Why choose a Hammersmith
& Fulham Primary School?
Dear parents and carers
52
Back page
It can be challenging and time-consuming when
you are choosing a school for your child, and we
want to make this process as easy as possible
for you.
That is why we have put together a brochure to
guide you through the steps on how to find a
school in Hammersmith & Fulham that is right
for your family.
Our primary schools are among the best in the
country, with the vast majority judged by Ofsted
as ‘outstanding’ or ‘good’.
Before you decide on your six preferences, it’s a
good idea to research the admission criteria of
schools, look at their Ofsted reports and visit
the schools you like. And remember you can
apply online.
I hope you find the information about the
borough’s schools and advice on how to apply
helpful, and wish you all the best in making
your decisions.
Cllr Sue Macmillan
Cabinet member for children and education
Hammersmith & Fulham
We must have your application by 15 January 2015

Introduction
Starting school
If your child is born between 1 September
2010 and 31 August 2011 they will be due
to start in the reception class in primary
school from September 2015.
Choosing a primary school for your child is a
big decision and this brochure is designed to
assist you with making your application for a
primary school place.
The closing date for applications is
Thursday 15 January 2015.
Pan-London co-ordinated
admissions system
Every year around 100,000 applications across
London are made for primary school reception places.
In 2010, all 33 London boroughs, together with
councils bordering the capital, signed up to a system
to co-ordinate admissions to their primary schools.
The co-ordinated admissions system is fairer and
means that, compared with previous years, more
parents are offered one of their preferred schools at
an earlier stage and fewer parents receive no initial
offer at all. It is also easier for parents to manage,
reducing anxiety for you and your children.
How the admissions
system works
Under the Pan-London co-ordinated admissions
system (PLCAS), all parents must list the schools they
want to apply for on their home local authority’s
common application form, ranking them in the order
of preference. This is important, as potentially only
one offer will be made and this will be from the
highest-ranked school able to make the offer.
This form (either paper or online) is returned to the
local authority for the area in which the child lives.
2
The local authorities taking part in the PLCAS then
use a secure computerised system to pass details of
the applications for schools in other areas. They also
co-ordinate the offer of places to make sure that
no child is offered more than one school place.
The decision as to whether a place can be offered
will continue to be made by the admissions authority
for each school (the school governors for those that
are not community schools). When a school receives
more applications than places available, also referred
to as being ‘oversubscribed’, its published admission
criteria will be used to decide the order in which
applicants will be offered places.
Local authorities will not pass on details to the
preferred school of where the school was ranked on
the common application form, and no school will be
told about other schools a parent has applied for.
Where a child is eligible to be offered a place at more
than one school, the local authority will hold the
offer for the highest preference on the parent’s form
and will release all other lower preference offers.
These places can then be offered to other applicants.
Potential offers are exchanged between local
authorities until they are in a position to make the
single best offer to parents using all available places.
All offers will be made on the same day –
16 April 2015.

The application process
a school’s criteria to assess your chances of being
offered a place. Schools use these criteria to decide
who should be offered a place first. Church schools,
for example, will give priority to applicants that
demonstrate practice of the respective faith.
In all cases, if a school receives more applications
than places available, the school’s admission criteria
must be applied. There is no guarantee that your
child will be offered a place at your preferred school,
even if it is the closest school to where you live.
You may also like to consider:
• Whether the curriculum and ethos of the school
suit your child’s needs.
• If the school has a breakfast club or after school
facitilies, if this is important to you.
• How your child will travel to school and how
much it would cost.
You should note that attendance at a nursery class
does not guarantee or give priority for admission to
the reception class of that school.
Gathering information
Be realistic: remember you can state
up to six preferences
To get a good overview of primary schools in
Hammersmith & Fulham, you should read the
information about the schools in this brochure.
Please remember that you can name up to six
preferences. Even after you have researched the
schools and you have decided where to apply,
you should not assume that your child will be offered
a place. You should also consider other schools
where you know you will have a good chance of
gaining a place.
You should then:
• Contact schools you are interested in directly to
ask for a copy of their prospectus, which will give
you more detailed information.
• Visit schools’ own websites to find out more
about them.
• Arrange to attend schools’ open days and evenings.
Take special care how you order
your preferences
Also:
• If you are interested in a school outside
Hammersmith & Fulham, you should contact
the borough in which the school is located for
more information.
• It is also important to be aware that, if you have
a younger child attending the nursery section of
the school you are applying to, sibling connection
does not apply. Only children that will be on roll of
the main school when the new child starts school
will be considered as a sibling link.
Considering the facts
Many schools receive more applications than they
have places. To avoid disappointment you should
consider whether your child has a realistic chance of
gaining a place at your preferred schools.
You must read the admission criteria of the schools
carefully as you need to know whether you meet
Naming other schools will not affect your chances of
being offered a place at a higher preference school.
Schools are not informed of other preferences you
have made or the order you place them.
The preferences you make are treated equally.
That means that no matter where you place a
particular school in your list of preferences, it will
be treated in the same way as all other applicants
who also chose that school – regardless of where
they have placed the school on their list.
The reason it is so important to list the schools in
the order of your preference is that when results are
returned to the school admissions team, we may
receive offers for more than one of your preferences.
The co-ordinated admissions system restricts applicants
to a single offer of a school place. As only one offer
can be made to your child, you will be offered the
highest school possible from the list you provided,
if an offer can be made. Any offers made lower in
your list will be withdrawn and put back in the system.
We must have your application by 15 January 2015

