Admission Arrangements

Overview:  If you want to send your child to Longcroft School, you must follow the admission processes overseen by East Riding of Yorkshire Council, which manages a county-wide co-ordinated scheme. Additional information can be found by clicking here to visit our Joinging the School page.

Reasons for a Co-ordinated Scheme:  Under the School Standards and Framework Act 1998, local authorities are required to formulate and determine co-ordinated schemes for primary school admissions.  Regulations specify what must be included in a co-ordinated scheme and the Secretary of State has also issued a School Admissions Code which includes mandatory provisions.

Aims of a Co-ordinated Scheme:  The Co-ordinated Scheme for Normal Admissions to Infant, Junior and  Primary Schools (the Scheme) aims to: set out how applicants must apply for school places; and ensure that all applicants resident in the East  Riding of Yorkshire  who apply for a school  place  for their child in the normal  admissions round are allocated a place at one school.

The Scheme  will not be used  to decide  which children are  eligible  for a  place  at  a school.     The admission arrangements published by a school’s  admission authority will be used to determine a child’s eligibility  for a place  at  a school.    The Scheme  sets  out how applications have to be made and the Scheme will be used to decide which place an applicant will be offered if: the child is eligible for a place at more than one school; or if the child does not qualify for a place at any of the schools for which the applicants have expressed preferences.

The Schools and Admission Authorities to which this Scheme Applies:  The Scheme   applies   to  all   mainstream   community (of which Longcroft is one),   foundation,   voluntary   aided   and  voluntary controlled, infant, junior and primary schools maintained by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council and to all academies in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

For all community and voluntary controlled schools maintained by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council, the Council is the admission authority.
