Admission to primary schools 2013/14
Offers of Reception places for September 2013 were sent to parents on Wednesday 17 April.
Offers should be accepted or declined by 1 May 2013. If you were not offered your first preference school, your letter contains details of how to place your child's name on a waiting list and details of the admission authority for each primary school in Bexley for enquiries about why a place has not been offered and about appeals. If you decline the offer made, you must tell us which school your child will be attending. Offers to children on waiting lists will be made from 7 May 2013 onwards.
You have the right to appeal if you are not offered a place at one of the schools that you listed on your application form. The closing date for the receipt of appeals for Reception places in community and voluntary controlled schools is Friday 17 May. Appeals submitted by that date will be heard in June or the first half of July, and you will be given at least 10 school days' notice of the appeal date. Your appeal will still be heard if you submit the form later than 17 May, but you may have to wait longer for a date for the appeal to be arranged. An appeal form can be downloaded from the right of this page or you can ask the School Admissions Team for a copy. If you appeal, it does not affect the offer already made and you are advised to accept the current offer so that your child has a definite place if the appeal is unsuccessful.
If your child is 5 between 1 September 2013 and 31 August 2014, you live in Bexley and you have not yet applied for a place, you should do so as soon as possible. You must apply on a paper form. You can download the 'Admission to Primary Schools in Bexley 2013' booklet from the right hand side of this page and you can get paper copies of the form and the booklet from primary schools and Council Offices. You must enclose a copy of your Council Tax Bill, Child Benefit or Child Tax Credit letter, stating your child's name, and your child's birth certificate.