Guidance on completing your application
31 August 2011. If your child does not fall within
this birth range, and there are reasons to request that
your application be considered the following year,
please refer to page 10 for further information.
Your child’s home address
The address you give must be your child’s permanent
address on the closing date for applications. Please see
page 8 for more information.
Current nursery or early years provision
If your child attends a nursery, please indicate this in
the space provided. If your child does not attend any
early years provision, please leave the space blank.
You should note that attendance at a nursery class
does not guarantee or give priority for admission to
the reception class of that school.
Details of parent or carer
Guidance on completing your
online or paper application
Relationship to child
The online application is set out in a similar way
to the paper form. The following guidance applies
to both:
Please indicate your relationship to the child, e.g.
mother, father, grandmother, foster carer.
• Naming only the school you most want for your
child will not increase his or her chance of being
offered a place.
You do not need to complete this application form if
your child has a statement of special needs, as there
is a separate process that is outlined on page 48 in
this brochure. If your child is in the process of being
assessed for a statement, however, it is useful to
make us aware of this. Doing so will ensure that the
school that is eventually offered to your child is fully
aware before admission and can plan accordingly to
be able to meet your child’s needs.
• If we receive more than one application form for
your child, the most recently dated form will be
the one that we process. This will also apply to
online applications.
• Because of the demand for places at the most
popular schools, your first preference may
be unsuccessful.
• If you give only one preference, your child may not
get an offer at all on 16 April 2015. It is therefore
advised that you name further preferences and
ones that you consider to be realistic options.
Details of child and parent
or carer
Your child’s name
Please write your child’s name clearly and use the
same name that you have registered with your child’s
nursery school or children’s centre (if this applies).
Your child’s date of birth
You should be applying for a reception place if your
child was born between 1 September 2010 and
6
This section needs to be completed by the parent or
carer of the child, who will also need to indicate that
they have parental responsibility. Only one parent
needs to complete this section but you can indicate
the name of the other parent in the space provided
if you wish.
Children with a statement of special needs
Children in public care
Children in public care (‘looked after children’)
and children who have been adopted or made
subject to a child arrangements order or a special
guardianship order immediately after having been
looked after receive priority for admission to school.
The child’s social worker must submit a letter to the
admissions team confirming the legal status of the
child and the local authority to which the child
is/was in care, quoting the child’s full name and
current address.
Exceptional medical or social need
All schools have experience in dealing with children
with diverse medical and social needs. However,
in very few exceptional cases, there may be reasons
why a child may need to attend a specific school.
Please refer to page 8 for further information.
Apply online at www.lbhf.gov.uk/eadmissions
School preferences
to all schools, so check the criteria for the school
you are applying to. If you are applying under this
criterion please list the name and date of birth of the
former sibling and the school they attended in the
relevant box.
You can list up to six state maintained schools,
including any voluntary aided (church) schools,
foundation schools, free schools and academies,
and any schools in neighbouring local authorities,
in order of your preference. Please do not name
independent/private fee-paying schools on this form
– applications to these must be made separately.
Children of school staff
Please write the name and address of the school in
the space against each school preference. You do not
have to name six schools, but it is strongly advised
that you should use as many preferences as possible
and include at least one school where you have a
good chance of being offered a place.
You will need to read the admission criteria for
the schools to determine what chances you have
of gaining a place. Applying for only one school
will not improve your chances of getting a place at
that school.
Siblings (brothers or sisters)
If your child has a brother or sister who is currently
on roll, and will continue to be on roll, at one of
your preferred schools at the time of admission for
the child you are applying for, you must include
their details where requested. Relatives such as
cousins, uncles and aunts are not considered as
siblings, even if they are living at the same address.
Please be aware that the definition of sibling can vary
so you are strongly advised to check with relevant
boroughs or schools for their definition and if the
school gives priority to siblings.
Some schools give priority in their admission criteria
to children of staff. This does not apply to all schools,
so check the criteria for the school you are applying
to. Please indicate in the relevant section if you are
applying under this criterion, naming the school you
are applying for. You must also provide supporting
evidence from the school.
Reasons for preference
Please note that schools can only use their published
admission criteria to decide which children qualify
for a place. It is therefore not necessary to give
reasons for your preferences. If, however, there are
medical or social reasons why your child should
attend the school you have named, please indicate
that, as outlined above.
Declaration and signature of parent or carer
You must sign your application form to certify that
you have parental responsibility for the child for
whom you are applying, and that the address on the
form is the main residence of the child. If you provide
any false or misleading information on the form or in
supporting papers, or withhold relevant information,
it may render your application invalid and lead to the
withdrawal of an offer of a place.
Siblings of former pupils
Some schools give priority to siblings of former
pupils in their admission criteria. This does not apply
Using your personal information
The London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham
will handle information you have provided for
school admission purposes in line with the Data
Protection Act (DPA).
The information will be held in confidence with
only the necessary people working within the
combined children’s services able to access and
handle it.
The council has a duty under the Children’s Act
2004 to work with partners to develop and
improve services to children and young people in
the area. As such, the council may also use this
information for other legitimate purposes and
may share information (where necessary) with
other council departments and external bodies
responsible for administering services to children
and young people.
For the purpose of validating proof of address
for Hammersmith & Fulham resident applications,
the admissions team will refer to data held by
internal council tax records. The council also has
a duty to protect the public funds it administers
and, to this end, may use the information you
have provided on this form for the prevention and
detection of fraud.
Under the DPA you have the right to make a formal
written request for access to personal data held
about you or your child. For further information
please contact the admissions team.
We must have your application by 15 January 2015
7
The application process
Proof of address
The address you provide on your application must
be your child’s permanent address on close of
applications, 15 January 2015.
You must not use a business address, childminder’s
or relative’s address, or any address other than your
home address. Only in circumstances where the
relative or carer has legal guardianship, and is the
main carer, will a different address be considered
as the main residence. Evidence will be requested
to support this arrangement. If you have a genuine
50/50 shared-care arrangement with your child’s
other parent, it will be for you to determine the
address that will be used as the main home address
for your child’s application. Only one address will be
used throughout the application process. If you are
in receipt of child benefit, the address of the parent
making the claim will be used for the purpose of
the application.
You do not need to provide us with documentary
evidence of your address other than your council tax
reference number (as shown on your annual bill or
direct debit statement). If it is not possible to verify
your address by this method because you are not
liable or have recently moved, or further evidence is
required, you will be asked to provide one or more
of the following:
• A mortgage/rent statement or tenancy agreement.
• Recent utility bill. If you have moved, your closure
bill at your previous address.
• Child benefit/inland revenue documents (if you
are in receipt of either or both of these benefits).
• For members of the UK Armed Forces and Crown
Servants, an official letter confirming the address
of your quarters. This can be provided before
you have relocated in order that your application
is not disadvantaged.
• Any other recently dated documents that we
request depending on individual cases.
8
If you move into a property for a temporary period
purely for the purpose of trying to be nearer to a
school, we will use your normal, permanent residence
for the purpose of processing the application.
If it is discovered that the parent/carer/guardian
has deliberately provided an address that is not the
main residence of the child, any offer made that
may have deprived other applicants of a place will
be withdrawn. This may also apply if the child has
already started in the school. If it is decided not to
remove the offer, normally when the child has been
on roll for more than one term, any future sibling link
will not apply.
You must notify the admissions team if you move
address. Your new address will not be updated until
proof has been provided. If you move after 11 February
2015, your address will not be updated, as the process
for allocating places will have already started. We are
able to send correspondence to your new address
but your application will be processed using the
address you submitted at the close of applications.
If you own or rent more than one property, you
should state this on your form. You will also need
to provide proof of residence and occupancy for the
address at which your child lives most of the time
and is considered as the main family home.
Exceptional medical or
social need
If you feel there are exceptional reasons for your
child to be considered for a priority placement at
a particular school, you must indicate this in the
Apply online at www.lbhf.gov.uk/eadmissions
For own admission authority schools, and schools
located in other areas, any additional documentation
you provide will be passed on for the respective
school’s attention via the secure pan-London system.
The notification date is 16 April 2015. You will not
be advised before this date whether your request
for priority is agreed. If priority is not granted, your
application will be considered against the remaining
criteria for the requested school.
Additional forms you may
need to complete
All faith schools provide a supplementary information
form (SIF) and/or priest reference form that you are
advised to complete as set out in their admission
criteria. These forms must be returned to the
respective school by its closing date. This additional
information is necessary for the school governors
to determine whether applicants meet the school’s
faith requirements.
This is in addition to the usual application process: you
must include the school in your list of preferences on
your local authority application form. Your application
cannot be considered if you only submit a SIF to
the school.
These forms are required by all the voluntary aided
schools, with the exception of John Betts Primary
and The Fulham Bilingual (previously L’école Marie
d’Orliac). Forms can be obtained direct from the
schools, on their own websites or at www.lbhf.

