STEP Academy Trust is the admission authority for the Academies within the Trust and the allocation of school places has been delegated to the Local Authority School Admissions Team.
Please see below information regarding admissions guidance for parents on applying for a school. This includes basic information for parents on the choices they can make (ie to cater for those who are returning from the EEA who might not be fully up to speed with the English schools system), links across to the devolved administrations’ sites for those returning to Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, and more information on the in-year admissions process – https://www.gov.uk/schools-admissions.
Applications for classes other than Nursery must initially be made to your Local Authority (the authority you pay your council tax to) via their website. Here is a handy link to Sutton’s admissions page:
Applications will be prioritised according to the general criteria outlined below, and in full accordance with our Admissions Policy.
Please note the 2022/2023 Admission Policy has been updated in line with the requirements of the new School Admissions Code which comes into force on 1 September 2021 and will apply with immediate effect. Changes to the policies have been made to clarify the key issues around the admissions for vulnerable children, in-year admissions and Fair Access Protocols.
