The standard admission number for September 2016/17 will be 60.
Your child may start Brooklands Primary School at any time between the ages of 3 and 11 and there are different arrangements depending upon the age of your child.
Parents should come to the school office where their details will be taken and parents will be notified by letter when a place becomes available at the appropriate time.
Mainstream – Key Stage 1
An application form is sent from Derbyshire County Council to be completed by parents and returned to D.C.C. who will inform school as to the allocation of places. If you move into the area during the school year an application form can be collected from the school office, completed and returned. You will then be informed if your application is successful.
Key Stage 2
If your child already attends Brooklands Primary School there will be no need to apply for admission to Key Stage 2. If you move into the area during the school year you will need to follow the same procedure as for Key Stage 1 as all admissions are handled centrally by Derbyshire County Council.
Parents of Year 2 children at other infant schools should normally apply for admission by February of the year in which they want to start Key Stage 2.
Our normal catchment area extends from the school to the station, Fields Farm Estate and to the Green in the town centre.
It is the governments ruling that classes at Key Stage 1 will not exceed 30. It is the governors’ policy that junior classrooms should not exceed 30.
Appeals for Admission to Brooklands Primary School
If the number of admission requests exceeds the standard number or numbers set for certain small classrooms and a child is refused a place, parents can appeal against the decision to an independent appeal committee. Details of the appeals procedure and form for County Schools can be obtained from the area Education Office. The address is as follows:
