You can ask for your child’s name to be added to a school waiting list for the 2024/2025 academic year.
Applications are welcome for all year groups during the school year. If you would like to transfer your child from another school, please inform their current school that this is your intention and request a school transfer form. Please contact Ingleton C of E Primary School office at firstname.lastname@example.org to inform the school that you would like to request a place for your child. Once the school transfer form has been received, parents will be notified if there is place available and transition details will be discussed.
If you have applied for a place at our school for your child and they are not offered a place, you can appeal against this decision. Admission appeals are organised by Durham Local Authority for our school. Further information is available here: School admissions-appeals.
Applying for a school place if your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan
Ingleton C of E Primary School prides itself in being inclusive and will endeavour to support every pupil. We would love you to consider our school and we aim to meet the needs of all the children in our care.
We are committed to meeting the needs of all children including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. We would ask parents to discuss the identified needs with the school prior to starting so that appropriate intervention and support can be planned and implemented. Advice from the LA or other agencies may be requested to ensure any the school can meet any needs appropriately.
Children and young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan (or Statement of Special Education Needs) follow a different admission and transfer process for a new school. Please continue to complete Durham County Council’s parental preference form, as part of the admission process to a new school. You continue to have a right to request a particular school and this will be considered alongside the information that we have about your child’s special educational needs. The information would have been provided as part of the Education, Health and Care assessment or following the review meeting.
If you would like to discuss moving a child to our school please contact Mrs Karen Whitaker (SENCO / Head teacher). As a school we aim to do the very best in order to make all children feel welcomed and included during transition.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
