Foreword
Dear Parents and Carers
Starting primary schools is an exciting time for your child and for you as a parent or carer. Your child’s entry into
reception and their educational journey through primary school sets the foundation for their learning throughout
their childhood and beyond. All of our primary schools are committed to providing a high quality of education and
excellent opportunities for our children. Our schools are very popular and the greater majority of them are now
judged by Ofsted to be good or outstanding. It is important that you visit your local schools before deciding on your
six preferences so that you can be sure you are selecting the right preferences for you and for your child.
We hope that the information in this booklet supports you in being able to make a well informed decision for
your child. The booklet contains information on all primary schools in our borough and provides a step by step
guide about how to make your application. Please be aware that you have the right to express a preference for a
school but that is not the same as choosing the school where your child will attend. Many of our schools are very
popular and receive more preferences than there are places available. The booklet will help you to select the right
preferences for your child and will also help you in making sure your preferences contain some realistic choices
for you and your child. Where schools are oversubscribed the admission criteria set out in this booklet will be
used to decide who will be offered a place.
Once you have decided on your preferences you should apply online at www.haringey.gov.uk/schooladmissions if
you do not have access to a computer you can request a paper application using the information contained in this
booklet.
Please note that demand for school places in Haringey is very high. To give yourself the best chance of receiving
an offer for a school place for your child from one of your preferences please ensure that you submit your
application on time – by 15 January 2015.
Along with all of our Councillors, Council officers, school staff and governors, we are committed to the continued
improvement of education for all children attending Haringey’s family of primary schools. The care, nurturing and
attention offered to your child and their continue success is as important to us as it is to you. We hope you will find
the booklet helpful and we wish your child every success at primary school and beyond and we look forward to
receiving your application.

Cabinet Member for Children and Families
Jon Abbey
Assistant Director, Schools and Learning

Section 1
APPLYING FOR A SCHOOL PLACE
Before you make your application
1
2
3
Please contact each school directly to arrange a visit.
Visit schools.
Read Ofsted reports.
You can view reports at www.ofsted.gov.uk.
Look to see how many places each school has available. This is
called the published admission number or PAN. This number is
set to take into account the number of pupils each school site can
accommodate and how many places are needed in the local area.
4
Read the admissions criteria for each school and look to
see which criteria apply to your child.
Consider how likely it is
that your child will be
offered a place at your
preferred schools
5
The admissions criteria for Haringey community schools are
listed on page 22.
For all other schools the admissions criteria are listed
under each school’s entry from page 24.
You can find out the home to school distance of your preferred schools
by emailing us between 1 September 2014 and 15 January 2015.
Contact us to find out
your home to school
distance
6
The distance of the last child offered a place at a particular Haringey
school from last year is available on page 23 of this booklet.
Please remember that although this information can be used to
give you an idea of how likely it is that you will be offered a place at
your preferred school, the ‘last distance’ will change every year. We
can never guarantee any child will be offered a place at any school.
Consider how your child will travel to school
Do: Talk to your child about the decision
6
The admission number for each
school is listed under each
school’s entry from page 24.
Don’t: Let others influence your decision – the
right school for your friend’s child may not be
the right school for your child.
Apply online at www.haringey.gov.uk/schooladmissions
Section 1: Applying for a school place
Completing your application
„„ We recommend that you list six schools on your
application form. This will maximise the possibility
of your child being offered a school you would like
them to go to.
„„ The schools can be in Haringey or elsewhere.
„„ Please list the schools in the order you most prefer
them.
„„ Please do not list any private fee-paying schools on
the form.
„„ You must check if any of the schools you are
applying for require a Supplementary Information
Form (SIF) to be completed. We have clearly
shown in the schools section of this booklet which
Haringey schools have a SIF. You will need to ask
the school for the SIF.
Online applications
Apply online from 1 September 2014 at www.haringey.gov.uk/schooladmissions

also find out the outcome of your application before those who applied on paper – apply online and find out the
results of your application the evening before you receive your letter.

