Admission authorities (individual academies) must consult on their admission arrangements at least once every seven years, even if the arrangements have not changed during that time.

The consultation on an amendment to the admissions policy at Harris Primary Academy Peckham Park, reducing the intake number from 60 to 30 places, produced no feedback or challenges. Governors considered the factors, (Reduced roll) behind the decision to change the admissions and then agreed at the FGB on 28th January 2020 to amend the admissions policy as proposed. This statement notifies all stakeholders that the changes to reduce the admissions intake for 2021-22 at Harris Primary Academy Peckham Park from 60 to 30 places.

Procedures where The Academy is oversubscribed

The Academy will consider all applications for places. Where fewer than 60 applications are received, the Academy will offer places to all those who have applied.

Where the number of applications for admission is greater than the published admissions number, applications will be considered against the criteria set out below. After the admission of pupils with statements of Special Educational Needs where the Academy is named on the statement, the criteria will be applied in the order in which they are set out below:

a) Children in public care (Looked After Children) and children who were looked after but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a residence order or special guardianship order).

b) Children who will have brothers or sisters attending the Academy at their time of entry (brothers and sisters includes half-brothers and sisters and step-brothers and sisters who share the same home. It also includes adopted and foster brothers and sisters sharing the same home);

c) Nearness to the Academy, as calculated by straight line distance from the main gate. This is measured by using a computerised GIS and a centre point supplied by the Ordnance Survey determines the start point of the measurement from the home address. Where the child lives in a block of flats with a communal entrance the centre point used is the central point of the block of flats and not the individual flat. If children are tied for the final place(s) to be allocated, the lower door number will be given priority.

Our full admissions policy can be found at the bottom of the page.
