Parents of children who have not been offered a place at the school may ask for their child’s name to be placed on a waiting list. A waiting list will be maintained by the LA until 31st August and subsequently by the school until 31st January. A child’s place on the waiting list will be determined in accordance with the oversubscription criteria above. Placing a child’s name on the waiting list does not guarantee that a place will become available. This does not prevent parents from exercising their right to appeal against the decision not to offer a place. Names are normally removed from the list after 6 months.
