Admission Policies



If your child is not offered a place at Stapleford Abbotts Primary Academy, you can appeal against the decision.  The deadline for appeal is 15th May 2024.  Your appeal will be heard at what is called a Hearing, within a time scale of 40 school days from 15th May 2024.  It is likely to be heard between 3rd June to 17th July 2024. 

All other appeals known as ‘in-year’ admissions and those for Year R submitted after 15th May 2024 will be heard within 30 school working days of submitting the request.

Your appeal request should state your reasons for your request and any additional information/documentation/appendices should be submitted five days before the Hearing to allow time for it to be copied and distributed to all the interested parties. At least 10 working days before your appeal, unless you choose to waive this right, you will be sent detailed information regarding the process and also the date and names of the independent panel members who will hear the appeal.

The school is unable to guarantee that any original work/evidence/folders, submitted as part of the appeal, will be returned. Appellants may wish to submit copies in advance and then take important original documents verifying evidence to the appeal. 

If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