what is required. This also applies to schools located
in other boroughs.
area provided in your application, giving reasons
supporting your case. Please be aware that not all
schools have this criterion in their policy, so it
is advised you check this first.
All requests for priority consideration must be
supported by a professional, such as a doctor or
social worker. It must be made clear in the professional
support for which school you are making a special
case – the reason why it is necessary for your child to
attend this school in particular; and the difficulties it
will cause your child to attend another school.
It is for you to decide how to support your case
and what documents to provide, but these must be
submitted by the closing date of 15 January 2015.
The schools admissions team is not responsible for
contacting professionals for information about your
case and any decision will be based on documents
you submit by the closing date.
Closing date for applications
The closing date for applications is Thursday 15
January 2015.
The advantages of applying online are detailed on
page 11 and it is highly recommended that you apply
online at: www.lbhf.gov.uk/eadmissions
If you prefer to complete a paper form, you must
return it by the closing date to the address shown on
the form. If you would like confirmation that we have
received your application, please indicate this when
you submit the form.
Make sure you use the correct postage if you return
your form through the post. Incorrect postage may
delay your application from reaching the admissions
team by the closing date.
We must have your application by 15 January 2015

gov.uk, before the closing date of 15 January 2015.
If you apply online, you can log back in to your
account to change/add/delete preferences up until
the closing date. Remember to re-submit your online
application if making changes.
It is not normally possible to accept any changes after
the closing date. If you do want to add preferences
or change your order of preferences after this date,
you must inform the school admissions team as
indicated above. In most cases, new or changed
preference schools will be considered only after all
on-time applications have been considered.
Applications for children
living abroad
Applications submitted by resident families working
or temporarily living abroad will be processed with
all other applicants and must be submitted by the
closing date. The address where the child is living at
the time of application, and at the closing date, will
be used for the purpose of processing. The applicant
must inform the admissions team on their return in
order for the address to be updated. Proof of address
and occupancy will be required.
Members of the UK Armed
Forces and Crown Servants
Applications submitted for children that may not
be living in the area but will be before September
2015, will need to be supported by an official letter
confirming the address for the quarters.
Requests to apply for reception
class in the following year
Requests for an application to be considered for
reception entry for the following year (September
2016) will need to be made by the closing date for
when the child would normally be expected to apply,
15 January 2015. This enables the application to still
be processed alongside all other applicants if the
request for later admission is refused by an
admissions authority.* Such requests would normally
apply to children that are ‘summer born’ (between
April and August) and there are significant reasons
that would benefit the child’s academic, social and
emotional development by starting reception the
following year as opposed to year 1.
10
It is for the admission authority of a school to decide
whether or not the individual child’s circumstances
present the need for entry to reception a year late.
Such requests will only be agreed in exceptional
circumstances. Professional support (for example,
from a GP, hospital consultant, social worker or
education professional) will need to be provided
outlining the reasons and benefits for the child to
start school a year late and therefore be placed outside
of their chronological year group. The headteacher
of the school(s) applied for will be informed of the
request and their view taken into account.
There is no right of appeal against the decision to
refuse a request for late entry. Applicants do retain
the right of appeal against a decision not to offer a
school place that has been refused for the year group
applied for.
If the admission authority approves the request,
the parent will be advised to re-apply in the following
year. However, there can be no guarantee of a place
being available, as this is dependent on the number of
applicants that apply in that year. It is not possible to
reserve a place in a school for the following year. If a
place is not available at any of the schools applied for,
the local authority will identify an alternative school
with a place available in the child’s chronological
year group.
* The local authority is the admission authority for community
and voluntary controlled schools. The governing body is the
admission authority for all other schools. Any decision is
applicable only to the school for which the admission authority
is responsible.
Late applications
If you are applying after the closing date, your
application will only be considered after the national
offer date, 17 April 2015. Your child’s name will
be added to the waiting lists along with those
unsuccessful applications considered in the initial
allocation round.
If there is an exceptional reason for applying after the
closing date and before 11 February 2015 (for example,
you have just moved into the area), it may be possible
to consider your application with those that were
made on time. Other circumstances will be considered
and each case decided on its own merit. Examples of
reasons that would not be accepted include failure
of a nursery school to remind a parent to apply,
late return from a family holiday or non receipt of
an application form due to postal issues. You are
advised to contact the school admissions team as
soon as possible on 020 7745 6434 if submitting an
application after the closing date.

