Admissions

Lyndhurst Primary School is a large school for pupils aged 3-11. Our Academy is part of the Focus-Trust and caters for 480 pupils. We are a vibrant and inclusive community, and our skilled and dedicated staff work hard to provide a wide range of educational experiences for the children in a safe and stimulating environment.

Focus Academy Trust is the overall admissions authority for the Academy with decision making delegated to the Academy’s Governing Body.

The Academy is part of the co-ordinated admissions arrangements operated by Oldham Council (the Local Authority) and the Local Fair Access Protocol. The Local Authority co-ordinates admissions, allocates places to the Academy and informs families.

The Academy will comply with the School Admissions Code and the School Admission Appeal Code. This policy is based on the current codes but will be reviewed in the light of any future changes in the law.

An Independent Appeals Panel hears any appeals from parents whose child has not been allocated a place at Lyndhurst Primary School, and who lodges an appeal in accordance with the procedure specified by the Local Authority.
