Admissions Policy for 2018/2019
Hampshire County Council is the admission authority for all community and voluntary controlled primary and secondary schools. The admission arrangements are determined by the County Council, after statutory consultations.
The County Council will consider first all those applications received by the published deadline of midnight on Monday 15 January 2018. Notifications to parents offering an infant school place will be sent by the County Council on Monday 16 April 2018.
Applications made after midnight 15 January 2018 will be considered after all on-time applications have been fully processed unless exceptional circumstances merit consideration alongside on-time applications.
The published admission number (PAN) for Marlborough Infant School for 2018-2019 is 42.
For the main admission round, all on time preferences will be considered simultaneously and ranked in accordance with the admission criteria. If more than one school can offer a place, the parent’s highest stated available preference will be allocated.
Pupils reach statutory school age at the beginning of the term following their fifth birthday, but, in Hampshire, most pupils are admitted as rising fives. Parents can request that the date their child is admitted is deferred until later in the year or until the child reaches compulsory school age. Pupils will normally be admitted at the start of a school term. Parents can request that their child attends part-time until the child reaches compulsory school age. Parents of children requiring a Year R place, including that accessing co-located nursery provision, must make an application. If parents of summer born rising fives wish to defer their admission until they reach statutory school age, admission will be considered for Year 1, their appropriate year group.
