APPLYING FOR SCHOOL PLACES

For Lancashire resident families who will require a primary or secondary place in September 2021 the means of application is via Lancashire’s online system at: www.lancashire.gov.uk/schools

This will go live from 1 September 2020

It is quick and easy to use and offers an email receipt of all submitted applications. Please ensure that you hit the “submit” button when you are ready to send in your completed online application. You must apply even if you already have siblings at your preferred school or academy. If you live in Lancashire you can include out of area preferences on your online application.

If you have submitted and received an email acknowledgment of an online application you can log back onto the system during the application period to view this. If however, you go back into your original application this may have been over written (it definitely will if you make any changes). It will then no longer be valid. This applies for all changes, even very minor ones e.g. hyphens, apostrophes and typo corrections.

To ensure that your online application remains valid you are therefore strongly advised to press the re-submit button if you revisit the system at any time during the application period (whether or not changes were made). You should then receive a further confirmation email.

Singleton CE Primary School Determined Admission Arrangements 2021

Due to Covid-19 the school has applied for a variation to our admissions arrangements in relation to a faith reference for the 2021 admissions.  We are still waiting for this to be agreed but the variation to the arrangement would be as follows:

“In the event that during the period specified for attendance at worship the church has been closed for public worship and has not provided alternative premises for that worship, the requirements of these admissions arrangements in relation to attendance will only apply to the period when the church or alternative premises have been available for public worship”.
