New Bradwell is an academy school and, as such, is its own admissions authority. The local governing body will operate a single point of entry at the beginning of the academic year (1st September) in which the child reaches their fifth birthday. Entry in September 2021 is therefore open to all children born between 1st September 2016 and 31st August 2017.
The school works in conjunction with the local authority and details of the co-ordinated scheme for admissions are available in the authority’s booklet, that is available from the school. The booklet also explains how parents can express a preference for a school and give reasons for that preference. Applications for entry to New Bradwell School in September 2021 must be on the LA’s admission form and returned to the LA by the deadline. Alternatively, you can apply online. Decisions on which children are to be offered a place will be made by the Local Governing Body in line with the published criteria. Offers of a place will be made by the LA in March 2021. New Bradwell School has a published admission number of 630.
The defined area for admissions is New Bradwell, Blue Bridge, Oak Ridge Park, Stantonbury Farm Park and the northern part of Bancroft. Additionally, New Bradwell School accepts children with a specific language or communication difficulty statement from outside this area into its Communications Difficulties Department. There are a total of twelve places available in the department throughout the whole school.
In the event of there being greater demand for admission than there are places, children with a statement of special educational need, naming New Bradwell School, have the highest priority.
The priority for admission is based on the criteria below:
- Children in care
- Children living in the defined area: New Bradwell, Blue Bridge, Oak Ridge Park, Stantonbury Farm Park and the northern part of Bancroft and have a sibling on roll at the time of admission
