Admissions Information for Coldfair Green Primary School
If you would like your child to attend our school, please see details of our admission arrangements below.
We strongly encourage visits to the school, before applications are made. Please make an appointment with Mrs Clare Williams, Head teacher, via the school office.
Academies, including Free School Academies are publicly funded independent schools with sponsors from the private or voluntary sectors or from churches or other faith groups.
The Trust Board is responsible for the strategic leadership of the school and for the admission of pupils.
Normal year of entry (Reception year) admissions to Coldfair Green Primary School are coordinated by the Local Authority and the Governing Body must use the published admission rules to prioritise applications. These admissions applications are completed via Suffolk County Council website, please see the link below (CAF1 form). As per Suffolk County Council guidance, any waiting lists for entry into Reception close on 31st December.
Coldfair Green Primary School is an own admission authority for all other in year admissions. This means if you wish your child to join our school at any other point than when they start school in the Reception year. Therefore, these applications are made direct to the school (ADM1 form). We aim to notify parents of the outcome of their application within 10 school days. If an application is refused, we will make clear the reasons for refusal and let parents know about their right to appeal. We will not determine a further application in the same school year, unless there has been a significant change in circumstances of the parent/carer, child or school. We do not hold waiting lists for in year applications.
There is a requirement under paragraph 2.17 of the School Admissions Code to make clear the process for requesting admission out of the normal age range. We will consider requests to place children outside of their normal age group, including summer born and premature children, in line with the requirements of paragraphs 2.17 to 2.17B of the School Admissions Code.
