...putting children first
Dear Parent/Carer Deciding on a school for your child is probably one of the most important decisions that you will make as a parent/carer.This guide will help you decide which school you would like your child to attend. It tells you about the Local Authority (LA) schools in the area and explains how school places are allocated. It also provides you with information about other educational opportunities, including early years provision in the city. In order to supplement the information in this guide, each school also publishes its own prospectus, offering you further details about the school and the education your child will receive if admitted.You can get a copy of the prospectus by contacting the school directly. (VA) church schools differ from this in some important respects, but the governing bodies of all three voluntary aided schools are also committed to their local communities. This approach has worked well, and the recent public debate about school admissions demonstrates how difﬁcult it is to devise a fair system that is based on anything other than proximity to the nearest school. Over the last six years, there has been a signiﬁcant increase in the number of parents being allocated their ﬁrst preference, and a parallel decrease in the number of appeals. Every year, however, there are disappointments, and the LA is continually seeking ways of improving the system.
It is now six years since the LA undertook a widespread consultation over the allocation of secondary school places and a new policy was agreed.The new policy is based on the principle of ‘local schools for local children’. Each community secondary school has been allocated its own ‘catchment’ area. Parents are still able to express a preference for any school in the city whether they live in the catchment area or not but if there are too few places available for the number of applicants, admissions will be allocated according to the ‘over-subscription criteria’ included in the guide. Admission arrangements for the voluntary aided
York schools are good schools, standards are high and we are proud of the education we offer for children in York. I hope you ﬁnd the information in this guide useful.

TAKING PRIDE IN OUR CITY –
HELPING OUR CHILDREN TO GROW UP SAFELY
You are planning for your child to start at a ﬁrst school or a new school. Whichever school you express a preference for and/or are allocated a place at, we hope that you will work with us to make the City a safe place to live and work. All of our schools will teach children about values, respect, about citizenship and about the needs of others. All schools have statements about their aims and values and they will ask you to commit your support to helping them to educate your children about them. We hope that you can do this. There are some children and young people who behave in ways, which are anti-social. As parents, you won’t want your child to behave in anti-social ways but it is not always easy to say no to children, to stop them seeing bad behaviours and copying them. Our Council is committed to tackling anti-social behaviour because this is one of the most important ways of developing pride in our City. The Council, and its partners, are working hard to tackle the problems of youth crime, of vandalism, drug use and teenage pregnancy. As well as these very serious problems involving a small number of young people, most families go through some sort of difﬁculties from time to time. Organisations in the City have pooled their resources to set up a parenting strategy.Through this every school in the City has access to specialist staff or community organisations who can help you to deal with these times. Some of the support services are listed elsewhere in the guide. As a part of the Council’s actions to tackle anti-social behaviour, to provide help for parents and to give all children opportunities to play and socialise safely, a webbased directory of services and activities is being developed through Yortime.
Probably one of the best ways to help your child stay within the boundaries of acceptable behaviour is to help them to develop self-esteem. If they are happy, if they feel valued and if they feel that they can talk openly about worries, then they are far less likely than others to get led on by their ‘friends’ or get involved in risk taking behaviour. A good way to develop self-esteem is to comment to your child when they are doing things right, not just when they are doing things wrong. It’s about making the time to encourage the right sort of behaviours.

PUPILS WITH STATEMENTS OF SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS
Where children have a statement of SEN, parental preference for either a mainstream or special school place is considered and agreed as part of the statutory assessment or annual review process. Please note that there is a different admission and appeals process for children with statements. Further details are available from the SEN Co-ordination Service on (01904) 554319.
You may ﬁnd the following descriptions helpful as you read the guide.They explain the types of schools available:
1 COMMUNITY SCHOOLS
These are owned and maintained by the Local Authority (LA), which in York is City of York Council.
2 VOLUNTARY SCHOOLS
In an LA school, the governors run the school in line with LA policies.The governors appoint staff and manage the school budget.
These were founded by voluntary organisations such as the Church of England, the Roman Catholic Church, other churches and educational foundations.The ethos of the school is likely to be inﬂuenced by the ideas of the organisation which founded it. There are two types of voluntary school: • Voluntary controlled schools Although these were founded by voluntary organisations, these schools are entirely maintained by the LA.Voluntary controlled schools are similar to LA schools.The LA decides the arrangements for children to be admitted to these schools.
The LA is the admissions authority for its maintained schools and has sole authority for the admissions process.
The list of schools in Section I gives the type of each school.
• Voluntary aided schools These schools are not fully maintained by the LA.The governors of voluntary aided schools have more power than those of other schools – they employ all the staff, they decide what the school term dates will be and they share the maintenance of the school buildings with the LA. The governors decide which children are admitted to voluntary aided schools.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN CONSIDERING A SCHOOL IN YORK
There are new, measurable statistics such as examination results, which inform you how schools are performing. When looking for a school for your child you should, however, look beyond these statistics and look to the quality of the wider educational experience offered by each school.To assist you, here are a number of questions which you may wish to consider when deciding which school you would prefer your child to attend.
WHAT YOU MIGHT ALSO LOOK FOR WHEN VISITING A SCHOOL WITH YOUR CHILD
• Is the school a reasonable distance from home? • Are there other staff in the school who assist the children with their learning? • What are the average class sizes in the school? • How does the school monitor a pupil’s progress and how is this reported to parents? • Are parents encouraged to support their child’s learning? • How are pupils with special educational needs catered for? • What help will be given to a pupil who has difﬁculty with a particular subject? • Does the school make special provision for gifted and talented pupils? • How does the school recognise and reward achievement? • What extra-curricular activities are there? • How does the school care for the welfare of its pupils? • What is the school’s discipline policy? • Does the school set homework? • Can books be borrowed to take home? • What is the school’s uniform policy? If you are considering a church school you may have additional questions to consider.You also need to be clear of the different admission policies for these schools.
