Admission Policy for Oatlands Infant School

How to apply  

Parents and carers may apply at any time for an in-year school place.  Application forms are provided and processed by North Yorkshire Council:  

You can apply for a place online using the local authority in-year application form at:

Changing schools and in-year applications | North Yorkshire Council 

If you have moved to a new house, please upload evidence of the move with the online application.  

Parents and carers will be notified in writing by North Yorkshire Council of the school’s decision. This will be within 15 school days of your in-year application being received.   

If the school is unable to offer a place, your child’s name will automatically be added to the school’s waiting list, which will be kept open until the end of December 2023. Where a place becomes available, this will be offered from the waiting list, based on the oversubscription criteria within the school’s admissions policy

In-year applications (1 September 2023 to 31 August 2024) 

If you would like to change schools, or if you are moving into the area for example, you can apply for a school transfer, by making an in-year application. 

An in-year application is for the admission of a child to Y3 (juniors)  if submitted on or after the first day of the first school term of the admission year; or it is for the admission of a child to any other age group at any time. 

Red Kite Learning Trust and its Harrogate schools are part of the North Yorkshire Council co-ordinated in-year admissions scheme. 


Appeals Procedure

If your in-year application is unsuccessful, you will have the right of appeal against the school’s decision.  

Appeals are arranged by North Yorkshire Council and you can find the appeal form and information at:

Appeal for a school place | North Yorkshire Council 

The appeal panel is independent of the school and council and the decision is legally binding.  Appeals against a decision for an in-year application can be submitted at any time during the school year.
