Admissions Policy

The school makes decisions about admissions following our Admissions Policy which is available in the downloads area of this page.

In-Year Admissions

An in-year admission means admission to a current year group for a child who is already attending school but wishes to change schools due to relocation or a change in circumstances. Filton Avenue Primary School manages its own in-year admissions so if you wish to apply for an in-year place, please contact the school office directly, alternatively you can download the PDF form and bring it into the school office. Your child will normally already be attending or have a place at a school so please speak with your current headteacher prior to making an in-year admission application.