• Are you and your child given a friendly welcome from both staff and pupils? • Are you provided with up to date and useful information? • Are you given the opportunity to ask relevant questions, and are these answered well? • Is the school well equipped? • Do pupils have unlimited access to books and materials? • Are there well presented displays of pupils’ work throughout the school? • Are the pupils active and happy?
ADMISSION TO EARLY EDUCATION
The Authority’s admission criteria, which was agreed with the Early Years and Extended Schools Partnership applies to free nursery education places for three and four year olds.
The Early Years and Extended Schools Partnership and CYC agreed the following guidelines on admissions criteria for three and four year olds taking up a free nursery/early education place in the City.
NURSERY/EARLY EDUCATION ADMISSIONS GUIDELINES
There are free nursery/early education places for all three and four year olds whose parents want one. Children may take up a free place: • at a nursery class attached to a local school or at St Paul’s Nursery School • at their local pre-school playgroup • at a private day nursery or independent nursery school • with a childminder who is part of a registered network • with the Portage Service (offering home visits for children with special educational needs aged 0 – 5 years) All the above are called ‘providers’.
• Normally children will be admitted in age order, so that the oldest children are admitted ﬁrst.
• BUT children with identiﬁed special needs, or in social need, may be offered a nursery place before an older child who doesn’t have these needs. • Three year olds should be admitted in line with eligibility dates established by the Department for Education and Skills: • Children who have their third birthday between 1 September and 31 December should be admitted from the beginning of the Spring Term. • Children who have their third birthday between 1 January and 31 March should be admitted from the beginning of the Summer Term. • Children who have their third birthday between 1 April and 31 August should be admitted from the beginning of the Autumn Term.
• Children should be admitted from anywhere within the City of York Council area.This allows parents to use nursery/early years provision that is most convenient for the family, near their work or close to their childcare provider.
• Free nursery/early education places are parttime, for a minimum of 21⁄2 hours a day, for a maximum of ﬁve sessions for 38 weeks of the year. In addition, under the Pathﬁnder Award for the ‘New ﬂexible entitlement for 3 and 5 year olds 2006/2008’ and subject to consultation, parents may be able to access 15 hours of early education over 38 weeks. Early years and child care providers are being supported to increase entitlement up to 6 sessions (15 hours) of 21⁄2 hours of early education from April 2007. Some children with special educational needs may require a different pattern of attendance. • Children living within the City of York boundary, or within the normal area for City of York schools, have a higher priority for a place than children living outside the City boundary.
City of York Council only funds nursery/early education places within the City.This policy is aimed at supporting York providers so that a range and choice of provision in the City is sustained. A fact sheet on nursery/early education places for three and four year olds is available from the Children’s Information Service on (01904) 554628.
THE ADMISSIONS POLICY
The admissions policy to full time school was introduced in September 2003.
The guidelines are based on equal opportunity principles, so that children will be admitted according to fair, open and clear criteria. People who provide free nursery/early education do not have to follow these guidelines, but they should have a way of admitting children that is fair for all children who apply for places. Parents can ask to see admissions policies which set down how providers make their decisions.
• Children with additional needs or ‘Hard to Reach Children’ qualify for additional sessions (maximum of 5. 6 under Pathﬁnder) if they are not already accessing the full entitlement.
• Children living outside the City of York boundary who have attended a York pre-school provider for three terms before their third birthday will also be given prior consideration for a nursery/early education place.
The policy means that children start full time education in the school year they turn ﬁve.There are two formal points of full time entry to school. These are dependent on the child’s birth date.This means that:
‘A Shared Foundation for Children’ presented an ideal opportunity for York to rethink how to provide the best early years education and childcare for three to ﬁve year olds before they start formal education.
The admissions policy is part of ‘A Shared Foundation for Children’ and combines education and care for children aged three to ﬁve years old in York.
• Children born between 1 September and 31 December can be admitted full time to school in September in the school year that they turn ﬁve. • Children born between 1 January and 31 August can be admitted full time to school in January in the school year they turn ﬁve.
Schools and other local providers work in their Shared Foundation Community Partnership to offer early education and wraparound care and subject to consultation extended services to suit each child. Each local partnership may include pre-school playgroups, day nurseries, childminders, toddler groups and other out-of-school care. Every three to ﬁve year old in a part time place is entitled to 5 sessions (*Pathﬁnder 6 sessions) made up of 21⁄2 hours of free early education per week, which is based currently on the Foundation Stage Curriculum.There may also be the opportunity to access additional wraparound care between the hours of 8am to 6pm. Children who are accessing full time education will be receiving the equivalent to 10 sessions based on the Foundation Stage Curriculum. Wraparound care is the term used to describe seamless care, education and play for young children. Morning or afternoon sessions are added to the early education sessions to provide a whole day of education and care.
The policy includes an option of ‘Deferred Entry’. All schools follow the council’s formal policy of Deferred Entry.This means that parents may secure a place at a school under the normal admission arrangements but choose to postpone their child’s admission to the school until the term after a child turns ﬁve. It is a legal requirement that all children must enter formal full time education the term after their ﬁfth birthday. Adoption of this policy is recommended to the governing bodies of voluntary aided schools.
