Non-routine or in-year admissions are administered by the Governing Body at Great Harwood St John’s CE Primary School. It sometimes happens that a child needs to change school other than at the ‘normal’ time; such admissions are known as non-routine or in-year admissions. Parents wishing their child to attend this school should call 01254 885926 to arrange to visit the school. They will be provided with an application form once they have a definite local address. If there is a place in the appropriate class, then the governors will arrange for the admission to take place. If there is no place, then the admissions committee will provide information about how to appeal. Appeals for children moving into the area will not be considered until there is evidence of a permanent address, e.g. exchange of contracts or tenancy agreement with rent book. We do not operate a waiting list system for non-routine admissions.
Please note that you cannot re-apply for a place at a school within the same school year unless there has been relevant, significant and material change in the family circumstances.
