    In Year Admissions

    Sometimes a child may need to join a school outside the normal admissions round if, say, you move house and your child can no longer attend their current school.  Admissions to all year groups during the school year (ie apart from children joining Reception Class at the start of the academic year in September) are classed as 'In Year Admissions'.

    For more information on in year applications please follow this link: Surrey County Council In Year Admissions page

    There are seven steps in the in year application process.

    Check if your application will be an in year admission or part of the normal admissions round
    You can make an in-year application if you need to join a school outside the normal admissions round, which would be for Reception, Year 3, Secondary etc.
    What you need to know before applying
    Read through the information about what you need to do to make an in year application.
    Choosing which school to apply for
    Research schools you want to apply for by looking at their website and visiting the school(s) you are interested in applying for.
    Complete the application form (see CMA form link below)
    Complete the online application form and submit it to Surrey County Council.  If you do not have access to the Internet please contact Clandon School office on 01483 222442 to request a paper copy of the form to be sent to you.
    If you attend either the Church of St Peter and St Paul, West Clandon or the Church of St Thomas, East Clandon you should also complete a Supplementary Information Form; available below or request a paper copy from Clandon School office.
    Outcome of your application
    Surrey County Council will process applications as quickly as possible.  You will be advised of the outcome, usually within 15 working days of receiving your fully completed application form.
    Please note that 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.  This is because schools are not available during the summer break and waiting lists start again from the beginning of the Autumn term.
    Accept or decline a place
    You must respond to any offer of a place within two weeks.  Your offer letter will explain how to accept or decline the place.  The offer may be withdrawn if you fail to accept the place in time.
    Adding your child to a waiting list
    If the school is not able to offer your child a place in the required year group your child will be added to a waiting list until a place in their year group becomes available.  The waiting list is ranked according to the school's admissions criteria.  Please note that your child's place on the waiting list may go down as well as up if other children join the waiting list who have a greater priority, according to the admissions criteria.

    To apply for an in year place at Clandon Primary School you will need to use CMA form.  This can be accessed via Surrey's Admissions Page (as above) or via this link: CMA In Year Admissions form  

    If the school is not able to offer you a place in the year group requested you have the right to appeal.  Appeals resulting from in year admission applications will be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged.  More information about making an appeal is available via this link:
