At present a maximum of 42 children can be admitted to each year group. In the event of more applications being received than the admission allows, the Local Education Authority, in consultation with the Governing Body, will allocate available places. This allocation will be based upon the admission criteria and priority order as detailed in the L.E.A.’s “Schools Admissions Codes and regulations” document. These criteria relate to medical reasons, sibling links and distance as a reason for over-subscribed applications being considered.
A full copy of the admissions criteria can be obtained on request from the school. Parents of children who cannot be admitted have the right of appeal to an Appeals Committee against the decision not to admit their child.
Parents are welcome to visit the school when considering whether to apply for admission for their child, preferably bringing their child with them to view the school also. Our Admissions Policy has been submitted below for you to download or view online.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
At Annfield Plain Junior School we look at the educational needs of a pupil with disabilities and special needs. In liaison with all other professionals involved with the pupil we plan a comprehensive learning package, which will allow for measurable learning opportunities to be put in place. This means that the pupil and all adults involved in supporting that pupil will meet to plan the educational provision best suited to the needs of the individual student. At all times we will work closely with parents to ensure that their child receives the very best educational experience that Annfield Plain Junior School can offer.
Annfield Plain Junior School consists of two buildings, both of which have steps into the buildings. Therefore, there are access limitations to both buildings. However, at Annfield Plain Junior School we welcome any further suggestions as to how we could improve our accessibility to all, whatever the disability. Our School Accessibility Policy may be viewed in our School Policies page of our website.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