Section 1: Applying for a school place
Your child’s address
Proof of address
The address you provide must be your child’s
permanent address on 15 January 2015. This must not
be an address of another family member or another
adult who looks after your child but does not have
parental responsibility for your child.
If parents are separated the application should be
made by the parent the child normally lives with. Where
a child spends equal time with each parent, the exact
arrangements should be made clear in a letter with a
copy of any custody or residency order. Your application
for a school place can only be processed from one
address.
Please provide your council tax reference number (as
shown on your annual bill or direct debit statement)
and a copy of your gas or electricity bill dated within 3
months of 15 January 2015.
Failure to produce evidence to verify your address may
lead to the offer of a place being withdrawn.
Change of address
If you move house after submitting your application,
please let us know immediately.
All changes of address will be thoroughly investigated
and we will not accept information relating to a
temporary arrangement put in place to gain access to a
preferred school.
You will need to prove that there is no remaining
connection with the previous address and you may
be asked to supply additional evidence such as
proof of completion on the property sold or a copy of
termination of tenancy agreement on the previous
property.
If we receive the required proof of address by 13
February 2015 then we will be able to use your new
address to measure your home to school distances.
If we receive the information after 13 February 2015
we will ensure that your offer letter is sent to your
new address but we will not be able to update your
home to school distances until after 16 April 2015. In
this instance we will also use the original address you
provided for the purposes of measuring your home to
school distance.
Fraudulent Applications
We reserve the right to undertake reasonable checks
to verify any information provided on your application
form.
If we find that a school place was obtained using a false
address, we will withdraw the offer and give it to the
child who was entitled to the place.
We consider that every school place obtained by
deception is unfair, as other children are being
deliberately denied their legitimate claim to that place.
Rigorous checks will be carried out to ensure that
applications are not fraudulent. We carry out random
checks on a number of applications and we reserve the
right to carry out home visits to the address used on
the application form.
If you suspect that someone intends to or has used
a false address to obtain a school place, please call
the Haringey Fraud hotline on 0500 500 7777 or email
[email protected] in confidence. Alternatively
you can write to the Admissions Service, Haringey
Council, 48 Station Road, Wood Green, London, N22
7TY. All cases will be investigated.
If you are moving between two properties that you own,
you will need to supply proof of Council Tax for your
residence and documentation detailing the use of the
other property.

