Admissions to Gooseacre Primary Academy
The Academy has adopted the local authority’s policy for admissions and applications for places at Gooseacre Primary Academy will be made in accordance with the ‘Co- ordinated Admission Arrangements’ which forms part of the Local Authority’s (LA) published admission arrangements.
Applications must be made on the common application form (CAF) which is provided by the Local Authority. Full details can be found by clicking the following link:- Primary school places – Barnsley Council Online.
Any parent wishing to consider Gooseacre Primary Academy for their child can contact the Academy for an appointment with the head teacher or deputy to look around.
Parents / carers, if they wish, have the right of appeal to an independent appeal panel if they are dissatisfied with an admissions decision of the Academy. The appeal panel will be independent of the Academy. The arrangements for appeals will be in line with the School Admission Appeals Code published by the Department for Education. The decision of the panel is binding on all parties.
To request an Appeal Form please Contact the Academy.
Parents can only appeal once for any academic year unless there has been a change in circumstances relevant to the application.
