3 A glossary of terms used in this guide The information contained in this guide relates to the admission of children to reception classes for the 2015/16 academic year. It also applies to children who will transfer from infant school to junior school in September Nursery schools generally cater for children between the ages of three and four. Within the primary phase of education, there are three types of school: Infant schools generally cater for pupils aged between five and seven. However, if the school has a nursery unit, it will cater for pupils aged between three and seven. Junior schools cater for pupils aged between seven and 11. Primary schools generally cater for pupils aged between five and 11. However, if the school has a nursery unit, it will cater for pupils aged between three and 11. Community and voluntary controlled schools are funded by Derbyshire County Council with the headteacher and governing body responsible for running the school. The admissions policy is determined and administered by the county council. Voluntary aided schools are jointly funded by Derbyshire County Council and a voluntary organisation, usually a church diocesan board. The headteacher and governing body run the school. The admissions policy is determined and administered by the governing body. Catholic schools are voluntary aided schools. Foundation schools are funded by Derbyshire County Council but responsibility for running the school rests with the headteacher and governing body. The admissions policy is determined and administered by the governing body. Academies are funded directly by central government and responsibility for running the school rests with the headteacher and academy trust. The admissions policy is determined and administered by the academy trust. All of the above schools are called mainstream schools. Enhanced-resource schools are mainstream schools with additional resources, such as extra staff, for certain children with Statements of Special Educational Needs or an Education, Health and Care Plan. Pupils are not generally taught separately and are included in the mainstream classes. Special schools are attended by children with Statements of Special Educational Needs or an Education, Health and Care Plan. Special schools provide for pupils whose disability requires a more comprehensive approach than a mainstream school or an enhancedresource school can provide. Some experience of mainstream school may be possible. The council handles admissions for all special schools. The normal area is a defined geographical area, made up of the area around the school, which the school serves. You will be advised of your normal area school if you apply online or by phone. Alternatively, you can enter your postcode into an interactive tool on our website, to find out what your normal area school is. You can also find out from the Admissions and Appeals Team by ing or ringing the Admissions and Appeals Team on School normal area maps can be viewed via Search for a School at If you consider your child Catholic, it means he or she is also resident in the normal area of a Catholic school. If you are unsure about your child s status regarding the Catholic school serving your area, contact the diocese for advice. The number is on page 4. We use the word parent throughout the guide. It means anyone who has a parental responsibility in accordance with the terms of the Children Act A few children with special educational needs require a detailed assessment by us. This was called a statutory assessment of special educational needs, however from 1 September 2014 it will be called an education, health and care needs assessment. The child s requirements are set out in a document called a Statement of Special Educational Needs / Education, Health and Care Plan. The published admission number is the set number of places available at a school. Letter from Councillor Kevin Gillott Starting school is a huge step for any child.