Section 1: Applying for a school place
Private fostering
If a child is living with someone outside their family, this is what is known as a private fostering arrangement.
„„ Do you know what private fostering is?
Private fostering is when a child under the age of
16 (or 18 if disabled) is cared for by someone who
is not their parent or a ‘close relative’. This is a
private arrangement made between a parent and
a carer, for 28 days or more. Close relatives are
defined as step-parents, grandparents, brothers,
sisters, uncles or aunts (whether of full blood,
half blood or marriage/affinity). It is a legal
requirement that you contact Haringey Council
on 020 8489 5762/4582 or email [email protected]
haringey.gov.uk
„„ Do you know about the duty to notify?
There is a duty on the part of parents and carers
entering into private fostering arrangements to
notify the council. This is in order to safeguard
and protect the child’s welfare as well as ensuring
that the child, carer and parent are receiving
appropriate support and help.
If you know or suspect that a child is being cared for by
someone outside their family please call us on 020 8489
5762/4582 or email [email protected]
Apply online at www.haringey.gov.uk/schooladmissions
11
Section 1: Applying for a school place
Additional information
Children with a statement of Special Educational
Needs or an Education Health and Care Plan
If your child has a statement of Special Educational
Needs (SEN) or an Education Health and Care Plan,
their admission to primary or junior school will not be
via the normal admissions procedure set out in this
booklet. The SEN Service will write to you and explain
the procedure for applying for a primary or junior place
for your child.
Looked after and previously looked after children
Please let us know if your child is in care to a Local
Authority or previously looked after but immediately
after being looked after became subject to an adoption,
residence or special guardianship order.
Where a child is in care we will need a letter from the
child’s social worker or Local Authority to confirm this.
Where a child is previously looked after we will need a
copy of the adoption, residence or special guardianship
order and documents or a letter showing your child
was previously in care. This only applies to children
who were previously looked after by a Local Authority in
England or Wales.
Exceptional social / medical reasons
All schools in Haringey have experience in dealing
with children with diverse social and medical needs.
However, in a few exceptional cases there are reasons
why a child has to attend one specific school.
For your application to be considered under the social
medical criterion you must provide written evidence
from a doctor, social worker or other independent
professional. In each case, the connection between
your child’s need and the specific school must be made
and you must clearly demonstrate why this one specific
school can meet your child’s needs in a way that no
other school can.
You will need to supply evidence by the application
deadline of 15 January 2015. Information after this date
will be considered after 16 April 2016.
Priority under this criterion can only be given for one
specific school but we still recommend that you list 6
schools on your application form. We may have to share
the information you have provided with the offered school.
Multiple births
Parents with multiple birth children must complete a
separate application form for each child. If only one place
is available at a community school and the child who
qualifies for that place is one of multiple birth siblings, we
will ask the school to go over their published admission
number. If this happens at an academy, foundation or
free school the council will ask the governing body of
the school if an additional place can be offered, but the
decision will rest with the governing body.
Submitting your application - don’t be late!
Applications received after 15 January 2015 will be
classed as late. Late applications will be considered after
all the other applications that were received on time.
If there are exceptional circumstances why your
application was received after the deadline, please
provide independent written evidence by 13 February
2015 (from someone who is impartial) explaining
why the application was late. This information will be
considered by a panel and we will let you know if your
application will be processed as late or ‘on time’.
Late applicants are very unlikely to be offered one of
their preferred schools.
Please ensure that you submit all relevant information,
including professional evidence with your application.
A panel of officers will determine whether the
evidence provided is sufficiently compelling to meet
the requirements and you will be notified of the panel’s
decision in writing.

Section 1: Applying for a school place
Changes of preference
If you have applied online you can make changes
up until the closing date by returning to the online
e-admissions website and editing your application.
Changes requested over the telephone will not be accepted.
Preferences cannot be changed after 15 January 2015
unless you move address and you will need to let us
know by 13 February 2015.
If you send in a paper application before 15 January
2015 and then decide to make changes, you can still
do this as long as we receive written requests by 15
January 2015.

Section 1: Applying for a school place
How we will process your application
Each school you list is considered at exactly the same
time. This includes schools in Haringey and schools
located in other boroughs.
The published admissions criteria (also called
admission rules or admission arrangements) will be
applied to every school you list.
„„ Our computer system works out who can be offered
a place at Haringey community schools. It applies the
criteria which is given on page 22 of this booklet.
„„ The governors of academies, voluntary aided and free
schools apply their criteria to all their applicants and
let us know who should be offered a place.
„„ Other boroughs apply their criteria and let us know
which Haringey residents can be offered places at
their schools.
Each school has a set number of places that can be
offered (the pulished admission number) and places
are offered until the school is full or there are no more
applicants for that school.
If a child can be offered more than one place then the
highest possible preference will be offered.
Summary of application process
Application received

Criteria applied to each preference

Places are offered up to the Admissions Number at
each school

Highest possible preference offered to each child
Sometimes we cannot offer any school listed because
in every case other applicants met the admissions
criteria better than they did. For example, other
applicants lived closer to the school.
If this happens we will offer a place at the nearest
school with an available place. With the governors’
agreement, it may be possible to allocate places at
academies, voluntary aided and free schools, if there
are any available.
Places are offered in accordance with the schools’
admissions criteria and your child may qualify for more
than one school. Please therefore list your schools
in the order you prefer them. This is very important
because only one offer will be made and this will be for
the highest preference school for which your child has
qualified under the admission criteria.

