Re Reception Admissions
On April 16th, national offer day, families who have applied for a school place for their reception aged child will find out which school they have been allocated. Royal Wharf Primary School has been a popular choice but it is likely that we will have some spare places still available after April 16th. If you didn’t know about the school and would now like to apply you will need to obtain a paper application form. This is available below for you to print out or from our office at Britannia Village Primary School. You cannot apply for this school online until next year. The school office will re-open after the Easter break on April 23rd. Completed application forms should be returned to the Britannia Village office and we will forward them on to pupil services for processing.There is further information about the new school on this website. You might also like to visit the trust's open school, Britannia Village Primary. This can be arranged by contacting the office on 02075115412.
If you have any other queries regarding reception admissions please contact us by email, telephone or in person and we will do our best to help.

Determined Admission Arrangements - September 2020
The law requires that all schools must have admission arrangements that clearly set out how children will be admitted, including the criteria that will be applied if there are more applications than places at the school. Admission arrangements are determined by admission authorities.
All admission authorities must determine (i.e. formally agree) admission arrangements annually, even if they have not changed from previous years and a consultation has not been required. Admission authorities must determine admission arrangements for entry in September 2020, by 28 February 2019. Britannia Education Trust is the admission authority for Royal Wharf Primary School and we have formally agreed to adopt the LB Newham’s admission arrangements for September 2020.
For any proposed changes to the existing determined arrangements a formal consultation must take place and must be for a minimum of 6 weeks and must take place between 1 October and 31 January of the school year before those arrangements are to apply. For example: for arrangements which are to apply to applications in 2019 (entry in September 2020), consultation must be completed by 31 January 2019. This consultation period allows parents, other schools, religious authorities and the local community to raise any concerns about proposed arrangements. We did not propose any changes for 2020 as our changes were made and consulted upon for entry in September 2019
Our Determined Arrangements for the school year starting in September 2020 are in the PDF below.
You can object to these arrangements or the arrangements of any school by referring to the Office of the Schools Adjudicator. Objections to admission arrangements for entry in September 2020 must be referred to the Adjudicator by 15 May 2019. Any decision of the Adjudicator must be acted on by the admission authority and admission arrangements amended accordingly.
