Children are admitted to school in the September of the academic year in which they are five. This admissions process is at present organised by the local authority and school has no ownership of it.
The Local Education Authority determine how many pupils can be admitted in each school – the Pupil Admission Number. This varies from school to school; for Ravenswood the number is 90 in each year group.
If a year group is full and parents wish their child to be admitted, they can appeal to the Appeals Panel at the Civic Centre – tel: 2787878 and ask for ‘school admissions’.