Please accept your offer by 30 April 2015. If you do
not accept the offer you will be asked about the
arrangements you will be making for your child in
September. Please remember the offer that we give you
on 16 April will either be:
„„ The highest preference school you listed that your

„„ The nearest school with an available place.
Accepting the offer will not affect your waiting list
position or appeal outcome.
Waiting lists
If we cannot offer you your first preference school, your
child’s name will automatically be added to the waiting
list for any schools on your form listed higher than the
school you have been offered.
Waiting lists are ordered strictly in accordance with the
school’s admissions criteria.
Waiting list positions can change at any time depending
on other applicants’ circumstances and it is important
to note that your child’s position may go down as well
as up if other applicants join the waiting list. Being on a
waiting list does not guarantee a place at the school.
Your child will remain on the waiting list until the end of
the autumn term and we will write to you to ask you to
complete a new application form if you wish to extend
this further.
Deferred entry to a school
The law states that a child must be receiving appropriate
education from the term following their fifth birthday.
The council must provide school places for all children
in the September following their fourth birthday but
parents have the right to:
a) request that the date their child is admitted to
school is deferred until later in the academic
year or until the term in which the child reaches
compulsory school age, and
b) request that their child takes up the place part-time
until the child reaches compulsory school age.
Please be aware that it is not possible to reserve a
place for the following year. Children who do not take
up a reception place within the academic year will
need to make an in-year application in September for
admission into year 1.
Summer born children and delaying entry
If you are a parent of a summer born child, you can
request that they enter the Reception class in the
September after their fifth birthday. Parents thinking
of making a request for delayed entry should write to
us explaining the reasons for their request and provide
recent independent professional evidence.
Please make sure you complete an application for your
child’s actual age group before the closing date on 15
January 2015. The request for later admission and
supporting evidence should accompany your application.
We will contact you to talk this through with you.
Your application will be processed and a school place
secured in your child’s actual age group. You will then be
able to withdraw your place if your request for delayed
admission is approved by an admission authority and
make a fresh application for 2016. There is no right of
appeal against this decision.

Section 1: Applying for a school place
School admission appeals
If your child is not offered a place at one of the schools
you listed on your form you can appeal against this
decision to an independent appeal panel. You will be
given details of how to make an appeal in our offer
letter. The deadline to appeal is 15 May 2015.
Appeals are heard by an independent appeal panel of
three members of the public. You can only make one
appeal for each school listed on your form. If you did
not get a place at more then one school you listed on
your application you can make a separate appeal for
each school.
Please note:
By law children cannot be taught in classes of more
than 30 in Key Stage 1 (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2).
Where a child has been refused admission to a school
because the class has reached its limit of 30, an appeal
panel can only offer a place to a child where:
Please be aware that if one of these schools is a voluntary
aided school, an academy or a free school you have to
appeal to the school directly as they are responsible for
organising their own appeals.
When you indicate your wish to appeal for a Reception
or Junior place you will be contacted by the Appeals
Administrator 10 days before the hearing to confirm
the date. Futher details of the appeals timetable will be
published on our website in February 2015.
You are able to submit additional evidence or
documentation that might be relevant to your appeal.
Please submit any evidence as soon as possible
and before the hearing. This is so that all the other
participants have time to read your information.
Where possible, appeals for late applications will
be included with those being heard for the same
admissions round. However, if this is not possible,
appeals for late applications will be heard during the
2015 autumn term.
a) It finds that the admission of additional children
would not breach the infant class size limit; or
b) It finds that the admissions arrangements did not
comply with admissions law or were not correctly
and impartially applied and the child would have
been offered a place if the arrangements had
complied or had been correctly and impartially
applied; or
c) It decides that the decision to refuse admission was
not one which a reasonable admission authority
would have made in the circumstances of the case.

