Kingswood: Jacob’s ladder posed a challenges we’ve faced before - working collaboratively at height - the twist was having to balance while supporting someone else as they climbed. We learnt that problem solving under pressure is a development point! https://t.co/qh9oI2RFsR

Kingswood: would be proud of the effort our children made during bushcraft: they built shelters using materials from the great outdoors. Who needs tents when you can make shelters using natural resources? 👀 https://t.co/7FRXqIOZvz

Kingswood: It’s all about teamwork in ‘team tech’. Our children built towers and wheelbarrows using a range of tools. The questions is: whose tower would remain standing without support? https://t.co/1snGaYAIgP

Kingswood: Developing their motor skills (and accuracy using a bow and arrow), the children showed that patience and focus are key components for success! Mr Hollis and Ms Bazely had a go too - can you guess who got the closest to the bullseye? 👀 https://t.co/awLS8YgfEc

Kingswood: Learning isn’t restricted to the classroom. Our children made buggies (using rope, poles, planks and barrels) which they rode. Needless to say, they all worked collaboratively and met their team’s goals. ’s in the making! https://t.co/I4M3jMc0EO

In-Year Applications

Since September 2013, the law allows you to apply directly to a school or academy instead of the Local Authority.  Please contact Admissions at the Academy, (contact details above) to request an in-year admission form or download below. Please note that there is no guarantee that a place will be available, but you have the right of appeal if you are refused a place.

 

For Parents/Carers who Wish to Appeal

If you wish to appeal you must contact Admissions at the Academy who will send you an appeals form to complete.

Completed forms should be sent to the Clerk to the Appeal Panel at:   

Harris Primary Academy Haling Park:  50-58 Haling Road, South Croydon, CR2 6HS

Completed appeal forms for Reception must be received by the Academy by the closing date 18 May 2021 at 5pm.

·       Only one appeal per application is allowed.

·       Appeals are conducted in person, and you may bring a friend.


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 pupil would cause to the education of the students already offered and the Health and Safety of all the pupils 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.