How decisions are made
The process
The school admissions team will process any
preferences you have made for Hammersmith &
Fulham schools and pass on your child’s details to
schools that are responsible for their own admissions.
If you have applied for schools that are not located
in Hammersmith & Fulham, your preference(s) will
be passed to the local authority that maintains those
schools. At the same time, the school admissions
team will receive applications for Hammersmith
& Fulham schools from residents in other local
authorities. All these operations will be carried out
via the Pan-London Co-ordinated Admissions System.
The order of your preferences is not revealed to the
schools. This information is only known by your
home local authority and the authority where the
schools are located.
If any school has more applicants than places
available, the published admissions criteria will be
used to decide the order in which applicants will be
offered places. The same process is carried out across
London and decisions are made by all admissions
authorities by a common deadline and relayed back
to the home local authority. This co-ordinated process
eliminates multiple offers and will result in your child
being offered the highest potential school you named
in your list of preferences (if an offer can be made).
Examples are shown in the following tables:

A breakdown of last year’s admissions to each

schools section of this brochure. You will find
this information is available for all schools in the
respective local authority brochure that can be
accesses online (neighbouring London local authority
website addresses and contact details can be found
on page 51).
Notifying you of the outcome
All Hammersmith & Fulham resident applicants will
receive a notification letter* with the outcome of
their application on 17 April 2015.
If you made your application online, you will be able
to log onto the eAdmissions site using your username
and password during the evening of 16 April 2015 to
view the outcome of your application and accept or
decline any offer made.
The notification letter will include a reply slip which
you will be asked to return to the admissions team
by 30 April 2015. If you applied online, you will not
need to return this slip and can accept or decline
your offer online.
The notification letter will tell you the following,
depending on the outcome of your application:
• The name of the school that can offer you a place.
If it has not been possible to offer any of the schools
you applied for, the nearest alternative school will
be offered to you, if there is one available.
• That any preferences for schools listed lower than
the school offered have been withdrawn.
Brackenbury

You need to be realistic when deciding your school
preferences. This is because you may not receive an
offer at any of your preferred schools if your child
does not meet the criteria. That may happen if,
for example, you live too far away from the school
based on outcomes for previous years, or you name
an oversubscribed church school but do not attend
church and, therefore, would not meet a high enough
priority against the school’s admission criteria.
Criteria Outcome
met?
• The details of schools that have vacancies,
if you did not receive an offer for any of your
preferences, and you do not want to accept the
alternative school offered to you.
Apply online at www.lbhf.gov.uk/eadmissions
on-time or late applications. After the initial offer
day of 16 April 2015, the school admissions
team will offer any places that arise at community
schools. The governors will decide who is offered
any subsequent vacancies at voluntary aided schools
or academies in line with the published admission
criteria and waiting list ranking. You will be notified
of any subsequent offer than can be made by your
home borough’s admissions team.
* The notification letter does not go into the detail of why
a place could not be offered and can only inform you that
your child did not receive a high enough priority in the
oversubscription criteria. You will be able to obtain more
detailed information from the local authority where the
school is located or the school itself if it is voluntary aided.
Please contact the admissions team (in the first instance),
who will be able to advise you accordingly.
Waiting lists for Hammersmith
& Fulham Schools
Your child’s name will automatically be added to
the waiting list for any Hammersmith & Fulham
schools that could not be offered. Any schools you
named as a lower preference than the school offered
to your child would have been withdrawn under
the co-ordinated arrangements. You will need to
re-apply to these schools if you want your child to
be included on a waiting list.
If you have not been offered a place for a voluntary
aided school, academy or a school in another
borough and require waiting list information,
you will need to contact the school or the borough
that maintains the school.
All places on the waiting list are ordered in
accordance with the published admission criteria
for each school and will be offered to children as
vacancies arise with no differentiation between
A child’s position on the waiting list can go down
as well as up. For example, if a new application is
submitted for a community school and they live
closer to the school, the waiting list will need to be
revised. The offer of a place does not depend on the
length of time that your child’s name has been on
the waiting list and there can never be any guarantee
that a place will be offered.
Waiting lists for Hammersmith & Fulham community
schools are maintained by the admissions team.
You will be contacted at some point during the
academic year to indicate continued interest. If you do
not respond, your child’s name will be removed from
the list unless you inform us otherwise. This exercise
is carried out to ensure waiting lists only ever include
children that would take up an offer for a school if it
became available.
We must have your application by 15 January 2015
15
How decisions are made
Appeal arrangements
You have the right of appeal to an independent panel
against the decision to refuse your child a place at
any school which you named on the Hammersmith
& Fulham application form.
You should bear in mind, however, that by law, infant
classes should not exceed 30 and that the decision of
the appeals panel will be limited.
An appeal panel can only uphold an appeal where it
is satisfied either:
• that the child would have been offered a place if
the admission arrangements had been properly
implemented; the child would have been offered
a place if the arrangements had not been contrary
to mandatory provisions in the School Admissions
Code and the SSFA 1998; and/or;
• that the decision to refuse admission was not one
which a reasonable admission authority would
have made in the circumstances of the case.
The notification letter, which you should receive on
17 April 2015, will tell you how to lodge an appeal.
Appeals for community schools should be lodged
within 21 days of the admission decision and should
be directed to the admissions team at the address
shown on the back cover of this brochure to ensure
they are heard before the end of the summer term.
Appeals for voluntary aided schools, free schools
and academies, should contact the individual school
direct for information about their appeals process.
Each of these schools has its own arrangements in
place so make sure you lodge your appeal direct to
the governing body by the deadline set by the school.

