Nottinghamshire County Council - Apply for A School Place

At Forest Glade Primary School we offer 30 places for the Reception (Foundation Stage 2) Year and they will be considered in accordance with the admission criteria. We also have 14 Foundation Stage 1 places which means that your child can come to us part time the term after they are four if the arrangement suits your situation. However, like many other schools attendance in our early years (Foundation Stage 1) at the school does not automatically guarantee a Reception (Foundation Stage 2) place.

If you would like to apply for a part time (Foundation Stage 1) place please ring our school office on 01623 452770.

Admission Arrangements

In the event of over-subscription, the following criteria will be applied, in priority order, to determine which applications will be granted:

1. Children who are looked after.

2. Children, who live in the catchment area and who, at the time of admission, will have a brother or sister attending the school.

3. Other children who live in the catchment area.

4. Other children who live outside the catchment area.

In the event of over-subscription within any criterion, preference will normally be given to children who live nearest to the school as the crow flies. Distances are measured from the entrance to the child’s home to the principal entrance of the main administrative building of the school using the County Council’s distance measuring software.  

Where a school has more applications than places available, it is considered to be oversubscribed. The admission over subscription criteria are used to decide the order in which places can be allocated. Remember that living in a catchment area, attending a nursery or children’s centre, attending a linked school or having a brother or sister attending a school does not guarantee that your application will be successful.

It may, however, for some admission authorities give your application higher priority within their admission over subscription criteria.

All Nottinghamshire schools have a Published Admission Number (PAN). This is the number of school places that must be offered in each relevant age group in a school.

If you apply online you will be sent an email on offer day. You can then log in to the online application service to view the outcome for each of your preferences.

If you apply by telephone or by completing a paper application, the outcome of your preferences will be posted to you second class on offer day.

You have the right of appeal against any preference that is refused in the intake year group and will be placed on a waiting list.

Waiting lists are held for all schools in Nottinghamshire where the number of applications received is greater than the number of available places in the intake year group.

Special Circumstances

Special consideration may be given to applications that are supported by written evidence from a doctor, social worker or other relevant professional giving reasons why the school is the only school which could cater for the child’s particular needs. This might include medical needs, mobility support needs, special educational needs or other social circumstances. The evidence must be presented at the time of application.

The appropriate designated officers will consider written evidence provided to decide whether the application may be processed as special circumstances. Admission under special circumstances will have priority over all but the first numbered criterion. 

Admissions to year groups other than the intake year

Applications for admission to other year groups will normally be considered in relation to the published admission limit (30 pupils), which applied when the year group was first admitted to the school, although infant class size restrictions will also need to be considered.  If places are available within the year group, applications will be considered in accordance with the above admission criteria.  If places are available, the child will normally be admitted to the school.

 Further guidance on the way in which applications are dealt with including:

•           Preferences for more than one school

•           Late applications

•           The way waiting lists are maintained and used

Guidance on all these processes can be found in Nottinghamshire County Council’s