Wraparound Care includes the following: • Breakfast clubs • Lunch clubs • Before/after early education sessions • After school clubs/homework clubs • Holiday play schemes • Childminders
The education aspect would be offered by the school, or by a pre-school playgroup, private nursery or childminder, registered for early years education, on or off a school site.
The wraparound care aspect would be provided by a pre-school playgroup, private nursery, childminder or informal carer. Again this could be provided on the school site or it may be that the childcare aspect is offered by a number of providers in the locality. If you would like more information please contact the Children’s Information Service on (01904) 554628.

ADMISSIONS TO YORK PRIMARY SCHOOLS
The City of York policy for allocating primary school places is designed to be as fair as possible while ensuring that resources are used sensibly. A revised policy was introduced from September 2003.The policy means that children will start full time education in the school year they turn ﬁve. There will be two formal points of full time entry to school.These are dependent upon the child’s birth date.This means that:
HOW DO I APPLY FOR MY CHILD TO START PRIMARY SCHOOL?
You will need to complete a common application form which allows you to indicate up to three primary schools you would wish your child to attend. The common application form can be obtained from either the primary school that you would prefer your child to attend or from the nursery/playgroup that your child currently attends.
• Children born between 1 January and 31 August can be admitted full time to school in January in the school year they turn ﬁve. We will make arrangements so you can express your preference. Although most parents will seek a place for their child at the nearest or local school, they can nevertheless express a preference for a place at any other primary school
• Children born between 1 September and 31 December can be admitted full time to school in September in the school year that they turn ﬁve.
Alternatively, you can apply online at www.admissions.york.gov.uk or by visiting our website at www.york.gov.uk and following the links. Your application will be treated in exactly the same way as a paper application with the added beneﬁt of receiving an email conﬁrming receipt of your application and the ability to track progress online.
We would advise you to contact the school of your ﬁrst preference to enquire about entry arrangements and also to visit your local school and any other schools which you are considering, to ﬁnd the best available setting for your child. The large majority of parents in York prefer their children to attend their local catchment area primary school. Our policy encourages ‘ Local schools for Local children’.
HOW DO I FIND OUT ABOUT PRIMARY SCHOOLS IN YORK?
Schools which have a nursery class have a large ‘N’ under the admission number column. Every school publishes a prospectus; you can get a copy directly from the school.
In Section I of this guide you will ﬁnd a complete list of primary schools in the Authority with their addresses, telephone numbers and the names of the headteachers.You can ﬁnd out where they are by referring to the City of York map in this guide.
PUPILS WITH STATEMENTS OF SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS (SEN)
Where children have a statement of SEN, parental preference for either a mainstream or special school place is considered and agreed as part of the statutory assessment or annual review process. Please note that there is a different admission and appeals process for children with statements. Further details are available from the SEN coordination service on (01904) 554319.
WHAT HAPPENS IF A SCHOOL IS OVERSUBSCRIBED?
Any school’s resources, such as teachers and classrooms, have to be used carefully to ensure the best possible standards of education and a safe environment. If no limit is set on the numbers of children that can go to a school each year these standards could not be maintained.
You need to ensure that your completed common application form has been returned to the school of your ﬁrst preference by Friday, 16 February 2007.The form will give you a chance to express a preference and your reasons. If you choose to apply online this must also be submitted by the Friday, 16 February 2007.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO NEXT?
Only a small number of primary schools will be oversubscribed because the number of applications exceeds the admission limit set for the school. In these cases a decision has to be made as to which children should have priority for the places available. If that is the case, priority is given as follows: First priority: Pupils looked after by the authority – This applies to all pupils living in the City of York area who are in the care of the local authority or are provided with accommodation by the authority (see section 22 of the Children Act 1989); Second priority: Pupils who live within the catchment area normally served by the school – The catchment areas are designated by the City of York LA and are made available to parents from the Education Access Team;
Parents will be informed by the school where their child has been allocated a place by Friday, 30 March 2007. If the school is oversubscribed you may be informed by the Education Access Team rather than the school.
WHEN WILL I KNOW WHICH SCHOOL MY CHILD WILL ATTEND?
Third priority: Pupils considered by the LA to have exceptional social or medical needs which relate to the preferred school – The LA may consult with other medical/educational professionals for a further opinion as to whether a pupil should be allocated a place to an individual school due to a particular medical condition or social need;
Fifth priority: Pupils who live closest to the school using the nearest available safe walking route – The LA is constantly reviewing the nearest available safe walking routes, working closely with the Road Safety Team. If a place is to be allocated to a pupil and there is more than one pupil from the same oversubscription criterion, a place would be offered to the pupil who also fulﬁls the next highest criterion, eg catchment and sibling; catchment and shortest distance to school.
Fourth priority: Pupils with siblings at the school in September 2007 – Siblings are deﬁned as brothers or sisters living in the same house, as their primary place of residence, including half- and stepbrothers or sisters;
WHAT IS THE ADMISSIONS POLICY FOR VOLUNTARY AIDED SCHOOLS?
The policy and priority for admission to a voluntary aided school is determined by the governors of the school. Enquiries about admissions to these schools should be addressed to the headteacher concerned.The list in Section I of this book shows which schools are voluntary aided. Voluntary aided schools have their own appeals procedures. For further details you will need to contact the school concerned.
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY CHILD IS NOT ALLOCATED A PLACE AT THE SCHOOL OF MY FIRST PREFERENCE?
