Admissions to Audley Primary School
Academic Year 2020-2021
Surrey County Council is the admission authority for this school. To find up to date information about the school’s admission arrangements and details on how to apply, either as part of the normal intake or during the school year, please use this link to the Surrey County Council website.
Audley Primary is a one-form entry school. We admit 30 children into Reception each year. The selection criteria is standard for most Surrey Schools and is in the following order :
- Looked after and previously looked after children
- Exceptional social/medical need
- Children who will have a sibling at the school or at an infant/junior school which is on a shared/adjoining site on the date of admission
- Children for whom the school is the nearest to their home address
- Any other children, prioritised according to the distance they live from the school
There is no set catchment area and it changes dependent on the applications received for that particular year.
If there is over subscription within any criteria, priority is given according to the distance from the pupil’s permanent home address to the school. Distance is measured by a straight lines from the address point of the pupil’s house, as set by Ordnance Survey to the nearest school gate for pupils to use. You can find out how far you are from the school on the Surrey County Council website.
Other Year Groups & In Year Admissions
As with Reception admissions, Surrey County Council co-ordinates requests for the transfer to a new School across the County. If there is a space available in the year group requested, you will, under normal circumstances, be offered the place. If there is no place available you will be added to our waiting list and we will contact you if a place becomes available.
The following applications will be treated as in-year admissions:
• applications after 1 September 2020, for admission to Reception
• all applications for admission to Years 1 to 6
Applications must be made to the Local Authority on Surrey’s common application form. Where there are more applications than places available, each application will be ranked in accordance with the published oversubscription criteria for the School.
We always welcome visits from prospective parents, whether in our reception class at the start of your child’s school career, or at other points in their primary life. If your child will be starting school in September 2021, ordinarily, we would accommodate a school visit, however due to COVID-19 restrictions a school tour is not possible this academic year. The children and school leaders have created a short video to help you gain an understanding of what school life is like at Audley!
