Academy Admissions

Welcome to the Harris Academy Admissions information page.

Open Mornings for 2018/19 Admissions

We understand that as parents you want to get a feel for the school your child may go to and so we warmly invite prospective parents to visit our new academy during the Autumn Term. Our open mornings include a tour of our building and the opportunity to meet the Principal, staff and pupils.

Dates for the Autumn Term 2019 open mornings will begin in September 2018. To arrange a visit, please contact main Academy Office on 020 3772 4573 or info@harrisprimaryeastdulwich.org.uk. Please do take the time to come and meet us. We look forward to seeing you soon.

We have 60 places available in Reception each year. If there are more than 60 applications, Looked After and Former Looked After Children will be admitted first, children with siblings at the Academy will be prioritised next.  All remaining places will be distributed on the basis of proximity between home and school, with children who live closest to our permanent building on Lordship Lane being prioritised


How to apply

Applications for Reception places are made through the London Borough of Southwark’s coordinated admissions process. The applications window for children starting school in September 2018 is now closed. For late applications, please click here http://www.southwark.gov.uk/info/200289/primary_school_admissions to find out what to do.


Reception Applications

The Academy has an admission number of 60 in Reception for September 2018

Applications for places in Reception should be made on the home Local Authority’s Common Application Form. These are accessible on the LA’s website and should be submitted in accordance with the LA’s published deadlines for applications (normally early to mid-January before the academic year in which the child is eligible for entry).

In-year applications

If you are looking for a place in Harris Primary Academy East Dulwich because you have recently moved into the area, or your child is at another primary school and you feel that a change of school would benefit their education and/or general well-being, you are entitled to apply for a school place. 

Since September 2013, the law allows you to apply directly to Harris Primary Academy East Dulwich.  Please contact Admissions at the Academy, (contact details above) to request an in-year admission form, or download the form (see below) Please note that there is no guarantee that a place will be available, but you have the right of appeal if you are refused a place.


For parents/carers who wish to appeal

Parent(s) wishing to appeal against the Academy’s decision on admissions, for any year group, should complete an Appeal Form (see below) stating the reason for the appeal, based on the published Admissions Criteria.

Completed forms should be sent to the Clerk to the Appeal Panel at:

Harris Primary Academy East Dulwich, 173 Lordship Lane, SE22 8HA.

Completed appeal forms for Reception 2018 entry must be received by the Academy by the closing date 4pm on 18th May 2018.

 

Appeals will be heard within 40 school days of the appeal deadline.

Appellants will be sent written notification of their appeal hearing at least 10 clear school days in advance of the hearing.

Appellants will be sent a copy of the school's case at least seven clear school days in advance of the appeal hearing.

If an appellant wishes to submit further evidence, which was not included with their initial appeal, they should ensure this is received at least seven school days (not counting the day of postage or the hearing) in advance of the appeal hearing.    

The Academy will arrange for an Independent Appeals Panel to consider the Academy's reasons for refusal and your reasons for wanting to attend the Academy.  

The Panel will consider the case put forward by you and the Academy. They must consider the admission arrangements for the Academy and the reasons why you want to attend that particular school.  The Panel must exercise its discretion by balancing the weight of your argument (for wanting to attend) against the Academy’s reasons for refusal.

The decision of the Independent Appeals Panel is binding on the admissions authority and the parents.