Most primary schools in York are able to accommodate all of the pupils seeking a place. However, from time to time some children will not be allocated the school of their parents’ preference. In this case you have the right to appeal against the allocation of a school place. Please refer to Section F for further information on the appeals process.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS FOR SCHOOL ADMISSIONS FOR CHILDREN LIVING OUTSIDE THE CITY OF YORK AREA?
If you live outside the City of York boundary but wish your child to be admitted to a City of York primary school, you should contact the Education Access Team for a common application form. Alternatively, you can apply online at www.admissions.york.gov.uk. If the school is voluntary aided you should write directly to that school.
INFANT CLASS SIZES:WHAT DOES THE LIMIT ON CLASS SIZES MEAN FOR MY CHILD?
Legislation introduced in September 2001, prevents class sizes for Key Stage 1 (infants) from exceeding 30 pupils.The Authority will, therefore, need to take this into account when allocating places in reception, year 1 and year 2. We will, therefore, not allocate any pupils to a year group which would mean that a class would be greater than 30.
WHAT ABOUT YORK CHILDREN GOING TO SCHOOLS OUTSIDE THE CITY OF YORK AREA?
If you would like a place at a primary school outside the City of York area you can apply directly to the relevant authority. Should you need any help or advice, please contact the City of York Education Access Team.
You can appeal if your child has not been allocated a place due to the infant class size legislation. Please see Section F of this guide for further information.
DOES THE LA HAVE WAITING LISTS FOR SCHOOLS?
If a school is oversubscribed, a waiting list will be held from when the allocations have been made until 30 September 2007.Your position on this list will be determined by the criteria set out previously. If a pupil does not take up an offer of a place at an oversubscribed school, this place will be offered to the next person on the waiting list. If you appeal for a place at a school, it does not affect your child’s place on the waiting list.
The LA is determined to prevent fraudulent applications for school places. Parents must therefore, only use one address when completing the common application form.This MUST be the address at which the parent and child are ordinarily resident. Where there is an issue with joint residence each case is assessed on an individual basis because of the inﬁnite nature of individual circumstances.The Education Access Team will check addresses against other records held by the City of York Council, such as the electoral register, in accordance with the authority’s Data Protection Registration.The LA will place the responsibility on the parent/carer to prove they are ordinarily resident at the address, but may request additional information in certain circumstances.The LA will withdraw the offer of a school place if an application is found to be fraudulent.
MOVING TO YORK AND WANTING A PLACE AT A PRIMARY SCHOOL
It does not matter what time of year you move to York, we will work with you to ﬁnd your child an appropriate primary school. Most primary schools will normally have places available, although in some cases the school of your preference may already be full. All York primary schools, with the exception of the voluntary aided church schools, have their own catchment areas.This means that if it is your preference, your child would normally be allocated a place in the school in whose catchment area you will reside.This, however, is not always possible because some schools may have reached their admission limit. Allocating any additional pupils to the school would, therefore, begin to prejudice the education of other pupils already within the school. The other reason for a place being refused is that legislation states that no infant class can have more than 30 pupils. For these reasons we may not be able to allocate your child a place at their catchment area school. In the large majority of cases however, we can allocate a place for your child at their catchment area school.
We can advise you which is your catchment area school, which schools have places available, which schools are church schools, and your right of appeal if your chosen school has already reached its admission limit. Information on appeals can be found in Section F of this guide.
ADMISSIONS TO YORK SECONDARY SCHOOLS
The City of York policy for allocating secondary school places is designed to be as fair as possible while ensuring that resources are used sensibly.
SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN YORK
A New School resulting from the closure of Oaklands and Lowﬁeld will open on 1 September 2007. Initially year 7 pupils will be based on the Lowﬁeld site, but will move into the new school building in late 2008 which will be on the Oaklands Site.The New School will open with a team of staff who will move with pupils onto the new site. If you live in the City of York Council area, your child would normally go to one of the secondary schools listed in Section I of this guide.They are all co-educational and therefore, admit boys and girls.
The vast majority of parents in York get a place for their child at the school they want, although this is not possible in every case. Parents can only be assured of a secondary school place if they receive an offer from the Local Authority.The only exceptions to this rule are All Saints’ Roman Catholic School, Archbishop Holgate’s Church of England School and Manor Church of England School, as these are voluntary aided schools where the admissions are determined by the governing bodies. If you are applying for a place at any of these three schools you still need to complete a common application form as well as an application form for the individual school. It is important to note that Headteachers cannot offer places to parents.
A revised secondary school admission policy was introduced for September 2001. Under the secondary schools admission arrangements the allocation of places is based on where the child lives and the preferences of parents.The attendance at a particular primary school does not give any guarantee of a place at a particular secondary school.The secondary school admission policy is not based on feeder primary schools.
Parents can apply for their child to attend any secondary school. We will make arrangements so you can express a preference for your child to attend a particular school. All parents/carers MUST complete a common application form for their child.This form gives you the opportunity to state up to ﬁve secondary schools you would prefer your child to attend.
They are also all comprehensive schools and do not have admission arrangements that depend on a pupil’s ability or an entrance exam. These four schools offer post-16 education: • All Saints’ Roman Catholic School • Fulford School • Huntington School • Joseph Rowntree School
The following six schools have developed close links with York College.The College provides a wide range of post 16 education which is accessed by a large number of pupils leaving these schools: • Archbishop Holgate’s Church of England School • Burnholme Community College • Canon Lee School • Manor Church of England School • Millthorpe School • York High (new school)
HOW DO I APPLY FOR A PLACE AT A CITY OF YORK SECONDARY SCHOOL?
