Admissions to St James’ C of E Junior School (Year 3 to Year 6)
The London Borough of Newham is the Admission Authority for the school, they organise all admissions centrally. Application forms are available online or through contacting the council 020 8430 2000.
All admission authorities must determine (i.e. formally agree) admission arrangements annually, even if they have not changed from previous years and a consultation has not been required. Admission authorities must determine admission arrangements for entry in September 2020, by 28 February 2019. The LB Newham is the admission authority for all maintained schools located in Newham with the exception of some faith schools who are their own admission authorities. St James’ Church of England Junior School is a LB Newham maintained school meaning we must use their admission arrangements.
For any proposed changes to the existing determined arrangements a formal consultation must take place and must be for a minimum of 6 weeks and must take place between 1 October and 31 January of the school year before those arrangements are to apply. For example: for arrangements which are to apply to applications in 2019 (entry in September 2020), consultation must be completed by 31 January 2019. This consultation period allows parents, other schools, religious authorities and the local community to raise any concerns about proposed arrangements. We did not propose any changes for 2020 as our changes were made and consulted upon for entry in September 2019.
