Years 1-6 Admissions and how to apply

How to apply for year groups other than Reception, or for in year admissions.

A parent can make an application to The Coppice Primary School at any time, however places can only be allocated in infants up to the limit of 30, as set by the Infant Class Size Legislation.

In Juniors, a place is only offered where admitting the child does not prejudice the efficient provision of education or use of resources.

All parents wishing to apply to The Coppice Primary School will need to complete the Worcestershire County Council Common Application (CA1) online form, which can found by clicking the below link

CA1 form for Worcestershire Local Authority

and return it to Worcestershire School Admissions Team. On receipt of the application Worcestershire School Admissions Team will consult with The Coppice Primary School and let parents know if an offer can be made, normally within ten school days of receiving the application.

Each application will be assessed in accordance with the admissions criteria , a copy of which can be found by clicking the below link


If an offer cannot be made, parents have the right to appeal. All appeals must be made in writing to the Governing Body of The Coppice Primary School within 14 days of receipt of notification. Appellants will receive at least ten school days notice of their appeal hearing date and wherever possible, decisions letters will be sent within five school days of the hearing.

The Coppice Primary School operates a waiting list for any oversubscribed year group following the same admissions criteria as mentioned above and it would be at this point that parents can ask their child to be added.

As places arise, the school will contact parents, according to the priority on the list, to allocate the place. Should the place no longer be required, the place will be allocated to the next name on the priority list.

Please note places on the waiting list can change as new people join and others leave thus changing the priority of a child.
