Admissions to Year 3 in September 2024
By now you will have received notification of the outcome of your child’s application for a junior school place for September 2024.
Accepting or Declining your Offer - Once you have been offered a school place, you must accept or decline it by 30 April 2024. If you don't, the offer may be withdrawn. If you applied online you can reply online. If you applied by paper, you will need to return the reply slip by post.
Surrey Admissions strongly recommend you accept the place you are offered, even if this is not for the school you wanted. This will ensure your child has a school place in September. You can then go on waiting lists for other schools or appeal.
If you decline the offer and you have no alternative place you will be responsible for finding your child another school. The place you decline may be offered to another child so may not be available later if you change your mind.
Waiting Lists - We are sorry if your application to St. Martin’s Junior School was not successful.
If St Martin’s Junior School was a higher preference on your form than the school you have been offered your child will automatically be placed on our waiting list. If you did not put St Martin’s Junior School on your preference form but would now like to be placed on our waiting list please contact Surrey Admissions by telephone on 0300 200 1004. At this stage we are unable to tell you the position of your child on our waiting list; we should be able to provide this information during the firsts week of May. Your child’s name will remain on our waiting list until the end of the academic year 2024/25 (July 2025).
Appeals - If your child is not allocated a place at our school, you have the right to appeal. The letter you receive telling you that admission has been refused will also contain information on how to appeal. It is advisable to consider alternative schools for your child, as only a very small minority of the appeals that are considered by Appeal Panels are successful. Officers at the Surrey Schools and Childcare Service (Tel No. 0300 200 1004) can assist you with queries on alternative schools in your area. As an academy, our Governing Body is responsible for handling our appeals alongside Surrey County Council. If you wish to lodge an appeal, please visit the Surrey County Council website for full details. Our appeals timetable can be viewed here.
Details on how all Surrey infant, junior and primary school places were allocated will be available on the Surrey County Council's schools directory as soon as possible after the allocation.
If you have any further queries regarding admissions to St Martin’s Junior School please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will reply to your email as soon as possible. Please bear with us during this busy time.
