Where  a  child  is  the  subject  of  a  Statement  of  Special  Educational  Needs where  the  Academy  is  named  in  the  Statement or an EHC (Educational Healthcare) Plan,  he or she  will  be  admitted under different regulations.

After the admission of pupils with Statements of Special Educational Needs or EHC Plans, we follow the local admission criteria and the following rules will be applied in the order of priority set out below to decide who will be offered a place:

1) Children in Care - Children who are looked after by a local authority or were previously looked after but immediately after being looked after, became subject to an adoption, residence, or special guardianship order.

2) Social Medical - Children who the Authority accepts have an exceptional medical or social need for a place at one specific school. Applications will only be considered under this category if they are supported by a written statement from a doctor, social worker or other relevant independent professional. The information must confirm the exceptional medical or social need and demonstrate how the specified school is the only school that can meet the defined needs of the child.

3) Brother or sister - Children with a brother or sister already attending Philip Lane and who will still be attending on the date of admission. This category includes foster brothers and sisters, half brothers and sisters or stepbrothers and sisters or other children living permanently at the same address. Parents should note that in all these cases, the brother or sister must be living at the same address as the child for whom the application is being made.

4) Children who are already in our nursery.

5) Distance - Children living closet to the Academy.  This is measured in a straight line from post office address point for the child's home, to the post office point of the academy, supplied by the Royal Mail using a computerised mapping system.

Supporting our families with Primary and Secondary applications

Applications are now mostly completed on line (e-Admissions), however here at Philip Lane we recognise that computers/internet are not always accessible to everyone.  Therefore during these key times at the start of a child's Primary and Secondary School life, we offer our parents and carers the opportunity to come into our Academy to receive support with their applications.


In-Year Applications

If you are looking for a place in Harris Primary Academy Philip Lane 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. 

Please contact the Admissions team at the Academy, (contact details above) to request an in-year admission form, or download from below. You can also return the form electronically for the attention of Miss Stickland on info@harrisprimaryphiliplane.org.uk 


For Parents/Carers who wish to appeal

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. If you wish to appeal an admissions decision please see the form below and contact the Admissions Team.