Coram Children’s Legal Centre provides free,
independent advice on the admissions process
and legal advice on education issues. You can

8.00am to 8.00pm, for advice, or visit www.
childrenslegalcentre.com for more details.
Making final arrangements
for starting school
The law requires that your child must receive full-time
education from the start of the term following their
fifth birthday. A review of the primary curriculum in
2009 recommended that all parents should have the
right to start their child in the September following
their fourth birthday if they feel this is best for their
child. All offers will be made for children to start school
at the beginning of the autumn term, September
2015. Parents will also have the option to start their
child on a part-time basis or defer their child’s entry.
If you decide you prefer to defer your child’s entry
to the school offered, that place will be held for
your child and will not be offered to another child.
You would not, however, be able to defer entry
beyond the beginning of the term after your child’s
fifth birthday – nor beyond the academic year for
which the application was accepted. For example,
if your child was born in August 2011, you will not
be able to defer entry until September 2016, as this
will be the start of the next academic year.
If you decide that you would prefer your child to
start school on a part-time basis, the school will
inform you of the part-time hours available that your
child will be expected to attend. Each school will
have different arrangements in place, which will be
dependent on their staffing, resources and how their
infant classes are organised. You will not be able to
choose your own part-time hours.

Frequently asked questions
Does the law guarantee my
child a place in the school
of my choice?
No. The law states that parents may express a
preference for any school; however, if more parents
express a preference for a school than the number of
places available, there has to be an order of priority
to decide which children to offer places to. The law
allows parents to appeal to an independent panel
if their child is refused a place at a school of their
preference. Please refer to the section on appeals
for further information.
Will a school know where I
listed them on my application?
Can I change or withdraw
my preferences after I have
submitted my application?
Once you have submitted your application, you
can change the order of your preferences and the
schools you have listed up until the closing date.
Changes cannot be made to your application after
the closing date.
If I decide that I prefer a
school that I listed lower than
the school I was offered, can I
be considered for a place?
Any preferences that are listed lower than the
school offered are automatically withdrawn, so any
lower preferences will no longer exist. Any requests
after offers have been made for lower preferences
will be treated as a new late application. If the school
has a vacancy, then it will be possible to offer your
child a place and withdraw the original offer made
to you. If the school is full your child’s name will
be added to the waiting list in accordance with the
admission criteria.
No. All applications are treated equally against the
school’s published admission criteria. Schools are
not provided with the preference order, as it has
no relevance to the decision making process.
Do I have priority for a
school place in the borough
that I live in?
No. It is against the law for local authorities to give
priority to its own residents.
The distance that you have
calculated from my home to the
school is further away than the
distance I have calculated on a
measuring system I used on the
internet. What do I do?
I have just moved into the
borough. How do I apply for
a school place?
If you have just moved in to the borough of
Hammersmith & Fulham and your child is due to start
reception, you should contact the School Admissions
Team on 020 7745 6434 as soon as possible.
You will not be able to apply direct to the schools.
Hammersmith & Fulham’s geographical measuring
system is used for calculating distances from home
to school. Distances measured by other means
(e.g. private car, pedometer or on the internet) are
likely to be calculated on a different basis and should
not be relied upon as evidence that Hammersmith
& Fulham’s distance calculation is incorrect.
Hammersmith & Fulham’s measurement system
is designed to be precise, reliable and consistent,
and is used for all applications.
We must have your application by 15 January 2015
17
School by school information and admission criteria
Community primary schools in Hammersmith & Fulham
Community schools are maintained by the council,
which also sets their admissions requirements.
The governing bodies of voluntary aided schools,
free schools and academies are responsible for the
schools and set the admission requirements and
decide which children to admit.
In each of the schools’ entries that follow there is
a section outlining the way in which places were
offered for September 2014. The admission number
stated is the number of children the school can
admit into its reception classes. You can compare this
figure with the number of people who expressed a
preference for the school on their application form
last year, shown in the ‘Applications received for
2014’ line. When on-time applications exceed the
number of places available, the school’s admissions
criteria are used to decide who should have a place.
Where a school is oversubscribed, home-to-school
distance can be a major factor in allocating places,
so please note the greatest home-to-school
18
distance for which a place was allocated in 2014.
The ‘Applicants receiving offer in 2014’ line in each
school’s entry indicates whether all applicants who
expressed a preference were able to receive an offer.
Where that was not the case, i.e. there were more
applicants than places, it states the distance from
home to school of the last pupil admitted on national
offer day, indicating how close you needed to live
to gain a place. (All distances are shown in miles).
Each entry shows, where relevant, how many places
were allocated to children with a statement of special
education need (SEN), looked after children (LAC)
and siblings.
For all schools, revised legislation has extended the
priority given to children in public care, referred to as
‘looked after children’ (LAC), to include those who
ceased to be looked after because they were adopted
or became subject to a child arrangements order or
special guardianship order.
Apply online at www.lbhf.gov.uk/eadmissions
Community primary schools
The decision to admit children to a community
primary school is made by Hammersmith & Fulham
Council in accordance with its admissions policy for
the school. The arrangements that follow apply to all
community primaries.
All applicants must complete and submit their
application by the closing date, naming the school
as one of their preferences on their local authority’s
common application form. Hammersmith & Fulham
residents can apply online at www.lbhf.gov.uk/
eadmissions
3. Brothers and sisters of children already on the roll
of the school, who will still be in the school at the
time the applicant is admitted. This includes half
brothers or half sisters, adopted brothers or
sisters, stepbrothers or stepsisters or the children
of the partner of the parent or carer, provided
that they live at the same address as the applicant.
Please note sibling priority does not apply to to
children attending the nursery of the school.
Any child with an Education, Health and
Care (EHC) plan or a Statement of Special
Educational Need (SEN) that names the school
must, by law, be admitted, without reference
to the oversubscription criteria.
The number of places available to be offered may
be affected by any decision to name a particular
school for children with a statement of special
educational need.
If, in any of the categories 1, 2 or 3 there
are more applicants than there are
places available, priority will be given to
applicants who live nearest the school on
the basis described in 4 below. If there are
two or more applicants in categories 1, 2
or 3, who live at exactly the same distance
from the school, the offer of a place will be
decided by random allocation.
4. Children who live nearest the school. Nearness to
the school will be calculated using a straight line
(as the crow flies) measurement from the child’s
home ‘address point’ determined by Ordnance
Survey Data to the centre of the school grounds
as determined by Hammersmith & Fulham Council
using its computerised measuring system. The child
living closest to the school will receive the highest
priority. Accessibility by car or public transport
will be disregarded.
Admission policy/criteria
If there are more applications to the school than
there are places available, then Hammersmith &
Fulham Council will allocate places in the following
order of priority:
1. Children in public care,* also known as looked
after children in care of the local authority
and children who have been adopted or made
subject to a child arrangements order or special
guardianship order immediately following having
been looked after. The child’s social worker
must submit a letter to the London Borough of
Hammersmith and Fulham confirming the legal
status of the child and the local authority to
which the child is/was in care, quoting the child’s
full name and current address.
Tie break
If applicants share the same address point (for
example, those who live in the same block of flats or
shared house) priority will be given to those who live
closest to the ground floor and then by ascending
flat number order. Routes will be measured to four
decimal places (if necessary). If, in the unlikely event
that two or more applicants live at exactly the same
distance from the school; the offer of a place will be
decided by random allocation.
Twins, triplets and multiple births
* Children in public care has the same meaning as in
section 22 of the Children Act 1989, and means any
child in the care of the local authority or provided with
accommodation by them (e.g. children with foster carers).
2. The director of school’s services, as advised
by senior officers, may on an individual basis
give priority to applicants who can demonstrate
that admission to a particular community school
is necessary on the grounds of professionally
supported medical or social need. Parent/carers
must supply details of any such special factors
at the time of the original application together
with recent supporting documentation. Such
applications will not be considered without
professional support, such as a letter or report from
a doctor, consultant or social worker, which must
be no more than six months old. All information
submitted will be regarded as confidential.
Twins, triplets and multiple birth children will be
considered as individuals alongside all other applicants.
Every effort will be made to accommodate twins or
multiple birth children within the same school even
if this means that the published admission number
(PAN) will be exceeded.
Children attending nursery class at a school
Parents of children attending the nursery class at a
school must reapply for a reception class place.
There is no automatic transfer from the nursery class
to the reception class at a school. The infant or primary
school where a child attends a nursery class will not
necessarily be able to offer a place in reception.
We must have your application by 15 January 2015

