North Borough Junior School will abide by the LA co-ordinated admissions scheme. The Published Admission Number (PAN) for entry into Year 3 will be 90 children. Children with a statement of special educational need (SEN) or Education, Health or Care Plan (EHCP) which names North Borough Junior School will be admitted and the admissions number reduced accordingly before the application of the oversubscription criteria.
Where the number of applications exceeds the number of places available, the following oversubscription criteria will be used to determine which children are most eligible for the available places.
After a place has been offered the school reserves the right to withdraw the place in the following circumstances:
- When a parent has failed to respond to an offer within a reasonable time; or
- When a parent has failed to notify the school of important changes to the application information; or
- The admission authority offered the place on the basis of a fraudulent or intentionally misleading application from the parent.
All applications are required to be made on the Local Authority Common Application form – the JCAF form, either on paper or online at www.kent.gov.uk/ola
Waiting lists - the school’s waiting list will be re-ranked, in line with the published oversubscription criteria above, every time a child is added.
Children taught outside expected year group - requests for admission outside of the normal age group should be made to the Headteacher as early as possible in the admissions round associated with that child’s date of birth. This will allow the school and admissions authority sufficient time to make a decision before the closing date. Parents are not expected to provide evidence to support their request to defer their application, however, where provided it must be specific to the child in question. This might include medical or Educational Psychologist reports. There is no legal requirement for this medical or educational evidence to be secured from an appropriate professional, however, failure to provide this may impede a school’s ability to agree to deferral. Parents are required to complete an application for the normal point of entry at the same time, in case their request is declined. Deferred applications must be made via paper CAF to the LA, with written confirmation from each named school attached. Deferred applications will be processed in the same way as all applications for the cohort in the following admissions’ round, and offers will be made in accordance with each school’s oversubscription criteria.
In year applications for Kent school places should be made direct to school, using a separate copy of Kent County Council's single In Year Casual Application Form (IYCAF) for each child and each school applied for.
Copies of the IYCAFs can be obtained here
