What you need to do
Please complete an In-Year Application form for each child. Before you fill out the form we suggest you find out more about the schools by looking at their websites and/or visiting schools. You can also contact Family Connect on 01952 385385.
You are allowed to put preferences for up to 3 schools or academies. If you want to apply for schools in other authorities, such as Shropshire or Staffordshire or further afield, these should be induded on your Telford form. Details of your application will then be forwarded to the appropriate Local Authority. You don’t have to complete a form for another Local Authority.
Please note that applications to Thomas Telford School should not be included on this form. To apply for a place at Thomas Telford you will need to complete a separate application form obtained direct from the school.
The order of the preferences that you put on your form is very important. We will always offer you the highest possible preference, so you should put your true preference first. If we can’t offer a place at your first preference school we will move on to look at the second preference and so on. Places will be allocated according to the published admission criteria for individual schools. If your application is for a faith school or a grammar school you may also be asked to provide other information so that your application can be considered.
You should also consider how you will get your child to and from school. There is more detailed information on home to school transport available on the council’s website. However, you should note that Telford & Wrekin council only provided support for eligible pupils to travel to their designated (or catchment) area school in particular sets of circumstances. If your preference is for a school other than your nearest or catchment area school you are likely to be responsible for getting your child(ren) to and from school.
