Admission Arrangements

The Local Authority is responsible for admissions to Harmondsworth Primary. They are able to admit 30 pupils in each year group.

Where there are more applications than there are places available, the Local Authority will admit pupils according to the following criteria, which are listed in order of priority:
A looked after child (as defined in the Children Act 1989) or a child who was previously looked after but, immediately after being looked after, became subject to an adoption, child arrangement order, or a special guardianship order.
  1. Children who suffer from a long-term medical or psychological condition, which makes it necessary for them to attend a particular school.
  2. Children who have a member of the immediate family who suffer from a long-term medical or psychological condition, which makes it necessary for them to attend a particular school.
  3. Children who have a sibling* living within the defined boundary area (identified below).
  4. Children who have a sibling* who was admitted to the full-time school prior to 31 August 2017.
  5. Children living nearest the school within the defined boundary area (identified below).
  6. Children of staff where the member of staff is recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage.
  7. Children who have a sibling* living outside of the defined boundary area (identified below).
  8. Children living outside of the defined boundary area (identified below). Priority will be given within each criteria for those living nearest the school according to distance, which will be measured in a straight line from the point set by Ordnance Survey at the child’s home address and the school using Hillingdon Council’s computerised mapping system. The supporting evidence in criteria 2 and 3 above should set out the particular reasons why the school in question is the most suitable and the difficulties that would be caused if the child had to attend another school. The admission authority cannot give higher priority to children under these criteria, if the required documents have not been produced. Applications must be supported by medical evidence from a GP or hospital consultant.
* For the purposes of criteria 4, 5 and 8, a sibling is defined as a brother or sister, half-brother or sister with at least one parent in common, adopted brother or sister living in the same household who currently attends the full time school (not the nursery) and will continue to do so on the date of admission.

Admission Appeals:

Parents who are not offered a place for their child are entitled to appeal to an independent appeal committee under the Provision of the 1980 Education Act. Parents wishing to appeal should complete an appeal form available from the school. The form should then be returned to the Clerk to the appeals Committee via the school within 14 days of notification not to admit.