Each of the following schools serve their own geographical area: • Archbishop Holgate’s Church of England School* • Burnholme Community College • Canon Lee School • Fulford School • Huntington School • Joseph Rowntree School • Millthorpe School • York High (new school)
Catchment area maps of each of the above schools are available for you to look at by visiting the Education Access Team at Mill House, North Street,York. * Archbishop Holgate’s School became a voluntary aided school from September 2004. It’s admissions policy is included in this Guide. The school will continue to serve it’s own geographical area.
FOR CHILDREN TRANSFERRING FROM PRIMARY TO SECONDARY SCHOOL
WHEN DO I APPLY?
You will be sent a common application form in October 2006 asking you to tell us your ﬁve preferences and the reasons for them.This is an important form and your child’s place may be in jeopardy if you do not return it to us before 15 November 2006. Expressing a preference and the reasons for that preference are legal rights; Please complete the form fully and carefully.You should name up to ﬁve schools for which you wish your child to be considered for a place including any voluntary aided schools or schools which are outside the City of York area. Please add any information on an extra sheet if you feel it is appropriate. Further details are provided in the letter you will have received with this guide.
Please note that there is a different admission and appeals process for children with statements. Further details are available from the SEN co-ordination service on (01904) 554319.
Alternatively, you can apply online at www.admissions.york.gov.uk or by visiting our website at www.york.gov.uk and following the links. Your application will be treated in exactly the same way as a paper application with the added beneﬁt of receiving an email conﬁrming receipt of your application and the ability to track progress online.
You must return your form to us or submit an online application by 15 November 2006. Sorting through all the applications and working out who will be able to go to which school is a task that requires time and care. We work to a timescale to ensure that parents, children and schools have plenty of time to plan, and any problems that may arise can be sorted out. If you do not return your form by this date your application may be dealt with after all the other applications that were received on or before 15 November 2006.This means you will stand less chance of getting your preferred school.
WHEN DO I RETURN MY COMMON APPLICATION FORM?
All preferences are treated as equal initially and are seen by all admission authorities whose schools have been indicated as a preference. If more than one school place could potentially be offered, the single offer will be made for the school that the parent/carer ranked highest.
WHEN WILL I BE INFORMED WHICH SCHOOL HAS BEEN ALLOCATED FOR MY CHILD?
We will write to you on 1 March 2007 informing you of your child’s allocated place.
PUPILS WITH STATEMENT OF SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS (SEN)
WHAT HAPPENS IF A SCHOOL IS OVERSUBSCRIBED?
Where children have a statement of SEN, parental preference for either a mainstream or special school place is considered and agreed as part of the statutory assessment or annual review process.
Any school’s resources, such as teachers and classrooms, have to be used carefully to ensure the best possible standards for education and a safe environment. If no limit were set on the number of
Because of the number of pupils transferring to secondary education, it is inevitable that some schools will be oversubscribed. If that is the case, priority is given to certain categories of pupil. What we take into account when allocating places at oversubscribed schools is where the child’s home address is, the child’s medical or social needs and whether they have a brother or sister attending the school. Our policy encourages ‘Local schools for local children’ and as such priority is given to pupils who live within the catchment area of the school. In summary, places are allocated: First priority: Pupils looked after by the authority – This applies to all pupils living in the City of York area who are in the care of the local authority or are provided with accommodation by the authority (see section 22 of the Children Act 1989); Second priority: Pupils who live within the catchment area normally served by the school – The catchment areas are designated by the City of York LA and are made available to parents via the annual Guide for Parents, secondary school open nights or from the Education Access Team;
children that can go to a school each year these standards could not be maintained.
primary place of residence, including half- and stepbrothers or sisters;
Fifth priority: Pupils who live closest to the school using the nearest available safe walking route – The LA is constantly reviewing the nearest available safe walking routes, working closely with the Road Safety Team. If a place is to be allocated to a pupil and there is more than one pupil from the same oversubscription criterion, a place would be offered to the pupil who fulﬁls a place in the next higher criterion.
Third priority: Pupils considered by the LA to have exceptional social or medical needs which relate to the preferred school – The LA may consult with other medical/educational professionals for a further opinion as to whether a pupil should be allocated a place to an individual school due to a particular medical condition or social need; Fourth priority: Pupils with siblings at the school in September 2007 – Siblings are deﬁned as brothers or sisters living in the same house, as their
The following primary schools are outside City of York Council’s area but most of the children who attend them still live in the area normally served by at least one of York’s secondary schools.

WHAT IF MY CHILD ATTENDS A PRIMARY SCHOOL OUTSIDE THE CITY OF YORK?
If a pupil is in the position of potentially being offered a place at more than one school, the single offer will be made for the school the parent/carer ranked the highest.
WHAT IF MY CHILD LIVES OUTSIDE THE CITY OF YORK AREA?
If you live outside the area but would like your child to go to a City of York school, you should complete the common application form given to you by your ‘home’ LA.The ‘home’ LA will contact the City of York and provide appropriate details to enable a decision to be made in accordance with the policy.The deadline for your ‘home’ LA may differ from the City of York.
We currently provide free transport to Tadcaster Grammar School for children from these three areas who start in September.
Applications will be considered using the same criteria as applications from City of York parents who wish their child to attend a school which is not normally the school for their area.
WHAT IF I WANT MY CHILD TO ATTEND A SECONDARY SCHOOL OUTSIDE THE CITY OF YORK?