The council is not presently able to write to parents reminding them of when their child should start school. If you are a parent living in Derbyshire, excluding Derby city, the information contained in this guide explains how you can apply for a primary school place for your child whether that school is in or outside Derbyshire. If you are requesting a place at a school outside Derbyshire we will send the form to the neighbouring council for consideration and liaise with them through the process. The decision on whether the child can be offered a place will be taken by the council which runs the school, or the governing body if it is a voluntary aided, academy or foundation school. You may want to check with the school s home council how places are allocated in that area. This does not include independent schools. Similarly, if you live outside Derbyshire but want your child to attend a Derbyshire school you should make the application through your home council who will liaise with us. Even if you have already approached a school or feel you have put your child s name down at a school that is not a formal application. A formal application can only be made by following the process explained in this guide. We invite you to state preferences for any three schools and give your reasons. We would prefer you to apply online. It s quick and it s free. See If you cannot access the internet you can apply by phone. Ring Call Derbyshire on The call centre is open between 8am and 8pm, Monday to Friday, and Saturdays 9.30am to 4pm. If for some reason you are unable to make an application either online or by telephone ring the Admissions and Appeals Team on Make sure your application is in by midnight on 15 January Obtaining a place for your child in a primary school How does it work? You fill in one application only, no matter how many schools you want to apply for. There is no need to fill out a separate application for each school. Only make one application online or by phone. Derbyshire County Council acts as a clearing house for admitting all Derbyshire pupils to primary, infant and junior schools. Transfer from infant to junior school When children are due to leave infant school and need to move to a different school for their junior education, parents must make an application. A place in a particular infant school does not guarantee a place at the associated junior school. Similarly, a place at a particular junior or primary school does not guarantee a place at a particular secondary school. The closing date for parents to return forms is midnight on 15 January Applications are needed from all parents, including those who want their child to attend their normal area school. Please note there is no automatic right to a place in any particular school, even where a child lives in the normal area of a school, has a sibling in attendance or attends an associated primary school. Supplementary Forms Some voluntary aided, academy and foundation schools may want you to fill in supplementary forms or provide documentation in addition to an application you make to us. Look at the school s brochure to see if this is the case. This is so that they can apply their own admission criteria. For example, they might want proof of your address or proof that your child has been baptised. Supplementary forms are available from the relevant school and also from Derbyshire County Council, including online. Any additional paperwork of this type should be returned to the school by the closing date. This supplementary paperwork is not instead of our application form. You will still need to make an application to us. Special Educational Needs If your child has a Statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education, Health and Care Plan his or her admission is dealt with through the statement. You should contact the Special Needs Section of Derbyshire County Council on or MOVING TO SECONDARY SCHOOL Page 4 Page 5

If there are more applications than there are places available at a school, places will be allocated according to the school s published admissions criteria.

7 Important points Get your application in on time via the internet or call centre. If you miss the deadline we will not be able to consider your application until the ones that we received on time have been dealt with. Don t name the same school more than once as a preference this will not increase your chances of a place. We will withdraw a school place where false information has been used to secure an offer. Think about listing your normal area school. You may want to consider including the normal area school as one of your preferences, though it does not have to be your first preference. If you do not include the normal area school as one of your preferences, it may fill up with pupils who have said they would prefer to go to that school. This could mean the only school with available places may be further away and could mean you have to pay for transport to a distant school. If you do not make an application you cannot assume your child will get an automatic place at your normal area school. We will first offer places to those who have expressed a preference. If you do not make an application we will only be able to give your child a place at your normal area school if places are still available. If your normal area school is full we will give your child a place in the nearest school which has room. This could mean you paying transport costs to a distant school. Consider how your child will get to school when making your preferences. You are responsible for getting your child to school. If your child gets a place at a distant school, this could mean that you pay transport costs. Details of the transport policy are on page 16. Read these carefully before deciding your preferences. Only make one application online or by phone. Late applications received after the closing date will be included only if the reason for the delay is considered exceptional and appropriate evidence has been provided. Other late applications will not be considered until after applications received by the closing date have been dealt with. Who decides the rules? In community schools and voluntary controlled schools, Derbyshire County Council decides the rules for getting places. In voluntary aided Church of England, Catholic and Methodist schools, as well as foundation and academy schools the governors decide admission rules for their school. The