Admissions Arrangements:

We have worked exceedingly hard to build and maintain a much-valued reputation at Palm Bay School since we opened in September 1995 and as a result, demand for places is high in each year group.

Consistent with the school’s Equality of Opportunity Policy, the school will not discriminate on the grounds of gender, sexuality, class, race, colour, creed or religion.  If no vacancy exists, the name of the applicant can be placed on a waiting list in a position according to the following Local Authority (LA) prioritised criteria:

  • Children in care, or those with statements of special needs
  • Sibling status (when the child have a brother or sister already at the school, residing at the same address)
  • Health, Social and Special Access Reasons – i.e. for children already in receipt of a Statement of Special Educational Needs (to be known as an Education, Health, Care Plan)
  • Geographical distance from the school, as the crow flies.

The 2019 – 2020 policy is below