School by school information and admission criteria
Academies, free schools and
voluntary aided primary schools
Each of these schools has its own admission criteria,
on which the governors base the allocation of places.
You will need to check that you meet the criteria of
the schools to which you are thinking of applying.
You must read the criteria carefully, especially if the
school’s preference information for last year shows
that the school received more applications than
places available. When this happens, the admission
criteria must be applied and places are offered in the
priority order that is set out. The way in which places
were offered for September 2014 is given at the end
of the entry for each school.
Remember that church schools will give priority to
applicants that demonstrate practice of the respective
faith. These schools provide a supplementary
information form (SIF) and/or priest reference form
that you will need to complete.
You must include the church school(s) in your
list of preferences on the main application if you
want to apply for a place. If you complete the
SIF only, your application will not be considered.
The SIF and all additional documents required must
be returned to the school by the date it specifies.
This is also the case for church schools in neighbouring
local authorities. If you name the school in your
application and do not complete its SIF, it will reduce
the chances of your child being offered a place.
The school will not have any information to consider
when judging your application against their admission
criteria and your application will be ranked very low
when decisions are made. It is therefore important
for both forms to be completed.
Each school has provided a list, in order of
priority, of their key admissions criteria.
Please note that the policies listed here are
summarised versions only, you will need
to refer to the full admissions policy and
arrangements, as well as any SIFs, which are
available direct from the school, the school’s
website, or www.lbhf.gov.uk/schooladmissions
The information given on the following pages for
the church schools in the ‘Applicants receiving offer
in 2014’ gives the cutoff point for the last offer,
e.g. if it states that the last offer was under criterion 6,
distance 1.354 miles, it means that all applicants who
met criteria 1 to 5 were offered places and remaining
places were offered to those meeting criterion 6,
decided on a home to school distance basis.
If you need further advice on the chances of your
child being eligible for a place at these schools,
please contact the school.
Common definitions
Looked after children
The revised School Admissions Code requires that
priority to looked after children (children in public
care) be extended to include those who ceased
to be looked after because they were adopted or
became subject to a child arrangements order or
special guardianship order. The child’s social worker
must submit a letter to Hammersmith & Fulham’s
admissions team confirming the legal status of
the child and the local authority to which the child
is/was in care, and quoting the child’s full name and
current address.
Exceptional medical or social need
If this priority forms part of the school’s admission
criteria, the governors may, on an individual basis,
give priority to applicants who can demonstrate
that admission to the school is necessary on the
grounds of professionally supported medical or social
needs. Parents/carers must supply details of any such
special factors at the time of the original application,
together with recent supporting documentation.
Such applications will not be considered without
professional support such as a letter or report from
a doctor, consultant or social worker.