rules are known as admissions criteria. Under the 1996 Education Act, you have a legal right to express a preference for which school you want your child to attend. The county council and school governors have a general duty to meet this preference as long as it does not prejudice the provision of efficient education or the efficient use of resources or the council or governors are required to take extra measures under the Key Stage 1 class size legislation. Even if your child attends a nursery class at a school or co-located children s centre you must make a new application for a reception place. Children do not transfer automatically. Similarly, a new application must be made for transfer from infant to junior school. Parents should be aware that some junior schools do not have sufficient places to admit all pupils from the local infant school. Attendance at a particular nursery gives no priority for a place at an infant or primary school. Similarly, attendance at a particular infant school gives no priority for admission to a particular junior or primary school, except in Eckington. In law there is no automatic right to a place in any particular school. We will offer you one place at the highest priority school possible. Where we cannot offer a place at any of your chosen schools your child will be allocated a place at the normal area school if places are still available or the next nearest school with places available. The rules for getting a place at a Derbyshire school on request up to their published admission number (as shown in the list at the back of the guide) which takes account of the amount of accommodation available. In the case of offers for places in schools in neighbouring councils, they make the decision and we make the offer on their behalf. Admissions criteria Community and voluntary controlled schools Individual pupils who have a Statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education, Health and Care Plan which names the school will be admitted. In deciding on admissions to all community and voluntary controlled schools in Derbyshire, the following order of priority will be adopted. Different rules apply in Eckington and part of the Long Eaton area. These rules are set out below and on the next page together with a list of the schools to which they apply. 1. 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). 2. Children living in the normal area* served by the school at the time of application and admission who have brothers or sisters attending the school at the time of application and admission. 3. Children living in the normal area served by the school at the time of application and admission. 4. Children not living in the normal area served by the school but who have brothers or sisters** attending the school at the time of application and admission. 5. In the case of voluntary controlled church schools, children whose parents request a place on religious grounds.*** 6. Other children whose parents have requested a place. When in the case of 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 above, choices have to be made between children satisfying the same criteria, those children living nearest to the school (measured by the nearest available route) will be given preference.**** APPLYING FOR A PLACE You should bear in mind that school admissions for children starting school for the first time and for children transferring from infant schools to junior education are considered on an annual basis so it is not possible to confirm that a place is available at a school before 16 April in the year before your child will join. Each year primary schools have to admit eligible pupils Eckington Area The admissions criteria for schools in the Eckington area are as follows: Eckington Birk Hill Infant and Killamarsh Infant, Marsh Lane Primary, Ridgeway Primary and Renishaw Primary Schools. As in all community and controlled schools, individual Page 10 Page 11

8 pupils who have a statement or education, health and care plan which names the school will be admitted. (i) 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). (ii) Children who have brothers or sisters** attending the school at the time of application and admission. (iii) Other children whose parents have requested a place. If there is insufficient room to admit all applicants, those children living nearest to the school measured by the nearest available route would have priority.**** Eckington Junior and Killamarsh Junior Schools (i) 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). (ii) Children attending these schools main contributory infant schools (Birk Hill Infant and Killamarsh Infant) and who have brothers or sisters** attending the school at the time of application and admission. (iii) Children attending these schools main contributory infant schools (Birk Hill Infant and Killamarsh Infant) at the time of application. (iv) Children whose parents have requested a place at the school who have brothers or sisters attending the school at the time of application and admission. (v) Other children whose parents have requested a place. When in the case of (ii), (iii), (iv) or (v) above, choices have to be made between children satisfying the same criteria, those children living nearest to the school (measured by the nearest available route) will be given preference.**** Parklands Infants and Harrington Junior (Long Eaton) The admissions criteria for these schools are as follows: As in all community and controlled schools, individual pupils who have a statement which names the school will be admitted. (i) Looked after children and children who were looked after but ceased to be because they were adopted (or became subject to a residence order or special guardianship order). (ii) Children living in the normal area served by the schools at the time of application and admission who have brothers or sisters attending the schools at the time of application and admission. (iii) Children living in the normal area served by the schools at the time of application and admission. (iv) Children not living in the normal area served by the schools but who have brothers or sisters attending the schools at the time of application and admission. (v) Other children whose parents have requested a place. When in the case of (ii), (iii), (iv) or (v) above, choices have to be made between children satisfying the same criteria, those children living nearest to the school (measured by the