Year 3 Applications

The Academy has an admission number of 90 in Year 3 for September 2021.

Applications for places in Year 3 should be made on the home Local Authority’s Common Application Form available here. These are accessible on the LA’s website and should be submitted in accordance with the LA’s published deadlines for applications (normally early to mid-January before the academic year in which the child is eligible for entry)

 

Any parent who wishes their child to transfer to a Junior school in September 2021 must apply before 15 January 2021. An application must be completed even if a child is at an attached Infants' school.

You can start your online application from 1st September 2020 and have until 15 January 2021 to apply. Offer day will be 16 April 2021.


In-Year Applications

If you are looking for a place at Harris Junior Academy Carshalton because you have recently moved into the area, or your child is at another school and you feel that a change of school would benefit their education and/or general well-being, you are entitled to apply for a school place. 

For an In Year application, you can download the application form from Sutton School Admissions Team's website:

www.sutton.gov.uk/admissions


For Parents/Carers who Wish to Appeal

Parent(s) wishing to appeal against the Academy’s decision on admissions, for any year group, should contact the school to discuss the matter. Further information will be given at this point.


Timeline of Appeal Process

September 2021 entry

Appeals resulting from applications which are turned down for admission in September 2019 will be heard according to the following timetable:

Allocation letters sent out     

Appeals lodged by      

Appeals will be heard in two stages between

16th April 2021

5pm on 10th May 2021

 June -  July 2021

Appeals lodged after these dates will be heard within 40 school days of the appeal deadline or 30 school days of being lodged, whichever is the later date.

Applicants will be sent notification of their appeal hearing at least 10 clear school days in advance of the hearing.

Applicants will be sent a copy of the school's case at least seven clear working days in advance of the hearing.

The Appeal Hearing

The Academy will arrange for an Independent Appeals Panel to consider the Academy's reasons for refusal and your reasons for wanting to attend the Academy.  

The Panel will consist of 3 people (2 will have education experience and one will be an independent person with no education experience).

The Panel will consider the case put forward by you and the Academy. They must consider the admission arrangements for the Academy and the reasons why you want to attend that particular school.  The Panel must exercise its discretion by balancing the weight of your argument (for wanting to attend) against the Academy’s reasons for refusal i.e. the prejudice that one more student would cause to the education of the students already offered and the Health and Safety of all the students already attending the Academy, also taking into account the Academy's published admission arrangements.  

The decision of the Independent Appeals Panel is binding on the admissions authority and the Parents.
