Admissions

We would welcome you applying for a place at our school.  To do this you must follow the correct process for your child’s age as detailed below.

For information on starting primary school please follow the link below

Starting Primary School

Fair Access

The law requires that each local authority must have a Fair Access Protocol (FAP), agreed with the majority of schools in its area to ensure that for In Year admissions unplaced children, especially the most vulnerable, are offered a place at a suitable school as quickly as possible.  In agreeing a protocol, the local authority must ensure that no school - including those with available places - is asked to take a disproportionate number of children who have been excluded from other schools, or who have challenging behaviour.  Langdon Academy has signed up to the LB Newham’s Fair Access Protocol.

LBN Fair Access Protocol

Normal Admissions

If your child was born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016, you will need to apply for a reception class place in an infant or primary school for September 2020. 

If your child lives in Newham you will need to apply via London Borough of Newham. But if your child lives outside Newham, but you want him or her to go to school in Newham, you will need to apply through the local authority in the borough you live in.

Remember, you must always apply for a place, even if your child:

  • Already attends the nursery of your preferred school

OR

  • They have a brother or sister who attends the schools

If your child was born between 1 September 2008 and 31 August 2009, you will need to apply for a secondary school place for September 2020.

We recommend that the families of all of our year 6 pupils attend as many of the Open Days and Open Evening at the schools across Newham before making a decision what schools to name as a preference.