nearest available route) will be given preference. Definitions * Living in the normal area, is defined as the child having settled residence in a property which is the child s only or main residence. Documentary evidence including proof of residence at the property concerned may be required e.g. council tax/utility bills, sale/rental agreements. The County Council reserves the right to withdraw any offer of a school place which has been obtained as a result of misleading or fraudulent information. Please note a place cannot be guaranteed for any child, even those living in a school s normal area (or, in the Eckington area, attending a contributory primary school). **The term brother or sister includes: (a) a half-brother and/or a half-sister (b) a legally adopted child being regarded as a brother or sister (c) a step-brother and/or step-sister residing in the same family unit ***Parents seeking a place at a voluntary controlled school on religious grounds need to have a supplementary form completed by a Minister, Priest or Pastor or Religious leader if the child is a member of another Christian Church or world Faith, who know the family and can confirm regular attendance at public worship (Regular worship is defined as attendance at public worship at least once a month). The form is available from the Admissions and Appeals Team or online and should be returned to the Admissions and Appeals Team. Baptismal certificates, where appropriate, should also be supplied. Exceptional circumstances will be considered if explained in writing by the relevant religious leader. ****Route Measurement The Children and Younger Adults Department has a Geographic Information System (GIS) to measure the nearest available route. It is measured by a standard walking distance calculated to within two metres. This measurement is taken from the postal address file, normally the house front door. For schools the grid reference is taken from the postal address file and will normally be the centre of the school. Footpaths that are known and assessed as suitable by the Council when places are allocated will be used in distance calculations. Please note that not all footpaths are recorded on the GIS system, and not every route is assessed as suitable. If you are seeking to rely on a minor footpath or a newly developed route as your nearest available route, you may wish to check that the route is one recognised by the County Council for school admission purposes. Routes brought to the attention of the Council will be added to the GIS system if they are assessed as suitable. However, new routes recognised after school places have been allocated during a normal admissions round will not be taken into account during the same admissions round. Residence in all categories The home address used for school admission purposes is the address where the child is residing at the time of both application and admission. Where an application includes more than one address due to shared parental responsibility, we will use the address where the child resides for the majority of the school week (where they usually or mainly sleep between Monday and Friday). Parents and carers are required to submit full details with supporting information to enable us to determine which address to use for the purpose of admission. Where parents provide evidence that the child resides equally at both addresses during the school week, and we are unable to reach a decision based on the information received, parents will be asked to notify the Council of the mutually agreed address to be used for the purpose of school admissions. Please note the same address will be used in the assessment of eligibility for home to school transport assistance. Where the county council has reasonable grounds for believing the home address is not the child s only or main residence it reserves the right to carry out investigations which may include visits to the property. What to do if both parents cannot agree on the school(s) to be applied for Parents are expected to consult with each other and agree on the school(s) for which they wish to express a preference. The Council is unable to investigate whether applications have been agreed, or to resolve disagreements between parents. In the absence of agreement between parents the Council will process the preference of the parent who has care of the child for the greater part of the school week (see definition of residence). In cases where the Council is unable to determine the home address (see definition of residence), and/or there is no parental agreement or Court Order, the Council will be unable to process the application further until the matter has been resolved. Parents are encouraged to resolve disagreements as soon as possible, as delays may affect the availability of places at preferred schools. Once a school place has been offered, any disagreement on the child s placement will be a matter for parents to resolve. Voluntary aided, academy and foundation schools The criteria for admissions to aided, academy and foundation schools are decided by each school s governing body and are listed briefly on pages 54 to 69 of this guide. Full details can be obtained directly from the school. Withdrawing an offer For admission procedures to be fair it is important that all the information you provide is accurate. If we find that any information provided by parents is misleading or fraudulent, the county council reserves the right to withdraw any offer of a school place. Children of multiple births Where the final place to be allocated within the Published Admission Number would separate children of multiple births a place(s) will also normally be offered to the other child/children. What to do if I have changed my mind about the school I want my child to attend You can change your mind easily as long as it is before the deadline on 15 January If you have made an online application just log on and amend your form. If you have made an application by telephone you must contact Call Derbyshire on But if you change your mind after the deadline preference changes will only be accepted where the council agrees there is good reason for doing so, for example a change of address. Supporting evidence may be required. You should be aware that whilst a change in your preference order may be accepted by the council, dependent on the point it is received in the allocation process it may not be possible to action the change until after the offer date, particularly if the change involves a school(s) in other council areas and preference information has already been exchanged. You should also bear in mind that if you wish to add a new school to your preferences this may be treated as late. If you do change your mind after the deadline you must either the Admissions and Appeals Team on or call them on My circumstances have changed, such as change of address or change of current school If you or your child s circumstances change, such as a change of address or a change of current school, you must contact the Admissions and Appeals Team immediately by ing or by calling them on Any change in your circumstances might affect the allocation of a school place. APPLYING FOR A PLACE Page 12 Page 13