Section 1: Applying for a school place
Myth Busters
Myth: Listing one school will
mean that you will have to offer
me that school.
If you list only one school and your child cannot
be offered a place under the school’s admission
arrangements, we will offer the nearest school
to your home address with a vacancy.
Myth: I live nearer to the school
than the last child offered under
the distance criterion last year
so I’m guaranteed a place.
Although the information listed on page 23 can
give you an idea of how likely it is that you will be
offered a place at your preferred school, the ‘last
distance’ will change every year.
We cannot guarantee any child will be offered a
place at any school.
Myth: Children in my road go to
the school so my child will too.
The number of pupils offered under each
criterion at each school can change every year
so just because you know pupils living near you
that go to a certain school, it does not mean
that your child will be offered a place there.
Myth: If I apply to a school
in another borough, their
residents will have priority
over me.
Myth: Listing the same
school six times will improve
my chances of being offered
a school.
Myth: It does not matter if
my form is late.
Myth: I can only apply for
Haringey schools.
18
Some parent/carers make decisions based on
incorrect information they have heard. Here
are some of the common reasons for not being
offered a place at one of their preferred schools.
An admissions authority cannot give preference
to its own residents and published admissions
criteria cannot include the borough of
residence. Haringey cannot and does not
discriminate between applicants who live in the
borough and those who do not.
Your child can only be considered once for a
school and any duplicated preferences
will be deleted.
If you apply after 15 January 2015, we will look at your
application after all those that applied on time and
it is very unlikely that you will be offered one of your
preferred schools.
You can apply for both Haringey and out of borough schools
by naming them on the Haringey application form.

Section 2: Haringey Schools
Admissions criteria for Haringey
community schools
If we receive more applications than spaces available at Haringey
community schools then we will apply the following admissions criteria.
Children with a statement of Special Educational Needs
which names the school will be admitted in accordance
with Section 324 of the Education Act 1996.*
5. Distance
1. Children in care
Tie breaker
Children who are looked after by a local authority or
were previously looked after but immediately after
being looked after, became subject to an adoption,
residence, or special guardianship order.
The tie breaker for all criteria is children living closest
to the school measured in a straight line from the post
office address point for the child’s home, to the post
office address point of the school, supplied by the Royal
Mail using a computerised mapping system.
Children in care means children who are in care of a
local authority in accordance with Section 22 Children
Act 1989.
2. Social / medical
Children who the Authority accepts have an exceptional
medical or social need for a place at one specific
school. Applications will only be considered under
this category if they are supported by a written
statement from a doctor, social worker or other
relevant independent professional. The information
must confirm the exceptional medical or social need
and demonstrate how the specified school is the only
school that can meet the defined needs of the child.
3. Linked school
This rule applies only to junior school admissions.
Applicants attending an infant school will be prioritised
under this rule for admission to the linked junior
school. The linked infant and junior schools in
Haringey normally share the same names (eg Rokesly
Infant School is linked to Rokesly Junior School). The
exception to this is St Peter-in-Chains Infant School
and St Gildas’ Junior School.
Children living closest to the preferred school.
The tiebreak for two or more applications that live
exactly the same distance from the school will be
random allocation using a computerised system
Multiple births
If only one place is available at the school and the child
who qualifies for that place is one of multiple birth
siblings, we will ask community schools to go over their
published admission number.
A multiple birth is the birth of more than one baby from
a pregnancy.
*This also applies to all children with an Education
Health and Care Plan. From September 2014 the
new Children and Families Act will become law. This
replaces the current statement of Special Education
Needs with the Education Health and Care Plan
(EHCP). This change will apply to all school admission
arrangements in this booklet.
4. Brother or sister
Children with a brother or sister already attending the
school and who will still be attending on the date of
admission. This category includes foster brothers and
sisters, half brothers and sisters or stepbrothers and
sisters. Parents should note that in all these cases, the
brother or sister must be living at the same address as
the child for whom the application is being made.

