Admission Appeals E-Form
If you wish to appeal an admission case please follow the link below.
Ribbleton Avenue Infant School follows the Local Authority Admissions Procedure. To find out about admissions arrangements or to apply for a school place click here.
When a school is oversubscribed on parental preference, the following priorities apply in order:
1. Looked After Children and those who have been Previously Looked After.
2. Children for whom the Local Authority accepts that there are exceptional medical, social or welfare reasons which are directly relevant to the school concerned
3. Children with older brothers and sisters attending the school where the younger child will start
4. Remaining places are allocated according to where a child lives. Those living nearest to the preferred school by a straight line (radial) measure will have priority.
Each year group has an admission number of 70 pupils. Please contact us to arrange a visit if you are interested in your child joining our school.
Nursery: If you would like a Nursery place the application form is available from the school office. We offer morning sessions, afternoon sessions and a limited number of 30 hour places.
Reception: Places are allocated through the Local Authority. Should you be unsuccessful in your request for a place for a September start date with us at Ribbleton Avenue Infant School, please contact Lancashire County Council with regards to the appeal process.
In-Year Admissions - All school places are located through the Local Authority. School cannot offer places.
Along with the local schools in the area we have a policy of no pupil movement during term time unless pupils have moved into the area and can no longer feasibly attend their previous school.
We look forward to meeting you!
Please click on the link below to watch a short video on applying for a Reception place. Please be aware that you must apply online on the Lancashire County Council's website. If your child is already in our Nursery or have a sibling in our school, this DOES NOT give you an automatic place in our Reception class.
