Gusford is an academy which is part of the Active Learning Trust and therefore follows the Active Learning Trust Admissions Policy which can be downloaded below.

Applying for a Reception Place

Applications for a September 2024 reception place close on Monday 15th January 2024. These applications need to be made online via Suffolk County Council at www.suffolk.gov.uk/admissions for a school place.

If you applied online before the deadline you will receive an email with details of your school offer on Tuesday 16th April 2024.

You are also welcome to ring the school or contact Mr Tapley directly at Mr.Tapley@gusfordprimary.net to make an appointment and arrange a visit to the school.

 


Application form for an 'in-year' admission

Suffolk County Council do not co-ordinate in-year applications. Parents who wish to make an in-year application to an academy need to apply to that school directly. Please collect an 'in-year' application form from our school office. You are also welcome to ring the school or contact Mr Tapley directly at Mr.Tapley@gusfordprimary.net to make an appointment and arrange a visit to the school.


Year 6 applying for a Secondary school place

Applications for a September 2024 Year 7 Secondary school place close on Tuesday 31st October 2023. The LA sends all Suffolk parents and carers a single offer of a place on Friday 1 March 2024 and notifies schools accordingly. It will be assumed that parents and carers have accepted the school offered, unless they notify the LA in writing by Friday 15 March 2024.


Appeals

As part of the funding agreements, The Active Learning Trust is required to comply with the School Admissions Appeals Code.    In the event of your application being unsuccessful all admission appeals should be referred to the ALT Central Office, and appeal hearings will be organised where appropriate.  All letters refusing admission will give details of how to appeal the decision.
