Applications for places in Reception should be made on London Borough of Croydon’s Common Online Application Form.

In-Year Applications

If you are looking for a place in Harris Primary Academy Purley Way because you have recently moved into the area, or your child is at another primary school and you feel that a change of school would benefit their education you are entitled to apply for a school place. 

Since September 2013, the law allows you to apply directly to a school or Academy instead of the Local Authority. 

Please contact Admissions at the Academy on 020 38721970 or info@harrisprimarypurleyway.org.uk to request an HPAPW In-year Admission Form. 

Please note that there is no guarantee that a place will be available, but you have the right of appeal if you are refused a place.

For Parents/Carers who wish to Appeal

Parents / Carers wishing to appeal against the Academy’s decision on admissions, for any year group, should contact the Academy and request an Appeal Form stating the reason for the appeal, based on the published Admissions Criteria.

Completed forms should be sent to the Clerk to the Appeal Panel at:

Harris Primary Academy Purley Way, 4th Floor Norfolk House, Wellesley Road. Croydon. CR0 1LH

The appeals will be heard, in private, by an Independent appeal Panel. The Clerk to the Appeal Panel will make an appointment within a reasonable time, Appeals may be made in English or the Parents’/ Carers’ first language.

  • Only one appeal per application is allowed.
  • Appeals are conducted in person, and you may bring a friend.

    The Appeal Hearing

    The Academy will arrange for an Independent Appeals Panel to consider the Academy's reasons for refusal and your reasons for wanting to attend the Academy.  

    The Panel will consist of 3 people (2 will have education experience and one will be an independent person with no education experience).

    The Panel will consider the case put forward by you and the Academy. They must consider the admission arrangements for the Academy and the reasons why you want to attend that particular school.  The Panel must exercise its discretion by balancing the weight of your argument (for wanting to attend) against the Academy’s reasons for refusal i.e. the prejudice that one more student would cause to the education of the students already offered and the Health and Safety of all the students already attending the Academy, also taking into account the Academy's published admission arrangements.  

    The decision of the Independent Appeals Panel is binding on the admissions authority and the Parents.

     

    If you have any questions regarding admissions, please contact Donna Neblett:
