Secondary Admissions September 2021

The online application process for applying to secondary school for Parents and Carers of Year 6 pupils can appear a bit daunting. If you need any advice or guidance, please feel free to contact me at school. This year, three additional lines for more schools to be listed as preferences have been added, to allow for the fact that the results of Trafford’s grammar school entrance tests will not be published in time for the closing date of the Common Admission Form, which is 31st October 2020. Full details are found here: https://www.trafford.gov.uk/residents/schools/school-admissions/Admissions.aspx Please make sure you list several options in order of preference, rather than “putting all your eggs in one basket”! Do ask in good time if you are not sure about how to list your preferences, ensuring that you do not miss the deadline, as this would result in your application being put to the back of the queue, after secondary school places had been allocated to those people who submitted on time.

In the event of a total school closure.

Dear Parents At present the school is open only to those children of key workers who have been offered a place, to enable parents who are eligible to continue with their essential work. If the situation worsens and this school has to close completely, there is a link on the Trafford Council website to support parents who require assistance to locate a different provision following a school closure.

Coronavirus Update

As the possibility of schools being forced to close due to the current situation increases, we remain open for now, in line with guidance from the DfE and Public Health England. Never have hands been washed so often in school! We are doing our best to keep the children calm and to continue life as normal as far as possible. However, we are isolating any children who appear to develop flu-like symptoms of a continuous cough and high temperature and are asking parents to collect them and keep them off as a precaution, for 14 days, which will take us up to the Easter holidays. Staff are in the process of preparing materials to support learning at home, which will be sent home in the event of a planned school closure. Additional material and links to a range of useful educational websites are being prepared and will be available shortly on the relevant Year group pages of the school’s website. Thanks for your continued...
