Burlington Junior School – Admissions
Children who gain a place at the school will be admitted into the National Curriculum Year relevant to their age. Children with statements of special educational needs are always welcomed and arrangements for their requirements will be dealt with in accordance with the Code of Practice on Special Educational Needs.
The allocation of places at Burlington Junior School is decided by the local authority and all applications should be made to them by telephoning the East Riding of Yorkshire Council on 01482 887700 and asking for School Admissions. Prior to making an application parents/carers are very welcome to have a look around the school during the school day. This can be arranged by making an appointment with the school office staff.
The local authority has a coordinated scheme with set criterion for allocating places if the number applying exceeds this number.
Criterion (i) – Places will first be given to children who are looked after by the local authority.
Criterion (ii) – Places will next be given to children who live in the school’s designated catchment area.
Criterion (iii) – Places will next be given to children who have a sibling attending the school in Reception or Years 1 to 5.
Criterion (iv) – Places will next be given to those children who live closest to the school. The distance from the child’s home to the school will be measured and priority will be given to those living nearest to the school.
A waiting list is maintained by the local authority with children prioritised according to the criteria set out above. They also administer the appeal arrangements which are heard by independent admission appeal panels.
For further details of the local authority procedures please contact 01482 887700 and ask for schools admissions.
