Primary and Secondary School Admission Guide
Our admission guide is now online - Secondary school places explains everything you need to know about obtaining a school place for your child.
How we use your personal information
Find out how we use your personal information and what happens if you give false information on your application form.
Unfortunately, children lose places every year due to parents giving false information on their application forms, this includes appeal forms. We therefore reserve the right to seek proof of address. We will withdraw an offer of a school place if it was obtained through a fraudulent or intentionally misleading application.
Parents will be asked to sign a declaration to state that you:
confirm that you have parental responsibility for the child (or have care and control of the child), and in seeking to apply for your child a school place, you have no knowledge of any opposition to this application from any other person who has parental responsibility for the child. (If applicable, you must inform us of the individual who opposes the transfer and supply their contact details)
will contact us immediately to let us know of any change of address details after the submission of your child's application
understand that your child's school place can be withdrawn even if he/she has started at the school if the place was fraudulently obtained
agree and consent to us checking the details you have provided on your child's application against Council Tax, Electoral Registration and other council records to confirm that your child is resident at the address in Section A
agree and consent to us sharing your data with other agencies, where it is necessary to do so and where the law allows, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 (see our Privacy notices and data protection page)
understand that if you have provided information that is incorrect or incomplete, you may be investigated and action may be taken against you (including court action)