Oversubscription criteria
When the Academy is oversubscribed, after the
admission of pupils with Statements of Special
Educational Needs where the school is named in the
Statement, priority for admission will be given to those
children who meet the criteria set out below, in priority
order:
1. Looked after children or previously looked after
children as defined in the Admissions Code;
2. Pupils who, on the date of admission, will have
an older sibling (i.e. a natural brother or sister,
or a half brother or sister, or a legally adopted
brother or sister or half-brother or sister, or step
brother or sister who will be living with them at
the same address at the date of their entry to the
Academy) in years R-6 of the Academy. Proof of
the sibling relationship will be required (short birth
certificates).
The Academy will operate a waiting list for each year
group. Where in any year the Academy receives more
applications for places than there are places available,
a waiting list will operate until the end of the first term
after the beginning of the school year. This will be
maintained by the Academy Trust and it will be open
to any parent to ask for his or her child’s name to be
placed on the waiting list, following an unsuccessful
application.
Children’s position on the waiting list will
be determined solely in accordance with the
oversubscription criteria. Where places become vacant
they will be allocated to children on the waiting list in
accordance with the oversubscription criteria. Where
casual applications are made and a request made to
be added to the waiting list the rank order of children
on the waiting list will be recalculated using the
oversubscription criteria.
Appeals
The school will offer an appeal to anyone refused
admission. The appeal will be before an independent
appeals panel constituted in accordance with the
School Admission Appeals Code. If refused admission
you should contact the school to lodge an appeal.
3. Other children
4. If in categories 2-3 above a tie-break is necessary
to determine which child is admitted, the child
living closest to the school will be given priority for
admission. Distance is measured from the child’s
home to the front gates of the school in a straight
line. This is measured by using a computerised
mapping system from the post office address
point of the home address to the post office
address point of the school. If children are tied
for the final place(s) to be allocated with exactly
the same distance, priority for the final place(s)
will be determined by random allocation using a
computerised system. Proof of residence or offer
of letting from landlord will be required (council tax
bill, utility bill).

the governing body will require written evidence submitted
to the school at the time of application from an appropriate
professional, such as a social worker, doctor or priest.

of baptism in a Catholic Church or a certificate of
reception into the full communion of the Catholic Church.
Christian: for the purposes of this policy, means a
member of one of the Churches affiliated to “Churches
Together in Britain and Ireland”.
Looked After Children: this term has the same
meaning as in section 22 of the Children Act 1989,

provided with accommodations by them (e.g. children
with foster parents).
Parent: means the adult or adults with legal

relations. The sibling must reside at the same address
as the child applying for a place. Whether a sibling
attends the school refers to the admissions year, not

preference will not apply for the following academic year.)

Definitions
A ‘looked after child’ is a child who is in the care of a
local authority or provided with accommodation by that
authority.
The term ‘brother or sister’ includes foster brothers and
sisters, half brothers and sisters or step brothers and
sisters. It does not include other relations. The sibling
must reside at the same address as the child applying for a
place.
‘Regularly’ is defined as normally attending church
at least fortnightly having done so for a period of 18
months. As a means of confirmation the church may
refer to documentary evidence such as the Sunday
school register, welcome cards etc.
Parents who have recently moved into the area and
have therefore not been involved at a local church for
the required time but have attended another church
up to their move are asked to provide details of the
Minister of their previous church so that the school can
contact them to confirm their commitment and regular
attendance at that church. Attendance at the previous
church will count towards the period referred to in
criteria 3 or 4 if the parents have attended the church
regularly. The provision of this information is vital if you
wish to be considered under these criteria.

