Admission into Year 7 or Reception for September 2017


17th April 2017


The offer of Reception places and Year 3 admissions into Stalyhill Junior School will be published to our online application system on April 17th 2017.  If you have submitted an online application by the 15th January 2017 deadline, you will need to log in to see your child's Reception allocation. If you are unable to access your online account, firstly try resetting your password. If you are still unable to access your account, letters will also be posted to the child’s home address and subject to the post; these should arrive April 18th 2017.

Should you need to discuss your allocation with a member of the school admissions team, they will be available from 8.30am on April 18th 2017 and onwards to help deal with your queries. You will also be able to find out the school’s criteria for allocating places in the ‘Starting Out’ booklet further down this page.

Due to data protection concerns, we are unable to tell you your child's allocation over the phone.
 

Late Applications


If you submitted a late application for Primary School after the closing date (15th January 2017) you will be unable to find out your allocated school on April 17th by logging into your account. You will need to wait until you receive your allocation letter through the post. These will be processed after all of the applications which were received on time.

The deadline for submitting your Reception or Year 7 application for September 2017 has now passed. You can still submit an online application but as you have missed the national deadlines; your application will be treated as late and processed after all the applications that were received on time.
