Admissions Policies

Year 2 to Year 3 Transition (For September 2021)


When do I apply for a 2021 Year 3 place at South Farnborough Junior School?

Applications for Year 3 admissions open on 1st November 2020.  

The deadline for submitting your application is 15th January 2021.

The national notification date for on-time applications is 16th April.

For more information on the application process please visit the Hampshire website. 


Can we visit South Farnborough Junior School before applying? 

Due to current lockdown measures, some of these planned events may, unfortunately, be unable to take place. We will keep this page updated with the most up to date information as soon as we have it.

We usually have two events that you can attend in the Autumn Term and we would encourage you to visit during these times and get a feel for the school before you apply. 

  • On (DATE TBC), we will be hosting an Open Evening for parents/carers only.  
  • During the week (DATES TBC), we will be holding an Open Week for parents/carers and, if you wish to bring them, your children.  This visit would be during the school day, giving you an opportunity to see our school in action.  Your tour will be guided by our Year 6 children who will be very keen to show off their school and answer any questions you may have. Each tour lasts about 20 minutes and local infant schools are aware they are taking place.  In order to minimise disruption to our children, we ask that you please try and visit during this week as we may not be able to accommodate you on other dates. 


How is the transition managed?

Due to current lockdown measures, some of these planned events may, unfortunately, be unable to take place. We will keep this page updated with the most up to date information as soon as we have it.

  • Children are invited for a tour during our Open Week in November. 
  • Staff visit the children at their infant schools to tell them a little bit about South Farnborough and answer any questions they may have. 
  • Induction day where Year 2 children spend the day in their new classes with their new teacher.
  • A meeting between Year 2 and Year 3 teachers to share relevant information regarding the children e.g. strengths and areas for development.
  • Special Educational Needs meeting between the SENDCo of each school to ensure continued support.
  • Parents Evening in the Summer Term – see your child’s new classroom, meet their teacher, purchase uniform and find out information about the school.
  • An additional Parent's Evening held in September to discuss the curriculum your child will be covering in Year 3 as well as tips on how you can support them as they start KS2.

How do I apply for an in-year admission? 

An in-year admission is when a child needs an immediate school place during the school year.

There are two main reasons for this. You might be moving house or unhappy with your child’s current school.


You can apply for an in-year place up to four weeks before the place is needed. Exceptionally, parents seeking an in-year place starting in September 2021 can apply from May 2021. These applications will be considered from June 2021 (exact date TBC).


To make an application, you may do so online via the Hampshire County Council website or contact the school for a paper copy, applications will then be processed by County admissions.  


Once received by the school, you will be notified in writing of the outcome and either be offered a place if there is one available or placed on a waiting list.  



School Uniform

It is our school policy that all children wear school uniform.  We have high standards in appearance and parents whose children join our school, are expected to adhere to our uniform list.
