In Year Admissions in Portishead

Most of the schools in Portishead are now academies they have become their own admissions authority.  Each school is now responsible for processing In Year transfer applications for their own school and informing the applicant of the outcome and their rights.  As such any In Year transfer application for any of the Portishead schools has to be lodged directly with the school and not with North Somerset Council.  

 

It is a requirement that all own admissions authority schools notify the council for all applicants that they have either offered a place to or refused a place to.  If an applicant is refused then North Somerset Council will track the application to ensure that a school place is identified and offered.

 

To apply for an In-Year place at Trinity please complete the In Year Application Form available on this website.

Changes to the Admission Arrangements for 2018/2019 – 2019/2020

 

Following a recent change, Trinity Anglican Methodist Primary School will be applying for a variation to the admission arrangements for 2018-19 and 2019-20. 

 

This change is necessary to enable all school admission applications to be processed for in year applications for 2018-19 and for new intake applications in September 2019 in accordance with the school’s oversubscription criteria, if required.

 

This will mean changes in particular wording in the current arrangements from:

 

‘Distances will be calculated electronically using digital mapping software and Ordnance Survey ‘Nation Address Base’ coordinates and measurement will be to a minimum of three decimal places accuracy. In the case of a multi-dwelling building such as a block of flats, the same distance will apply for all occupants’.

 

to

 'Distances are calculated using North Somerset Council’s computerised system(s) which determines a direct line distance between the address point of the child’s home and the main entrance marker for the school.'