You still need to apply to the City of York either by completing a common application form or applying online at www.admissions.york.gov.uk. We will then contact the relevant LA for that particular school to advise them on your preference and provide them with the appropriate details. If your child lives in the area served by one of the following primary schools, they fall into the catchment areas for the City of York schools shown and Tadcaster Grammar School. St. Mary’s CE Primary, Askham Richard – York High (new school)
For a child to be considered for early entry to a later phase of education there must be very signiﬁcant educational and social reasons.The recommendation for a child to miss a year of schooling would normally come from the child’s school but may be initiated by the parent/carer of the child. A request for early entry to secondary school must be made in writing to the Education Access Team before the 15 November 2006 when the child is in Year 5.The request would be expected to have been the outcome of ongoing dialogue between the school and the parent/carers. Further details are available on request from the Education Access Team or the child’s school.
CAN MY CHILD TRANSFER TO SECONDARY SCHOOL EARLY?
DOES THE LA HAVE WAITING LISTS FOR SCHOOLS?
Archbishop of York CE Junior, Bishopthorpe – Fulford or Millthorpe schools Copmanthorpe Primary – Millthorpe School
If a school is oversubscribed, a waiting list will be held from when the allocations have been made in March 2007 until 30 September 2007.Your child’s position on this list will be determined by the criteria set out previously and will be based on preferences indicated on the common application form. If you want your child to be added to a waiting list of a school that you haven’t applied for after the 1 March 2007, they will be added to the bottom of the waiting list. Priority is given to those pupils whose parents have already indicated a preference for that school.You are advised, therefore, to use all your ﬁve preferences. Children
who move into the York area after 1 March 2007 and whose parents have not previously applied for a York school, will be added to waiting lists in accordance with the oversubscription criteria. If a pupil does not take up an offer of a place at an oversubscribed school, this place will be offered to the next person on the list. If you appeal for a place at a school, it does not affect your child’s place on the waiting list.
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY CHILD IS NOT ALLOCATED THE SCHOOL OF MY PREFERENCE?
You have the right to appeal against the allocation of a school place. Please refer to Section F for further information on the appeals process.
The LA is determined to prevent fraudulent applications for school places. Parents must therefore, only use one address when completing the common application form.This MUST be the address at which the parent and child are ordinarily resident. Where there is an issue with joint residence each case is assessed on an individual basis because of the inﬁnite nature of individual circumstances.The Education Access Team will check addresses against other records held by the City of York Council, in accordance with the authority’s Data Protection Registration.The LA will place the responsibility on the parent/carer to prove they are ordinarily resident at the address, but may request additional information in certain circumstances.The LA will withdraw the offer of a school place if an application is found to be fraudulent.

MOVING TO YORK AND WANTING A PLACE AT A SECONDARY SCHOOL
Moving into a new area and starting a new school can sometimes be a difﬁcult time for a child. Our aim is to try and make the transfer to a York secondary school as smooth as possible.
All York secondary schools, with the exception of Manor CE and All Saints’ RC have their own catchment area.This means that, if it is your preference, your child would normally be allocated a place at the school in whose catchment area you reside. However, this is not always possible because some schools may have reached their admission limit. Allocating any additional pupils to the school may, therefore, prejudice the education of other pupils already within the school. If that is the view of the LA then we may not allocate a place for your child in their catchment area. In the majority of cases we will try to allocate places in the local catchment school. We will advise you of your catchment area school and also inform you of other secondary schools which will have places available for the year group in which your child will be commencing. If we are unable to allocate your child a place at the school of your preference you do have the right to appeal (Please see Section F of this guide).

WHAT ABOUT APPLYING TO A CHURCH SCHOOL?
If you want your child to have a denominational education, you can apply to one of these schools: • All Saints’ Roman Catholic School • Archbishop Holgate’s Church of England School • Manor Church of England School
ADMISSIONS POLICY FOR ALL SAINTS’ ROMAN CATHOLIC SCHOOL
All Saints’ RC School was founded by the Catholic Church to provide education for children of Catholic families.The school is conducted by its governing body as part of the Catholic Church in accordance with its trust deed and instrument of government, and seeks at all times to be a witness to Jesus Christ.
Whenever there are more applications than places available, priority will always be given to Catholic applicants in accordance with the oversubscription criteria listed below. All applicants are required to declare their positive support for the aims and ethos of the school.
The governing body has responsibility for admissions to this school and will normally admit up to 174 pupils at the age of 11 each year.
At any time where there are more applications for places than the number of places available, places will be offered according to the following order of priority: 1. ‘Looked after’ children from Catholic families. 2. Catholic children attending Catholic primary schools within the York parishes of St Aelred, English Martyrs, St George, St Joseph, Our Lady, St Paulinus and St Wilfrid and the parishes of All Saints’ (Thirsk), St John the Evangelist (Easingwold), St Joseph (Tadcaster), St Leonard and St Mary (Malton), St Margaret Clitheroe (Haxby), St Mary and St Joseph (Pocklington),
3. Other baptised Catholics.
Our Lady and St Benedict (Ampleforth). (This above list is in alphabetical order only.)
4. Other ‘looked after’ children.
5. Children with a statement of Hearing Impairment.
2. Where evidence is provided at the time of application of an exceptional social, medical or pastoral need of the child which can most appropriately be met at this school, this may increase the priority of an application within a category.
7. Children with a brother or sister at the school at the time of enrolment
6. Children attending a Catholic school whose parents are in sympathy with the aims and ethos of the school. A letter of support from the parents must accompany the application.