All other applicants.
Up to 60% of the outstanding places once Looked
After Children have been accounted for will be

will be treated as Open places taking no account of
Christian Commitment.
Tie break
Where two children sit within the same category,
living exactly the same distance away, but where
only one place is available, a decision will be made
through drawing lots.
When determining places, applications are sorted
into one of the four categories defined below and
are ranked within each category by straight line
distance from the school with those living closest
ranked highest. Places will be allocated with
each category considered in the following order:
Category 1, Category 2, Category 3 and Category 4.
Multiple birth
Category 4 Open places
In circumstances where there is one place in a class
and twins are to be offered, a 31st place will be
created to accommodate both children.
Category priority order
Each Category is ranked by distance from the school
and taken in priority order.
We must have your application by 15 January 2015
27
School by school information and admission criteria
attending the nursery school will not be a factor
giving rise to priority. In the case of twins or
brothers and sisters in the same year group, where
there is only one place available in the academy,
both will be considered together as one application.

considered against the criteria and order set out below:
1. Looked After Children and children who have
been previously looked after (pursuant to the
Admissions Code).
2. Children of staff at the school where there
is a demonstrable skill shortage – children
of members of staff will have priority in the

filling a post for which there is a demonstrable
skill shortage. ARK Schools is required to approve
the Principal’s designation of such posts and
confirm the assessment that a member of
staff appointed meets the requirements of the
shortage. Priority will be limited to one place for
each form of entry in any year.

child of a person who will have been employed
in the academy for two or more years at the time
the application for admission is made. Priority will

Holy Cross Catholic Primary School, in partnership
with the London Borough of Hammersmith &
Fulham and the L’école Marie D’Orliac, admits an
additional 28 reception age pupils each year for a
bilingual (French and English) education.
Pupils, drawn from both schools, are taught together
by teachers from each of the schools, using an
agreed common curriculum.
Applications for the bilingual places at The Fulham
Bilingual are entirely separate to those for Holy Cross
School and subject to different admissions criteria.
Parents applying for a bilingual place may also apply
for a foundation place at Holy Cross Catholic Primary
School, in which case they must name both on the
common application form, ranking them separately
as two of the six preferences.
Admission to the bilingual course will be determined
without reference to religious commitment, in
accordance with oversubscription criteria similar
to those used for community primary schools in
the borough.

2. Children defined as being in priority need within
the categories of need defined by the Children
Act 1989, or as having an otherwise exceptional
educational, medical or social need which can
most appropriately be met by the bilingual
course at Holy Cross School. The governing body
will normally require written evidence from an
appropriate professional (see explanatory notes).
•Both sides of Fulham Palace Road, including
Robert Owen House.
•Continuing along Fulham High Street to
Putney Bridge.
• South side of Lillie Road.
• River Thames is the south boundary.
• Railway line is the east boundary.
Exceptional need
If you think your child has an exceptional educational,
social or medical need for a place at The Fulham
Bilingual, your case must be supported by documented
evidence from a doctor, health visitor, social worker or
other medical professional, which must be submitted
at the time of your original application.
You will need to show why The Fulham Bilingual is
the only school that meets your child’s social or
medical need. The case must be a clear connection
between the child’s need and an explanation of the
difficulties which would be caused if the child were
to attend another school. The decision as to whether
your child qualifies on medical or social grounds is
made by the governing body.
Siblings
Sibling refers to brother or sister, half brother or sister,
adopted brother or sister, step brother or sister, or the
child of the parent/carer’s partner where the child for
whom the school place is sought is living in the same
family unit at the same address as that sibling.
Apply online at www.lbhf.gov.uk/eadmissions
Multiple births
Temporary address
If a tie-break involves twins or triplets, the governing
body will offer places over the published admission
number to accommodate the children.
For admissions purposes, we will not accept a
temporary address if you still possess a property that
was used as a home address, nor will we accept a
temporary address used solely or mainly to obtain
a school place. We reserve the right to review the
offer of a place and consider options including
the withdrawal of the place and the status of a
sibling link for a future applicants where it becomes
apparent that a false or misleading application was
provided to obtain a place at the school.
Tie break
If any applicants share the same address, i.e., live in
the same block of flats or shared house, priority will
be given to those closest to the ground floor and
then by ascending flat number order. In the event
more than one child has the same distance,
a decision will be made using random allocation.

at the time of admission will increase the priority of
an application within each category. In the context
of these admission criteria, “sister or brother” means

brothers and sisters or adopted brothers and sisters.
A sibling relationship does not apply when the older
child(ren) will leave before the younger one starts.
Exceptional need
The Governing Body will give top priority to an
application within a category where compelling
written evidence is provided by a third party
professional (such as a doctor, social worker or priest)
at the time of application of a special educational
or other need of the child which can only be met at
this school.

Number of 30 will be offered to those whose home
is nearest the school. This will be measured using a
straight line (as the crow flies) measurement from
the child’s home address to the school main entrance

or sister, half brother or sister, stepbrother or sister,
or adopted brother and sister.

If there are more applications to the school than
there are places available, places will be allocated in
the following order of priority.

After Children in care of the local authority
and children who have been adopted or made
subject to a child arrangements order or special
guardianship order immediately following having
been looked after.
2. Applicants who can demonstrate that admission
to the school is necessary on the grounds of
professionally supported medical or social
need. Parent/carers must supply details of any
such special factors at the time of the original
application together with recent supporting
documentation. Such applications will not be
considered without professional support, such

those who live in the same block of flats or shared
house) priority will be given to those who live closest
to the ground floor and then by ascending flat
number order. In the unlikely event that two or more
applicants live at exactly the same distance from the

School by school information and admission criteria
Priority will be given to applicants living
closest within each parish measured as the
crow flies from home to the main school
entrance. If places are not filled from one
parish then the balance of places will be
allocated to the applicants of the other parish.
Where the offer of places to all the applicants in any
of the sub-categories listed above would still lead
to oversubscription, the places up to the admission
number will be offered to those living nearest the
school. For applicants from the same block of flats,
or who live the same distance from the school,
random selection by the drawing of lots in the
presence of an independent witness will be used
as the final tie-breaker.
Multiple births
In the case of twins or multiple birth applications
from one family, where one remaining place is
allocated to one of the children, all other applicants
of the multiple will be offered a place. This will also
apply to siblings applying to the same year group.
* In these cases the application must be supported by a
Baptismal Certificate and a priest’s written reference.

