Propsective parents/carers are warmly invited to visit Branston Junior Academy....there's always something exciting going on that you will see!
Our pupil admission limit for each main school Year Group, is 45. The Local Authority manage admissions to schools throughout the County and parents must acquire and return application forms to them. Forms are available from the Local Authority by calling 01522 782 030 or visiting: http://www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/parents/schools/school-admissions/find-a-school-place/midyear-admissions/how-to-apply-for-a-midyear-school-place/103701.article
Parents and legal guardians are invited to indicate their preference of school and are notified at which school their children have been allocated places in the Spring, prior to them starting in September. Places will be allocated in March each year, according to the current Local Authority admissions criteria, (see the LA booklet “Going to School in Lincolnshire”)
When agreeing which pupils can be accepted at Branston Junior Academy, the following criteria will be taken into account:
- A brother or sister is already going to the school at the time a place is needed
- Children in Public Care (A child in Public Care, sometimes referred to as 'Looked After'; is a child who is in the care of a local authority or provided with accomodation by them, in accordance with Section 22 of the Children's Act 1989, at the time of the application. This definition includes children who were previously looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted, or became subject to a residence order or a special guardianship order.)
- Whether this is the closest school to the home address measured by the driving distance from home to school (The distance is measured electronically by the local authority from the post office address point of the home to the post office address point of the school).
We also meet our legal obligations, for example, to children with statements of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
