Haberdashers' Knights Primary participates in the Lewisham Local Authority (LA) In-Year Co-ordinated Admissions Scheme which allows us to work closely with the LA to offer children a place within our school should Parents/Carers wish to transfer their child to a different school during the school academic year.
Knights Primary will operate a waiting list for applications submitted for years other than the normal year of entry should the cohort be at capacity. Knights Primary will consider all such applications and if the year group applied for has a place available, admit the child unless one of the permitted reliefs applies. If more applications are received than there are places available, the oversubscription criteria shall apply. Knights Primary is a one form entry school, which means each year group has one class of 30 children. The waiting list will operate until the end of the academic year. If, at the end of the academic year parents wish their children to be considered for entry to the subsequent year group, they will be required to apply afresh.
Knights Primary participates in Lewisham LA’s In Year Fair Access Protocol and children may be prioritised over those children on the waiting list for admission under this protocol.
If you have any questions or queries regarding In-Year Admissions then please contact either Lewisham Admissions Team on 0208 314 8282 between the hours of 9am - 12pm.
