WCC Leaflet on Applying for a Secondary School Place before 31 October 2017

APPLICATIONS AND APPEALS

 Applications for The Coleshill School are administered by the Warwickshire Admissions Service:

www.warwickshire.gov.uk/admissions  

Please visit the above website for full details about admissions and appeals.

Warwickshire schools admission arrangement policies can be found on their website: http://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/admissionpolicies  

All admissions to the school must be made through a child’s home Local Authority and therefore this could be Warwickshire, Solihull or Birmingham, depending upon where a child lives.

The Process

Apply either online or by paper form with your own Local Authority.  Remember, as Coleshill is a Warwickshire School, if you reside in Solihull or Birmingham Local Authority areas you apply to these Authorities, observing their deadlines using their forms or on-line website.

New places made available in Year 7

Due to exceptionally high levels of demand we have increased our PAN (planned admission number) to 210 for the Year 7 in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.  All other year groups remain 180.

We positively welcome applications from other Local Authorities.  We are happy to meet with prospective parents to show them around the school and answer any queries.  Please contact Mrs Barnes as above.

In Year Admissions

The decision to move a student's school once they have started their secondary school is never one taken lightly by parents.  Moving house or catchment areas or other more personal reasons can trigger an enquiry for a school place.  The school has a planned admission number for each year group that it cannot exceed without referring a parent to the admissions appeals system.  However, places do become available within year groups and parents are welcome to contact the school to see if a space exists. 

How do i apply for a school place if my child has an Education, Health and Care Plan or a Statement for SEND?

The Coleshill School prides itself in being inclusive and will endeavour to support every student. We would love you to consider our school and we aim to meet the needs of all the students in our care.We are committed to meeting the needs of all, including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.We would ask parents to discuss the identified needs with the school prior to starting so that appropriate intervention and support can be planned. Advice from the LA or other agencies may be requested to ensure that the school can meet any needs appropriately

Children and young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan (or Statement of Special Education Needs) follow a different admission and transfer process for a new school.   You continue to have a right to request a particular school and this will be considered alongside the information that we have about your child’s special educational needs.  The information would have been provided as part of the Education, Health and Care assessment or following the review meeting.

As a school we aim to do the very best in order to make all children feel welcomed and included during transition.  If you would like to discuss SEND requirements in detail please Contact the SENCO: Gina Bye who will be able to advise you further.  Please go to the SEND information page for more information: https://www.thecoleshillschool.org/parents/send-information 

How do we support SEND students in care?

There are exceptions for admissions when considering students who are looked after and are under the care of the Local Authority. 

For any enquiries relating to a place at the school in any year group please contact the Data Team as above.

Planned Admission Number (PAN) is 210 (Year 7 - September 2015, 2016, 2017 & 2018)