Child employment and children in entertainment and;
Elective home education and children missing
education.
This team is based at Kensington Town Hall and can
be contacted on 020 8753 2877.
Children with disabilities team
A disability can make it difficult for a child to
participate fully in the community and develop
independence. Great pressure can be put on parents
and carers because of the care children need.
The disabled children’s team is here to offer support.
In-year admissions
An in-year admission is when an application for
a school place needs to be made outside of the
normal admission round, which is the first year of
entry to a primary or secondary school. In most
cases your reason for making an application will be
that you have moved to a new area, moved into the
authority from abroad or you would like to transfer
your child from one school to another. There is a

place. Further information and guidance can be

Support for school attendance
After you have been allocated a school place,
making sure your child attends school regularly and
on time every day is really important, not only to
make sure they have the best possible chance to get
the most out of their education but also because
children who are not in school are more likely to
get into trouble outside of school or be vulnerable.
Parents have a legal responsibility to get their
children to school but if you are having difficulties
with this it is important you talk to school staff who
are there to help you.
You or school staff may feel you need some extra
help. Each borough has professional staff who work
with families with children who are not attending
school. They are based in the locality teams if you
live in Hammersmith & Fulham (tel. 020 8753 6600)
or Westminster (tel. 020 7641 4000) or the early
help team if you live in Kensington & Chelsea
(tel. 020 7598 4405). These multi-disciplinary teams
work with schools, children and parents to improve
children’s attendance and reduce unnecessary
absence and truancy.

We are a team of professionals who work with
children who have severe and permanent disabilities
and/or health conditions. We support families who
may require additional help to meet their children’s
needs. The team has social workers, support staff,
occupational therapists and a transitions worker,
all of whom work closely with other professionals
from health and education. For more information

Special Educational Needs
The majority of children and young people with
Special Educational Needs (SEN) or disabilities will
have their needs met within local mainstream early
years settings, schools or colleges. Hammersmith &
Fulham Council ensures that there are arrangements
in place within these settings for identifying,
assessing and making provision for pupils with SEN.
If you believe that your child has a special learning
need, it is always advisable to discuss this with the
head teacher when you visit the school to which you
are thinking of applying. Each school has a budget
for meeting the needs of pupils with SEN and will be
able to talk to you about the support they provide
for children with learning needs and how they will
meet your child’s needs. The local authority expects
mainstream schools to work with parents to track
children’s progress and record the outcomes and
agreed provision in an SEN support resourced plan.
Some children and young people with SEN or
disabilities may need a level or type of support that
cannot be provided by a mainstream school and/or
within a mainstream school’s budget. For such pupils
it may be necessary to carry out an Education, Health
and Care (EHC) needs assessment. The local authority
Apply online at www.lbhf.gov.uk/eadmissions
can then decide whether an EHC plan should be
written. An EHC plan details how a child’s additional
needs will be met. If your child has an EHC plan or
a Statement of SEN, the information set out in this
brochure relating to the application process does not
apply to you. To discuss the arrangements which will
need to be made for your child please contact the
Special Educational Needs team on 020 7361 3311.
To see the location of special schools in the authority
refer to the map on page 52.
Education Psychology Service
Every school has the support of an educational
psychologist – a specialist in how children and young
people develop and learn. Help may be asked for
when pupils show difficulties over their behaviour,
learning or progress generally in school.
Educational psychologists will work with children
only if the parents agree. Parents themselves may
ask for their help through the school. For more
information, contact the Education Psychology
Service on 020 7361 3311.
The FIS can advise on how to choose the type of
childcare or early years service that best suits your
needs and those of your child. The service can also
provide you with information on help with childcare
costs, including the three and four-year-old offer for
nursery education. You may also find the information
on nursery and early years centres useful, please refer
to page 50.

education can travel free on bus and tram services.

Community nursery schools & early years centres
Information and how to apply
How places are allocated
Attending a nursery school or class gives your child a
valuable introduction to school. It provides children
with the opportunity to develop their skills and mix
with girls and boys of their own age.
If you wish to apply for a nursery place, contact the
school or centre for an application form. The decision
whether your child is admitted to a community
nursery school or class is taken by the headteacher,
who makes offers according to the admissions
criteria. The criteria used are the same as those for
community primary schools (see page 19).
Hammersmith & Fulham Council will ensure that a
free or subsidised nursery place is available for three
and four-year-olds in the borough. In addition to
the free places provided in our own nursery schools
and classes, funded part-time places are available in
private, voluntary and independent sector nurseries
and pre-schools, giving parents a range of provision
to choose from. This funding is called the ‘three
and four-year-old offer’ – visit www.lbhf.gov.uk
for details.
Nursery schools and primary school nursery
classes admit children after their third birthday.
Check with your nursery or school for details of their
own admission arrangements.
A list of private, voluntary and independent sector
nursery schools and pre-schools, including details
of which ones offer the three and four year old
funding, is available from the Family Information
Service (FIS). The service provides impartial
information and advice on the range of services
in the borough for children and young people.
You can get advice on how to choose the type
of childcare or early years service that best suits
your needs and those of your child. Up-to-date lists
with contact details are available for childminders,
nurseries, pre-schools, crèches, after-school care,
holiday play schemes, children’s centres, parent
and toddler groups and activities for children
and young people.
Call 0845 313 3933 or email [email protected]
Alternatively look online at the FIS directory at
www.lbhf.gov.uk/fisd for full listings.
Voluntary aided or church schools make their own
decisions about who should be admitted to the nursery,
based on their published admissions criteria. Details
are available from the headteacher. Contact details for
voluntary aided schools can be found on page 27.
