Admissions

 

Applications for Admission

Applications for admission to Reception Year in September 2021 (known as admission “in the normal admission round”) must be made to the Local Authority by completing and submitting their Common Application Form (“CAF”) which is accessible via the Local Authority’s admissions page on its website https://www.redbridge.gov.uk/schools/

Parents must ensure that they complete all necessary information (for example, details of siblings) in the CAF before it is submitted. Failure to do so by the application deadline will result in the child being placed into the next category that applies.

For children applying for one of the places reserved for Muslim pupils and/or for places under category 2 below, parents must complete and submit a supplementary information form (“SIF”) and submit it directly to the school. Failure to do so will result in the child being placed into the next category that applies, which will reduce the chance of achieving a place.The SIF is available for download below.

SIF Forms: 

Please send completed SIF forms to: va.admissions@al-noorprimary.org.uk 

Appeals:

If you did not get a place in your preferred school, you can appeal against the decision if you can demonstrate that the school’s admissions process was improperly applied, or that exceptional circumstances warrant admission of your child.

You can make an appeal using the appropriate form, which can be found below. Please carefully note the deadline you need to apply by, as late appeals applications will not be considered. APPEALS MUST BE SENT TO THE EMAIL ADDRESS AND NOT POSTAL ADDRESS ON THE FORM.

Offer Date: 16th April 
Appeals lodged by: 19th May 
Appeals to be heard by: 20th  July  

Please note:

Al-Noor Independent Primary School and Al-Noor Voluntary Aided Primary School are two separate schools, each connected to the Al-Noor Foundation, a registered charity. 

The Independent School is a one form entry co-educational school that charges fees and currently has provision for years three to six only. The Voluntary Aided School is a two form entry co-educational school that currently has provision for Reception through to year two.  

Each of the two schools operate under distinct and different statutory guidelines. The Independent School operates under the Independent School Standards whereas the Voluntary Aided Primary School operates under the statutory guidance applicable to local authority, Voluntary Aided, maintained schools. 

In light of these differences, each school operates its own separate admissions policy, available on each school's website. These make clear that applications for places in the Voluntary Aided school for siblings of pupils in the Independent Schooldo not attract any priority under the Voluntary Aided Admissions Policy
