This is where parents move children from one school to another during the school year perhaps due to moving house. Application forms for an In Year place can be obtained from the school or via www.somerset.gov.uk/admissions
Once the forms are returned and processed the school admission officer will check to see if a place is available and contact you. If there are no places at that time the application is passed to the Local Authority who then process the next stage and will inform you of your options.
If an application has been refused in any year group, your child will be placed on a waiting list. This will be kept strictly in order of oversubscription criteria by the Local Authority, as the Admission Authority, and the child will remain on the waiting list until the end of the academic year in which the application was refused. Parents are responsible for informing the Admission Authority of any changes in their circumstances, which could affect their place on the waiting list.’
Due to the high number of applications we receive, we can only offer a visit or tour of the school if we are in a position to offer your child a place once your application is processed.
Please note that in Yeovil there are a number of Infant and Junior Schools. If your child is in Year 2 at an Infant school you cannot select a primary as your choice of transfer for Year 3 on your transfer form. You can however apply to a primary school as an In Year application. Places can only be reserved for 6 weeks or half a term in advance. This means if you want a Year 3 place to start in a September, the earliest you can apply to the school is the Monday after the Whitsun bank holiday break. This will of course be subject to available spaces in the existing Year 2 classes.
