Applications Procedures for Reception places for September 2022

 

Parents of children born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018 are eligible to make an application for admission for their child in September 2022.

It is the responsibility of the parents to ensure that they complete the Local Authority preference form on line as well as the supplementary form from Al-Furqan Primary School.  

It is the responsibility of parents to notify school and the LA of any changes of address.

  • Completed additional Al-Furqan application form, together with supporting information required must be returned to the School office and the completed LA application form submitted online by Saturday, 15 January 2022. This is the final closing date.
  • Parents will be informed by the LA which school their child has been allocated via email on Tuesay, 19 April 2022. You do not receive a letter from Al-Furqan Primary School. If you have not been offered a place you will be placed on a waiting list produced by the Local Authority. Waiting lists for admissions will remain open until 31 December 2022 and will then be discarded. Parents may apply for their child’s name to be reinstated until the end of the academic year when the list will be discarded.
  • Should a vacancy arise, the School will contact parents with children on the waiting list in descending order.
  • The admissions process will consist of the following two key elements which will determine the offer of school places. Parents who have:
    (a) completed fully all sections of both the LA and Al-Furqan’s application forms and  provided all supporting documentary evidence as listed in the ‘notes’ to the School’s  additional application form
    (b) providing certified proof of evidence on letter headed paper from their local mosque or an Islamic organisation of the child’s ability to recite the ‘Shahada’ (Ashhadu Alla Ilaha Illa Allah Wa Ashhadu Anna Muhammadun rasulu'Llah) and explain its meaning  (according to age, aptitude and ability) as a minimum requirement to establish their faith.
  • Where applications for admissions exceed the number of places available, the following criteria (in descending order) shall apply:
    a) Children of Islamic faith who are in the care of the Local Authority (looked after children) or were previously looked after or provided with accommodation by them (e.g. children with foster parents) (Section 22 of the Children Act 1989) a certified proof of evidence on letter headed paper from their local mosque or an Islamic organisation of the child’s ability to recite the ‘Shahada’ (Ashhadu Alla Ilaha Illa Allah Wa Ashhadu Anna Muhammadun rasulu'Llah) and explain its meaning (according to age, aptitude and ability) will be required as a minimum requirement to establish their faith.
    b) Children with siblings at Al-Furqan. The Local Authority ‘Sibling’ definition has been adopted. For all siblings of Islamic faith certified proof of evidence on letter headed paper from their local mosque or an Islamic organisation of the child’s ability to recite the ‘Shahada’ (Ashhadu Alla Ilaha Illa Allah Wa Ashhadu Anna Muhammadun rasulu'Llah)

    c) Children of staff employed at Al-Furqan Primary School for two or more years or who will meet a skills shortage. For all children of staff of Islamic faith certified proof of evidence on letter headed paper from their local mosque or an Islamic organisation of the child’s ability to recite the ‘Shahada’ (Ashhadu Alla Ilaha Illa Allah Wa Ashhadu Anna Muhammadun rasulu'Llah)
    d) For all other children of Islamic faith certified proof of evidence on letter headed paper from their local mosque or an Islamic organisation of the child’s ability to recite the ‘Shahada’ (Ashhadu Alla Ilaha Illa Allah Wa Ashhadu Anna Muhammadun rasulu'Llah)
    e) All other children in the case of the Local Authority or were previously looked after.
    f) All other children
    The criterion listed above reflects the admissions for the School and will be applied fairly and objectively in the offer of School places. In case of oversubscriptions, priority will be given to those children, at the time of application, residing closest to the School. The Local Authority’s ‘Distance’ definition has been adopted. For those children who spend part of the week with one carer and part with another the Local Authority’s ‘Shared Responsibility’ definition has been adopted.
  • Ninety places are available for children in the Reception class for September 2022.
  • Parents whose children have not been offered a place have the right to appeal.  Appeals should be made to Admissions and Pupil Placements Service no later than 18 May 2022.
