Process for In-Year Applications

If you would like to apply for a place at St. Johns C of E Infant School during the academic year, or to start Year 1 or Year 2 in September, you will need to make an In-Year application.

Your application should be made to the Surrey Schools Admission Team using the following link - please complete the Centrally Managed Application form (CMA)

https://www.surreycc.gov.uk/schools-and-learning/schools/admissions/in-year

In addition, you may also want to complete one of our additional supplementary information forms (SIF) to support your application. Please submit your completed SIF to the school office or email it to office@stjohns-farnham.surrey.sch.uk

Supplementary Information Form A - Regular Worship

Supplementary Information Form B - Sibling

Supplementary Information Form C - Staff

Surrey admissions typically take 3 weeks to process and once complete, the school will be notified of your application. It is worth checking with the school first to make sure there is a place available, and thereafter keeping in contact once the application has been made.

As we are an Own Admissions Authority school (OAA) and assuming there is a place available in your desired year group, you will receive an offer directly from the school within 10 school days of our notification of the completed application to Surrey admissions. This may be a telephone call or an email in the first instance.

Once a start date has been agreed with the school, the family will receive a letter confirming the offer of place and the expected start date along with a welcome pack containing joining information. The school will notify the Surrey admissions team of your acceptance and intended start date within 2 school days of your acceptance, and confirm your first attendance at the school on the day of admittance.

Appeals

Applications will only be refused where admission would result in the school going over it’s published admissions number (PAN).

Information and how to appeal a declined admissions application can be found here

Appeals resulting from in year admission applications will be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged. Appellants will be given at least 10 clear school days' notice of the appeal hearing date. Appellants will be sent a copy of the school’s case 7 clear working days in advance of the hearing. If an appellant wishes to submit further evidence which was not included with their initial appeal, it must be received no later than 5pm on the day preceding 3 clear working days before the appeal hearing date. The Appeal Panel must decide whether any additional evidence or
information received after this date may be considered, taking into account its significance and the effect of a possible need to adjourn the hearing.
