Evidence required and how decisions are made

Consideration of these requests will include:

  • taking account of the parents’ views
  • information about the child’s academic, social and emotional development
  • whether they have previously been educated out of their normal age group
  • where relevant, the child’s medical history and the views of a medical professional
  • whether they may naturally have fallen into a lower age group if it were not for being born prematurely
  • the views of the headteacher of the school concerned and the child’s current school will also be taken into account

The Principal Educational Psychologist will make a final decision for Bracknell Forest maintained schools.

When informing a parent of the decision on the year group to which the child will be admitted, the parent will be notified of the reasons for the decision.

The parent has a statutory right to appeal against the refusal of a place at a school for which they have applied. This right does not apply if they are offered a place at the school but it is not in their preferred age group.