9 Changing your child s school at other times You may want to apply for your child to change schools other than when they are due to start primary, junior or secondary education. This could be because of a change of address. These are known as in-year admissions. In-year applications for admission to school Changing a child s school is a very important step to take; it can affect your child in many ways. Guidance notes are provided by the council to help you through the in-year application process. It is important to read the notes before completing an application. If you want to apply for a place at a school in Derbyshire you can do this online at If you cannot access the internet you can apply by phone by ringing Call Derbyshire on Internet access is available at all Derbyshire libraries, Children s Centres and some schools may also let you use their computer and telephone facilities to make an application. You may also complete a paper application form. To obtain a paper form, or phone the Admissions and Appeals Team on and ask for an in-year application form. Alternatively, some schools in Derbyshire will accept approaches direct, but may still require you to complete the council s application form. Please note schools are required to notify the council of all applications and their outcomes. lf you want to apply for a place at a school in another council area you should contact the council where the school is located in the first instance. Contact details are on page 70 of this guide. For children with statements of special educational need or an Education, Health and Care Plan parents should contact the SEN Section at County Hall on or How does it work? The law enables parents of children seeking a school place to express preferences. Parents should note that admission authorities cannot necessarily guarantee a place for any child, even where they move into the school s normal area. In law there is no automatic right to a place in any particular school. You are invited to name 3 schools at which you wish your child to be considered for a place. You should think very carefully about your choice of school(s); these should then be listed in priority order (i.e. beginning with your most preferred school). It is advisable to consider including your child s normal area school as one of your preferences though it does not have to be your first preference. The Council operates a Fair Access Protocol (available at to ensure that children without a school place who find themselves in challenging circumstances are admitted to school as quickly as possible. Do schools have waiting lists? For primary and junior transfer applications, waiting lists will be maintained by Derbyshire County Council for oversubscribed Derbyshire schools. Waiting lists will be set up on 16 April 2015 and maintained until 20 December Children s names will automatically be placed on these lists where it has not been possible to offer a place and they have given this preference a higher priority than the school at which they have been offered a place. A vacancy arises only when the number of offers to a particular school falls below the published admission number (PAN) or, in cases where an admission authority has offered places above the PAN, when offers fall below the revised number. (This excludes places secured through the appeals process). Priority on the waiting list is determined according to the published admission criteria. This means that a child s position on the list is not fixed and can go up or down the list as vacancies arise and/or further applications are received. The date of application does not affect waiting list order. Some voluntary aided, foundation and academy schools may maintain waiting lists beyond this date. Please check with the school concerned. Some neighbouring councils have different rules on waiting lists. Please check with them if applicable. The Council does not maintain waiting lists for in-year admissions for community and controlled schools. Some voluntary aided, academy and foundation schools in Derbyshire and schools in other council areas may maintain waiting lists for in-year admissions and if your application is refused you should contact the school to place your child s name on the waiting list. If you wish to place your child s name on the list for a Derbyshire school for the next academic year you will need to make a new application in the term preceding the new academic year to update their application details and confirm your continuing interest. Priority on the waiting list is determined according to the school s oversubscription criteria. A list of neighbouring councils is given on page 70. Appeals When parents are unable to obtain a place for their child at the school they want, they can appeal against the decision to an appeal panel independent of the council and the school. Appeals in the primary and junior transfer round will normally be heard by 17 July 2015 and for in-year admissions will be held within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged. You can get more information and make your appeal online at Alternatively you can contact the Admissions and Appeals Team by ing or ring For appeals in respect of places at schools not in Derbyshire, parents are advised to contact the council which maintains the school in the first instance. A list of neighbouring councils is on page 70. The decision reached by the independent panel will be binding on the council and the parents. A further application in respect of the same school will not be entertained in the same academic year unless significant and material changes in circumstances arise. Infant (Key Stage 1 and Foundation) Appeals