Applying for a place for your child in September 2016
The governors of Paxton Academy (Paxton Academy Trust) are responsible for pupil admissions and are committed to providing an excellent education for a fully comprehensive, non-selective intake. The Admissions policy is written to reflect the inclusiveness of our Academy in meeting the diverse needs of children in the local community. All applications will be treated on merit, and in a sensitive manner. A child’s level of ability is irrelevant to the school’s Admissions policy, as are any special needs the child may have.
The Academy will provide for the admission of all children in the September following their fourth birthday.
The application process for admissions is co-ordinated by the Local Authority (LA). The closing date for applications for September 2016 is 15 January 2016. Parents/carers have up to April 30 to confirm their offer. Up to this point changes in preference can be made via Croydon council.
