This new website is deliberately simple with no images or videos, and it is therefore less likely to crash in the event of a high volume of traffic.

In-Year Applications

If you are looking for a place in Harris Primary Academy Haling Park because you have recently moved into the area, or your child is at another primary school and you feel that a change of school would benefit their education and/or general well-being, you are entitled to apply for a school place. 

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

Parent(s) wishing to appeal against the Academy’s decision on admissions, for any year group, should complete an Appeal Form (see below) stating the reason for the appeal, based on the published Admissions Criteria.

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 2020 at 5pm.

The appeals will be heard, in private, by an Independent appeal Panel. The Clerk to the Appeal Panel will make an appointment within a reasonable time, Appeals may be made in English or the Parents’/Carers’ first language.

·       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.
