Consultation: Admissions Arrangements for 2024/25 for Hammond Junior School
We are consulting on our Admissions Arrangements for 2024/25. This consultation commenced on Wednesday 30th November 2022 and will close at 5pm on Wednesday 25th January 2023. To take part in the consultation, please send your comments Mrs Alice Fadden, admissions officer, using the following email address: email@example.com
Our Admissions Arrangements for 2024/25 are available here in full. Anyone wishing to participate in the consultation is encouraged to read these in detail.
The key changes to our admissions arrangements are as follows:
Changes to the Pupil Admission Number (To reflect the falling number on roll that has arisen from the changing demographics in the area surrounding the school.)
The removal of Valley End Church of England Infant School and Windlesham Village Infant School as linked schools to Hammond Junior School (To ensure those who live nearest to the school have priority of admission and to recognise the effect of the reduction of PAN from 90 to 60.)
This consultation is taking place in accordance with the requirements as set out in the School Admissions Code. The consultation must take place for six weeks and it is good practice that this six-week period excludes school holidays.
The GLF Trust Board is the Admissions Authority for our School. It will review all responses to the consultation prior to agreeing the final Admissions Arrangements for 2024/25. These will be published on our website no later than Wednesday 15 March 2023, in line with the statutory requirement.
Your Child’s Position on the Waiting List
Your child's position on a waiting list can go down as well as up. This will occur if other children are added to the list because they have greater priority against the school's admission criteria.
To find out the position of your child on the Waiting List. You can call Surrey County Council on 0300 200 1004.
Hammond Junior School will continue to use the centrally managed applications run by Surrey County Council for all in-year admissions. Follow this link for instructions on how to apply to schools during the academic year.
