Heighington CE Primary School - New parents meeting 12th October, 10am
Admission to Primary School – Academic Year 2018/19
Children born between 01/09/2013 - 31/08/2014
Our information shows that your child is due to be admitted to school in September 2018. Darlington Education Authority has one intake and all children will start school in September 2018.
You are able to obtain a Primary School Guide for Parents which includes an application form directly from your nursery setting, Darlington Borough Council Admissions Department (based at the Town Hall, Darlington) or download a pdf version from www.darlington.gov.uk/Admissions, you are also able to apply on-line. The closing date for application this year is Friday 15th January 2018.
You will be contacted again by Darlington Borough Council on 16th April 2018 to inform you if your application has been successful.
We receive many requests from parents to visit the school prior to completing their application for their child’s admission. Regrettably, it is not always possible to accommodate all the requests; which is unsatisfactory for parents and ourselves.
To overcome this problem we would like to invite any parent who wishes to visit our school to an Open Session on Thursday 12th October at 10.00am. This is of course a normal school day and we need to minimise the disruption for the children. To meet this requirement, the session will take the following agenda:
Brief outline of school numbers/staffing etc
Explanation of Church status
The essence of the school
Admissions criteria and procedure
Questions and answers
Tour of Reception room and outside of building
The session will be of interest to parents new to the school but parents with children already in school will be aware of most of the issues that will be explained. If you wish to attend, you will be very welcome. Unfortunately, parking in the school grounds is unavailable, so I would ask you to park in the car park opposite school.
Attendance or non-attendance, will not influence allocation of places; this is conducted according to Darlington Borough Council Admissions Policy.
Our website is expanding and contains a great deal of information about the curriculum, the current school brochure, OfSTED reports, links to other sites and recent school events. Our website address is http://www.brandh.darlington.sch.uk