By law, subject to certain limited exceptions, no infant class may contain more than 30 pupils. Infant classes are those in which the majority of pupils will reach the age of five, six or seven during the school year. Admissions authorities can refuse to admit a child if to do so would require the school to take action such as employ an extra teacher or build an extra classroom to keep infant classes at 30 or less. Parents can appeal in this situation but the appeal panel can only uphold an appeal in limited circumstances. The panel must dismiss the appeal where: a) it finds that the admission arrangements complied with admissions law and were correctly and impartially applied; or b) it finds that the admission arrangements did not comply with admissions law or were not correctly and impartially applied but that, if they had complied and had been correctly and impartially applied, the child would not have been offered a place; and it finds that the decision to refuse admission was one which a reasonable admission authority could have made. The threshold for finding that an admission authority s decision to refuse admission was not one that a reasonable authority would have made is high. The panel will need to be satisfied that the decision to refuse to admit the child was perverse in the light of the admission arrangements i.e. it was beyond the range of responses open to a reasonable decision maker or a decision which is so outrageous in its defiance of logic or of accepted moral standards that no sensible person who had applied his mind to the question could have arrived at it.

10 How will my child get to school? Transport to the normal area school We provide assistance with transport for full-time infant, junior and primary school pupils who do not live within two miles walking distance of their normal area school. It is measured by the shortest available route. Bus passes or refunds are issued where appropriate and special contract transport is arranged if public transport is not available. There may be exceptions to the transport rules if we agree that the route to the normal area school is hazardous for a child, accompanied if necessary, to undertake on foot. Spare places on a contract bus may be provided on a concessionary basis for children who are not normally entitled to free transport, however a charge will be made of 325 per academic year. Transport to faith schools The provision of subsidised transport to faith schools will cease in September 2015, with protection offered to pupils in key years i.e. those entering Year 6 and Year 11 in 2015 who were previously entitled by right to assistance. Spare seats will be available to all pupils on this transport and will be sold on a first come first served basis. The contribution charge for these seats will be consistent with other charges for local authority provided transport. In September 2015 this will be 325 per academic year for a primary pupil. Transport to other schools For more information please refer to our transport policy available on Transport for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities Transport will be provided for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities who attend their nearest school, where the journey exceeds the statutory walking distances as outlined above or in other cases in accordance with the council s special educational needs transport policy. Provision of transport will not generally be made if the preferred school is further away from the child s home than another school considered appropriate by the council. For more information please refer to our special educational needs transport policy available on Please contact the Special Needs Section at County Hall, Matlock, DE4 3AG (Tel: ), or if you have any queries. Enquiries and reviews Any enquiries about school transport should be made to Student Services. You can contact Student Services by at or by phone on If a parent s request for help with transport is refused and they feel that they may have special family circumstances which warrant help, then they can ask for the decision to be reviewed. The review will give the opportunity for the parent to state the particular reasons they feel their child should receive help with transport. Sustainable modes of travel As part of our Sustainable Modes of Travel Strategy the authority is actively supporting all schools in encouraging children and parents to make less use of the car for the journey to and from school and to consider walking, cycling and use of public transport as viable alternatives. School travel plans have now been adopted by all schools in Derbyshire and, through their implementation, the authority will continue to provide this support. For more information visit Am I entitled to free school meals? From September 2014 all pupils in Key Stage 1, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will be offered a Universal Infant Free School Meal which will be funded by the Government. As well as this all pupils, regardless of their age, whose parents receive the following support payments are entitled to receive free school meals: Income Support Income Based Jobseeker s Allowance Income Related Employment and Support Allowance support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 the guarantee element of State Pension Credit Child Tax Credit, provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by HMRC) that as of 6 April 2014 does not exceed 16,190. Children who receive Income Support or Income Based Jobseeker s Allowance in their own right are also entitled to receive free school meals. As well as the pupil receiving a free school meal the school will also qualify for the Pupil Premium which provides additional funding for the school. Contact your child s school for more details and a form to fill in or apply online at To find out whether you are entitled to claim any benefits call Derbyshire County Council s Benefits Helpline on ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Parents who send their children to a school which is not their normal area school will not normally receive assistance with transport (children living outside the county attending Derbyshire schools should apply to their home council). However, assistance with transport will be provided when a child attends a school, other than the normal area school, which is beyond the two mile limit but is closer to the child s home than the normal area school.

