Appeals

If you are unhappy that you did not receive an offer of a school place at Harris Primary Academy Purley Way, you have the right to lodge an independent appeal with us.

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, 47 Propeller Crescent, Waddon, Surrey, CR0 4FE.

 All appeals will be heard within 40 school days of the deadline for lodging appeals.

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.


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. 

You can complete our 'In-year Admission Form' electronically by clicking here. 

Please note that there is no guarantee that a place will be available but completing this form will mean you will be offered a place or be added to our waiting list.

If you are interested in joining our academy please email info@harrisprimarypurleyway.org.uk to book a one to one tour of the school.


If you have any questions regarding admissions, please contact our Admissions Officer.