Application Procedure TWO forms must be completed
3. Where the offer of places to all 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 to the school.
9. Any other applicants. Notes:
8. Christians of other denominations and children of other faiths whose parents are in sympathy with the aims and ethos of the school and whose application is supported by a letter from a minister of religion or other religious leader and the parents.
Form 1 A standard application form from the parents home Local Authority must be completed and returned to the home Local Authority.
Form 2 An All Saints application form should be completed and must be submitted to Ms Bickley at the school. A copy of the child’s Baptismal certiﬁcate should accompany this form together with any relevant supporting letter(s). The closing date for receipt of both forms is 15 November 2006.
Catechumens and members of an Eastern Christian Church are to be given priority next after baptised Catholics in each of the ﬁrst three categories. Where the offer of places to all applicants in any of the categories listed above, would lead to oversubscription within a category, then the following criteria will be used in the order given:
Parents and carers will be advised of the outcome of their application on 1 March. Unsuccessful applicants will be given reasons related to the oversubscription criteria listed above and advised of their right to an independent appeal panel. Parents and carers who move into the area and apply for a place at the school before 31 December 2006, will be included in the allocation. Those parents and carers moving into the area and applying after the 31 December will be added to the waiting list after the offer day.
1. The attendance of a brother or sister at the school at the time of enrolment will increase the priority of an applicant within each category.
Applicants are requested to note that applications will be invalid unless BOTH forms described above have been completed and received at the correct addresses by the due date.
All parents and carers already living in the area but applying after 15 November 2006 will be added to the waiting list after the offer day.
Preferences will be taken into account when applying for a place at the school and priority will be given in each category to parents and carers who choose All Saints RC School as their ﬁrst choice.
No applications will be accepted more than 12 months before the proposed date of entry. Decisions on applications for all entries to the school for September each year, will be made by the Governors’ Admissions Committee usually by the end of February. If the year is not full, applications for immediate places will be accepted after contact with the previous school. If the year is full then the oversubscription criteria and waiting list process will be used.
PUPILS APPLYING TO THE SCHOOL AFTER THE START OF YEAR 7 (USING A BLUE APPLICATION FORM)
The Governors will operate a waiting list for those parents and carers who are not successful in being allocated a place.The waiting list will be ranked according to oversubscription criteria stated in the Admissions Policy.The waiting list will close at the end of September of the year of entry for Year 7 intake. For all other intakes names will remain on the list for 2 months after which time reapplication to remain on the list must be made.
The admission of pupils with a Statement of Special Educational Needs is dealt with by a completely separate procedure.This procedure is integral to the making and maintaining of statements by the pupil’s home Local Authority. Details of this separate procedure are set out in the Special Educational Needs Code of Conduct. Agreed by Governing Body on 20 June 2005.
PUPILS WITH A STATEMENT OF SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS
Notes (these notes form part of the oversubscription criteria) 1. ‘Looked after child’ 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 (eg children with foster parents)
8. Distances will be measured using the Local Authority GIS system from the home front door via the shortest, safest walking route to the school.

3. For the purposes of this admission policy, attendance at a feeder primary school includes those who were prevented from attending a feeder school due to oversubscription of Catholics and whose application to attend was unsuccessful. 4. ‘Catechumen’ means a member of the catechumenate of the Catholic Church. A certiﬁcate of reception into the order of catechumens will normally evidence this.
2. ‘Catholic’ means a member of a Church in communion with the See of Rome.This includes the Eastern Catholic Churches. A certiﬁcate of baptism in a Catholic Church or a certiﬁcate of reception into the full communion of the Catholic Church will normally evidence this.
5. ‘Eastern Christian Church’ includes Orthodox Churches, and is normally evidenced by a certiﬁcate of baptism or reception from the authorities of that Church. 6. ‘Brother and sister’ includes half brothers or sisters.
7. To demonstrate an exceptional social, medical or pastoral need of the child which can be most appropriately met at this school, the governing body will normally require written evidence

APPLYING FOR A PLACE
ARRANGEMENTS AND POLICY FOR ADMISSION OF STUDENTS TO MANOR CE SCHOOL
When points are awarded the following criteria are considered: Category 1 (Foundation Places for children from Christian denominations1)
The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and signiﬁcance of the Christian faith, and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its students.
The school policy is to invite applications for admission from children of families who are practising Christians, or from parents/carers who wish their children to receive an education in accordance with the principles of the Christian faith.
Those wishing to apply for a foundation place should complete Sections 1 and 2. Other applicants should complete Section 2 only. Unsuccessful applicants for foundation places will be considered for the remaining 60 places and the points scored in Section 1 will then be disregarded. Unﬁlled foundation places will be available to other applicants and allocated according to points scored in Section 2 below.
The number of places available for admission to Year 7 is 150. In the event of the number of applicants exceeding the number of places available, the following criteria will be taken into consideration by the Governors and places allocated accordingly. In accordance with the School’s aims to nurture the Christian faith, to welcome children of other faiths and to serve the local community, up to 90 of these places will be foundation places and will be allocated on faith grounds.The remainder will be allocated according to the criteria in Section 2 below.
1. Whether the parents/carers regularly worship at an Anglican Church or other Christian denomination, and for how long the church attendance has been sustained. (up to 10 points) 2.

The minimum time for regular attendance by the parents/carers at worship will be two years prior to the application (November 2006). Parents/carers who have not met the minimum time requirement will not be considered for a foundation place.
All applicants for foundation places will be required to submit a reference from a minister of religion with their application form. Places will be allocated to applicants scoring the highest number of points.