11 Early years education All children have the right to a free early years education place in the term* following their third birthday, subject to the availability of places. Free places are available for up to 15 hours per week over a minimum of two days and may be taken with one or two early years providers. Providers should, where reasonably practicable, be flexible in how they offer the free entitlement. For details of early years settings contact Call Derbyshire on or visit The 15 hours will be provided free of charge. Some providers will be able to offer additional hours for which parents will be charged, but no parent will be obligated to do this. Free early years education funding is also available for eligible two year olds the term following their second birthday in some schools and many day nurseries, pre schools and childminder settings. If the household income is less than 16,160 a year and/or parents are on certain benefits, children can access up to 15 hours per week with an early years provider. To find out if families are eligible for the funding or for further information, visit Text* Child to or contact / *Texts cost 10p Parents may choose their free early years provision from a range of council-run, private, voluntary or independent educational settings or a combination of these. Some parts of Derbyshire provide council-run nursery schools or classes. Children may be considered for a place on a part-time basis of up to 15 hours per week, but usually they cannot join until the start of the term following their third birthday. Parents should contact the head teacher of the relevant school or setting which they wish their child to attend. If too many places are requested in council-run schools or nurseries, governors will use the following order of priorities: 1. Children in care, or who have a safeguarding plan. 2. Children living in the normal area served by the school at the time of application and admission (including those living in another council s area). For a definition of living in the normal area see note * on page Children not living in the normal area served by the school but who have brothers or sisters attending the school at the time of application and admission. See note ** on page Other children whose parents have requested a place. Where, in the case of 3 or 4 above, choices have to be made between children satisfying the same criteria, those children living nearest to the school (measured by the nearest available route) will be given preference. See note **** on page Please note: Parents have no automatic right to a nursery place for their child in their normal area school. Parents should not be allocated places in more than one council-run school for their child. The rules on admissions and appeals, as explained on pages 11 to 13, do not apply to nursery schools and classes. If a child cannot be admitted to a nursery class at their parents preferred school they should make representations to the headteacher in the first instance. Providers of nursery education should adopt an inclusive approach, promoting equality of opportunity, particularly to the most disadvantaged, children in care and children with a disability or special need. *Term 1: September December Term 2: January March Term 3: April August Transferring from early years to primary education Primary education Children who have received early years provision or attended a council run nursery school or class will normally go into full time infant education in September in the school year in which they become five years old. A place in a school s nursery class or co-located chiidren s centre childcare setting does not guarantee a reception place, a new application must be made for a reception place. By law, you must arrange for your child to start school full time at the beginning of the term (in this context, a term is as detained in legislation, see below) after his or her fifth birthday unless you make arrangements to educate your child otherwise than at school. All children are eligible for a full-time place in the September following their fourth birthday. On the offer of a place you have the right to defer admission until your child reaches statutory school age, provided the place is taken up within the same academic year. You can also request that your child attends part-time until they reach compulsory school age. If your child is summer born (i.e. born between the beginning of April and end of August) and you do not take up a reception place in the academic year and choose to make an application for the following September, the application will normally be considered for admission into year 1. Exceptionally, if your child is summer born and you do not feel they are ready for school you can request that they enter reception class in the September after their fifth birthday. If you are considering this option you should in the first instance discuss it with your child s pre-school provider, prospective future headteacher and any other professionals involved as soon as possible. If after discussion you then wish to make a formal request you should contact the Admissions and Appeals Team for a copy of the Council s policy on the admission of children outside of their normal age group by ing or call Requests should be submitted in summer term 5 preceding the year of admission and will need to be accompanied by evidence to show that delayed admission into