What year group will my child be in?
Surrey County Council no longer produce glossy booklets on the primary and secondary admissions process and encourage parents to access this information online here.
Please note that as Yattendon is a junior school, our main intake year group is Year 3.
Admissions for September 2024
From the 30th October 2023 Parents and carers who live in Surrey will be able to apply for a primary school place. Where possible applicants should apply online at www.surreycc.gov.uk/admissions
On the 16th April 2024:
Applicants who applied online will be sent an email or receive a notification through the app 'ParentComms' with their outcome. Online applicants may also log in to their online account to view the outcome.
Letters will be sent by 1st class post to applicants who applied on paper and do not have an email address.
By 30th April 2024:
Applicants will be asked to accept or decline their offer online or, if they have made a paper application, by returning the paper reply slip to the School Admissions Team.
Late applications and changes of preference - primary, infant or junior schools
If you submit your application or make any changes to your preferences without a good reason after the deadline, your application will be treated as late. This may affect the possibility of your child being offered a place at one of your preferred schools.
After 8th February 2024:
All applications received after 8th February 2024 will be treated as late applications and only considered after all on-time applications have been processed. It is likely that there will be no vacancies at the school(s) you applied for, as these will have been allocated to those applying on time. However, if there are vacancies we will co-ordinate offers of places to these schools, based on each school's admission criteria. If there are no vacancies your child may be placed on the waiting list for the school(s) you have applied for.
After 1st May 2024:
Any application received after 1st May 2024 will be treated for waiting list purposes alongside on time applications, with any places allocated according to each school's admission criteria and not according to the date the child was added to the waiting list.
Applications received towards the end of the summer term or during the summer holidays may not receive an outcome until the start of the autumn term, due to school closures during the summer break.
In Year Applications
If you are applying for a place for the current school year, you will need to complete a Surrey County Council in-year CMA application form which can be obtained following the link below
Or alternatively please see documents below for an 'In-year Application Form' and 'Guidance notes'.
Waiting List Information
If you would like to be added to the waiting list for Year 3 - 6, an in-year application form will need to be submitted to Surrey County Council School Admissions. All our year groups currently have long waiting lists and unfortunately we cannot guarantee that your child will be offered a place. Please contact the school office via email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss the waiting lists or in-year admissions process.
