How to Apply for a School Place at Fryent Primary School

Admissions Procedures for 2024- 2025

As a maintained school all admissions for children in Reception through to year 6 are made through the local authority.

When there are more applications for Brent community schools than there are places available, pupils are offered places according to the oversubscription criteria listed below. Children with special educational needs (SEN) who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) have priority over other applicants for admission to the school named on their plan. Read more about the school application process for children with SEN.

The oversubscription criteria for entry to Brent community schools in 2024/25 are:

1. Looked after or previously looked after children
A looked after child or a previously looked after child, including those children who appear to have been in state care outside of England and ceased to be in state care as a result of being adopted.

2. Children attending infant school
Children attending an infant school on the same site as a junior school (for applications to Mount Stewart and Roe Green junior schools only).

3. Medical or social needs
Exceptional circumstances to do with significant medical needs and/or social needs which necessitate a child's placement at one particular school.

4. Children of staff
Children whose parent is a member of staff who has been employed at the school for two or more years at the time of application or has been recruited to fill a vacancy for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage.

5. Siblings
Brothers or sisters of a child who attends the school, or an infant or junior school on the same or adjoining site, living in the catchment area of the school and who will continue to do so on the date of admission.

6. All other applicants
Tie break

Within each criterion priority will be given to applicants living nearest to the school.

The distance from home to school will be measured by straight-line, from a point in the property to a point in the school determined by the grid references set by the Ordnance Survey.

The measuring system is an integral part of the admission software, uses Ordnance Survey maps and the LLPG (Local Land Property Gazetteer) and is accurate to 1 metre.

Catchment areas
Catchment areas only apply for in-year admissions to community school during the 2023/24 academic year and have been removed from admission arrangements from 2024/25. A catchment area is the defined neighbourhood in which the school is located. It is generally bounded by major roads and/or railway/tube. Read more about catchment areas for Brent schools.