reception would be in the child s best interests. All relevant factors will be considered when assessing requests against the Council s policy on the admission of children outside of their normal age group. Please note that if a request is not agreed then a place may be offered in year 1. Note In this context term relates to one third of the academic year i.e. autumn, spring and summer. Parents should note that we operate a six term year for example Derbyshire s autumn term one and two are equivalent to one term as defined in legislation. Don t forget you can look at our glossary if there are any terms you are unsure of the meaning of. Children s centres Derbyshire has 54 children s centres across the county. These provide a range of services to children under 5 and their families. This includes the provision of early years education with day care in some centres as well as a range of services including family support, health access and links to Jobcentre Plus, training and adult education. Please see for details of all children s centres in the county. Extended services childcare Many schools now offer before and after school activities for which there is a small charge. This can either be delivered by the school or by a partner organisation. For further details of which schools offer out of school childcare please contact Call Derbyshire on ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Page 18 Page 19

12 Children with special educational needs The term special educational needs is used when children have a learning difficulty or disability, which makes it harder for them to learn than most children of the same age. A child with special educational needs may need extra help or different help from other pupils of the same age. Only a few children with special educational needs require a detailed assessment by us. This assessment was called a statutory assessment of special educational needs, however from 1 September 2014 it will be called an education, health and care needs assessment. Following education, health and care needs assessment, the Council may decide to issue an Education, Health and Care Plan which describes your child s needs and how they should be met. It also gives you the opportunity to express a preference for which school your child should attend. More information about our provision for special educational needs is available on or It is Derbyshire s policy to meet children s needs, wherever possible, in mainstream schools including those schools with enhanced resource status. Most children with statements of special educational needs or Education, Health and Care Plans will be educated in mainstream schools, but places at enhanced resource and special schools are given to some pupils with statements. For school places for children with a current statement of special educational needs or an Education, Health and Care Plan parents should contact the Special Needs Section of Derbyshire County Council on or Placing a child outside their normal age group The year group with which a child is taught has implications for a child s social as well as educational development. We believe it is better for children to stay within their peer group. For children whose attainments either fall significantly below or exceed the expected levels at a particular key stage, the Council considers that in almost all cases a child s individual needs can be met by schools without accelerated or delayed admission to another year group. Exceptionally a child may be admitted outside of their normal year group. Such a decision will be based on the circumstances of each case and before making a formal request parents are strongly advised in the first instance to discuss the matter with their child s pre-school provider/current headteacher, prospective future headteacher and any other professionals involved. If after discussion, parents then wish to make a formal request they should contact the Admissions and Appeals Team for a copy of the Council s policy on the admission of children outside of their normal age group by ing or call Requests should be accompanied by evidence to show that the child s admission outside of their normal age group is in the child s best interests. All relevant factors will be considered when assessing requests against the Council s policy on the admission of children outside of their normal age group. Please note that if a request is not agreed then a place may be offered in another year group. School charging policy Charges may not be made for any cost associated with anything your child does during the school day. Schools may ask for voluntary contributions for school visits. Each governing body is required to tell parents details of the school s charging and remissions policy. Will my child have to wear uniform? Uniform is decided by each school s board of governors. Other financial assistance The county council has no general scheme of assistance to provide school clothing, clothing grants or any other financial help to parents. In exceptional circumstances, where a child is prevented from attending school, the council s education welfare service can give advice on what financial help might be available. The Authority has agreed the following terms and holiday dates for community and controlled schools in Derbyshire. Individual schools will notify parents of staff training days (INSET) when schools will be closed to children each year.
