Appeals 2021

Where a child has been refused admission to the School the parent has the right to appeal against that decision.

Parents may appeal using the form below and returning to the school. Appeals will be heard by an Appeals Committee, Clerks Associates UK, who act independently of the Governors in making their decisions. 

Given the current restrictions, there will be a change to the way the appeals are heard in line with Department of Education guidelines. 

All our appeals are heard by an Independent Panel and they will be doing this as follows:

  • Teleconferencing – no specialist equipment is required other than a telephone.
  • Videoconferencing – using an appropriate secure video conferencing software
  • In writing based on written submissions only – should the occasion arise when the panel requires clarification on any point(s), the clerk will contact both parties via video/telephone conferencing call. We will ensure that appellants are informed as appropriate.

If you wish to appeal please complete the Notice of Admission Appeal and return to the school. 

 

Admission to Reach Academy Feltham is co-ordinated by the London Borough of Hounslow. Applications for places at the school should be made using the Common Application Form (CAF). Applications for ‘in-year’ admissions (once the school year has started) should be made to London Borough of Hounslow.

Reach Academy Feltham have different admissions policies to other schools in the borough. This have been subject to consultation and can be reviewed in the policies set out below. Please note that the admissions policy states that our priority postcode is the TW13 and TW14 area,  there was a previous typing aberration which stated the incorrect postcode of TW15 (error) for our admissions area - this policy was removed from the website immediately.

Pupil Premium & Early Years Premium Admissions Criteria

In order to ensure a diverse intake that reflects the balance of our community, we allocate a proportion of places to pupils eligible for the pupil premium at the closing date of applications in Secondary and Primary respectively. The proportion, 27% or 16 out of our 60 places, reflects the proportions in the local community.

If we receive applications that meet these criteria from more than 27% of places available, then places will be allocated in line with the over-subscription criteria set out in our admissions policy.

To be eligible parents must be receiving either one of the following:

  • Income Support;
  • Income-based Job Seeker’s Allowance;
  • Employment & Support Allowance (must be Income Related and not Contribution Based);
  • Child Tax Credit with no Working Tax Credit and where household income is less than £16,190; or
  • For their child to be in receipt of the Pupil Premium at the time of application.

Please complete the form below if you wish your child’s application to be considered under this criteria.  Forms may also be collected from the school office.

Completing this form on its own does not constitute an application to Reach Academy Feltham. All parents wishing to apply must complete the Common Application Form (CAF).
