a staggered/graduated entry to school.

Both of these additional provisions will be considered by staff in light of your child’s individual needs, if either are thought to be appropriate we will contact you to discuss the possibilities or you may wish to contact us.

Redhill Primary Academy Admission Arrangements

The Planned Admission Number

The ‘planned admission number’ is the number of children the LA considers the school can accommodate. Governors have agreed to set the Redhill Primary Academy is 60 for each year group. We keep this number under review and the Governors will apply to change the number if circumstances change.

Determined Admission Arrangements for 2020/2021

Children with an Education, Health and Care Plan which names the school will be allocated places.

Those children who are or were previously looked after by Telford & Wrekin or any other local authority.  A 'looked after child', or a child who was previously looked after, but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, child arrangements, or special guardianship order.  Children previously in state care outside of England and have ceased to be in state care as a result of being adopted. All these children are known as children in care and will be offered places.

In the case of oversubscription, children who live in the Academy’s defined catchment area, and who live closest to the Academy, measured by straight line distance to the school, will be offered places in this order:

  1. Pupils living in the identified catchment area with the presence of a sibling at the Academy, at the start date of the admittance.
  2. Pupils living in the identified catchment area.
  3. Pupils who have a parent employed within the Academy.

Any places which remain available, will then be allocated to applicants from outside the school’s defined catchment area, as measured by a straight line distance to the school, in this order:

  1. Pupils living out of the catchment area with the presence of a sibling at the Academy, at the start date of admittance.
  2. Pupils living out of the catchment area nearest to the Academy.