54
Tie Break
Where the offer of places to all the applicants in
any of the categories listed above would still lead
to over subscription, priority will then be given to
those applicants who live nearest to the school using
a computerised mapping system, as approved by
Haringey (or relevant) Borough Council. The home
address will be measured from a point at the address
identified in the Local Land and Property Gazetteer to
the main school gate on Bradley Road.
Exceptional Needs
The Governing Body will give top priority after the
appropriate category of looked-after children, to an
application where compelling evidence is provided
at the time of application, from an appropriate
professional such as a doctor, priest or social worker, of
an exceptional social, medical, pastoral or other need
of the child, which can only be met at this school.
Multiple births
Where one twin/child of multiple births qualifies for a
place and the other sibling(s) do not qualify for a place,
both twins/multiple birth children will be promoted to
the sibling criterion. This approach will also apply to
siblings in the same year group who live together at the
same address.
Definitions
‘Address’ This is where the child resides for more
than 50% of the week. The address of another
relative or a temporary address is not acceptable.
Any attempt to mislead the school may result in the
withdrawal of an offer of a place, particularly where
proximity to the school forms part of the governing
body’s policy of admission.

IN YEAR ADMISSIONS
Admissions to schools at other times
Requests to transfer between schools
Applications for a school place at any time other than
starting reception or transferring to junior school are
called ‘In year’ admissions. To apply for a Haringey school,
please complete an in-year application form available
to download from the Haringey website or from the
Customer Service Centres. Supplementary Information
Forms (SIFS), required by some schools, will be available
directly from the schools. These schools will use the
information on the SIFS to apply their admissions criteria.
The admissions criteria we apply for community schools
is set out on page 22 of this booklet.
If you have moved into the area, your child can join a
school in the appropriate year group for their age. If
you wish to transfer your child for any other reason, you
should talk to your present school before making an
application. The Admissions Service do not encourage
changes from one local school to another. This is because
research shows that these moves can damage the
educational achievement and success of children unless
there are exceptional circumstances and transfer is in the
best interests of the child.
Fair access
If you would like to apply for a school outside Haringey,
please contact the borough the school is located in for
details on how to apply. Please note, this is different from
the process for applying to start Reception or transfer to a
Junior school.
Waiting lists
We have a protocol in place which ensures that
vulnerable young people who apply for a place outside
the normal round of admissions, and who are not on
the roll of a school, are offered a place quickly. Fair
Access admissions are shared fairly across all schools
and academies. Further information is available on our
website - www.haringey.gov.uk/schooladmissions
If the school you are interested in has a vacancy in your
child’s year group we will be able to offer a place. If there
are no places, your child‘s name can be added to the
waiting list. If a place becomes available at a school,
all the children on the waiting list are considered and
the place is offered in accordance with the school’s
admissions criteria. Waiting lists for community schools
will be held in the order of the admissions criteria set out
on page 22 of this booklet.
School admission appeals
If your child is not offered a place at one of the schools you
listed on your form you can appeal against this decision
to an independent appeal panel. Further information on
how you can appeal can be found on page 16. Please note
for applications for in year admissions there is no appeal
deadline. Appeals will be heard within 30 school days of
the appeal being lodged.

Charges for school activities
Haringey Council’s policy on charging for educational
activities and the remission of charges is available –
please telephone 020 8489 1000.
The Education Welfare Service works with schools,
pupils and families to encourage good school
attendance and high standards of pupil welfare. There
is a very clear link between good school attendance
and good academic achievement. There are also clear
links between poor school attendance and risk of being
involved in antisocial behaviour, crime and poor life
outcomes generally.
The Education Welfare Officer (EWO) will work with
young people who find regular school attendance
problematic. This may mean directly working with
young people themselves or referral to other agencies
(with parental agreement). They will ensure that
parents / carers are fully aware of their responsibilities
to ensure regular school attendance. They can give
advice on a range of issues such as matters relating to
child protection and bullying.
However, where such work has failed to improve school
attendance, the school based EWO will refer cases to
the central Education Welfare Service which may use
its full range of statutory powers, including legal action
where there is no good reason for absence from school.