Category 3 (Exceptional medical and social needs) All schools are required by law to give prior consideration to certain individual students with exceptional social or medical needs. Governors will, therefore, give prior consideration to: 1. Students having statements of special educational need which, after discussion with the school name Manor CE School.
Category 2 (Foundation places for children of other major world faiths)
If more than 90 eligible applications are received, the available places will be allocated to applicants scoring the highest number of points. If more than one applicant has the lowest qualifying points score and there are insufﬁcient places, the places for these applicants will be allocated to those who live the longest, safe walking distance from their designated LA school. If less than 90 eligible applications are received, the unﬁlled foundation places will be allocated under Section 2.

If there are more applications than places available, places will be allocated to children who live the shortest safe walking distance from the school. If less than 4 eligible applications are received, the unﬁlled foundation places will be allocated under Section 2.
In all cases the Governors will want written information indicating why Manor CE School is considered to be better equipped to deal with the student’s needs than the LA designated school.

Students considered by the Governors to have other exceptional social or medical needs speciﬁc to Manor CE School – parents/carers applying under this criteria will already have consulted the school about it’s suitability for their child and will need to provide written references from the Director of Social Services / Community Services or a relevant consultant medical practitioner.
Category 4 (Distance) Manor CE School is committed to serving it’s local community and to working in partnership with the LA and it’s neighbouring schools.

Applicants are strongly urged to complete the application form as accurately and fully as possible. Where the Governing Body has made an offer of a place at the school on the basis of a fraudulent or intentionally misleading application from a parent/carer, the offer of a place may be withdrawn.
Preferences will be taken into account when applying for a place at the school and priority will be given in each category to parents/carers who choose Manor CE School as their ﬁrst choice.The preference box on the application must be completed.This must match your preference on the City of York form.

If you decide to proceed with an appeal you will be sent an appeal form for completion, together with information about the appeals procedure.You should set out the reasons for your appeal clearly and return it by the date given to the address indicated on the form. All appeals are considered by an independent appeals panel. Decisions made by the appeals panel are legally binding on both the Local Authority and the governors of the school.The Clerk of the appeals panel writes to parents to inform them of the decision.
Before deciding to appeal you may prefer to speak to staff within the Education Access Team to discuss your options, including your right of appeal.
If you disagree with the school place allocated to your child you can appeal for a place at any alternative school.
Appeals for voluntary aided schools such as Archbishop Holgate’s CE, Manor C.E and All Saints RC are organised by their respective governing bodies. Appeal forms for these schools are obtained direct from the individual schools or from the Education Access Team. Please be aware that you can appeal for a place at any school even if it was not one of your original preferences.
SECTION Most appeals for primary and secondary schools are dealt with in exactly the same way.There are two distinct stages involved in an appeal:First: Second: A balancing stage – parents present their information to the panel.The panel must then exercise its discretion, balancing between the degree of ‘prejudice’ and the weight of parental factors. Parents are only entitled to one appeal for an individual school each year. A re-appeal would only be considered if new evidence became available which could not have been made available at the original appeal hearing. A factual stage – The admissions authority must prove that ‘prejudice’ would arise were an extra child to be admitted to the school.
INFANT CLASS SIZE APPEALS
Where an appeal is for a place in an infant class and that place has not been offered because of the legal limit of 30 pupils per class, the appeals panel will consider: • Whether the decision was not one which a reasonable admission authority would make in the circumstances of the case. • Whether the child would have been offered a place if the admission arrangements had been properly implemented. If the panel is satisﬁed that the above have been met then a place will not be allocated.
PUPILS WITH SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS (APPEALS)
There is a different appeals process for pupils with Statements of Special Educational Needs. Further details are available from the SEN Co-ordination Service on (01904) 554319.
If you want extra information about the appeals process please contact Democracy Support Group on (01904) 552054. The table below indicates the number of appeals received during the academic year 2005/2006 for the reception intake and children transferring from primary to secondary school.

TACKLING BULLYING – MAKING YOUR CHILD’S NEW SCHOOL EVEN SAFER
Bullying is a frightening experience and it can damage a child’s self-esteem and conﬁdence. Our schools are overwhelmingly safe places but for the sake of the small number of children who do get bullied we have to make even greater efforts to tackle bullying behaviour. Over the last three years the City of York Council has worked with the NSPCC to campaign against bullying in our schools. From buddy benches in primary schools, through to theatre in education projects in secondary schools, with leaﬂet campaigns, bus adverts and classroom activities we have supported schools in their actions to safeguard pupils.
The work we have undertaken has produced results.The number of children reporting themselves as being regularly bullied has fallen quite signiﬁcantly over the last year. Amongst boys in particular, there has been a real fall in the incidents of bullying. We are delighted by this. For us it shows that if you do something about a problem you can make it better. For your children this means that if they get bullied they must tell someone – that is how it can be stopped. For parents it means take your child’s worries up with the school – the school will take the report seriously. For schools it means that they can determine their own ethos – school action can reduce bullying behaviours Applying for admission to a school for your child is a big thing.You need to know that which ever school they go to that they will be safe when they are there and, that if things do go wrong, that school staff will deal with the issue quickly and for the beneﬁt of your child.
HOW TO SPOT THE WARNING SIGNS THAT YOUR CHILD MAY BE BULLIED
Children may truant from school, develop some learning or behavioural difﬁculties or come home with unexplained injuries.You may notice unexpected changes in behaviour or eating habits. You know your own child best and so will be sensitive to the sorts of warning signs that might mean your child is getting bullied. Our message is that if you do think something is going wrong, talk to your child and talk to the teachers. We have shown that bullying can be tackled.
