How do I appeal if I am not offered a place?
The law states that infant classes must be limited to a maximum of 30 children which has an impact on how an appeal is considered. An appeal for a Reception place can only be upheld in very limited circumstances.

There are three circumstances which an appeal panel can uphold an appeal for a school; if an appeal does not satisfy any of these conditions then it cannot be upheld.

These conditions are:

• the child would have been offered a place if the admission arrangements had been properly implemented

• the child would have been offered a place if the arrangements had not been contrary to mandatory provisions in the School Admissions Code and the School Standards and Framework Act 1998, and/or

• the decision to refuse admission was not one which a reasonable admission authority would have made in the circumstances of the case. Unreasonable in this sense means irrational - a decision which was 'perverse in the light of the admissions arrangements'.

The Crescent is next door to The BRIT School will children with evidence creative talent i.e. music, art, dance or drama be prioritised for admission?

Will it help them to get in if they have been to Selhurst Children's Centre?

If they attend The Crescent Primary will they be guaranteed a place at The BRIT School when they are 14 years old?
No. The BRIT School has its own Admissions Policy.

I have a child in another school but would like them to move to The Crescent, how can I apply?
If you are seeking a place at The Crescent you must contact Croydon Admissions team who hold our waiting list. They will be able to inform you if there are any places available.

How do I apply for a place for Reception?
If your child was born between 1st September 2015 and 31st August 2016 they will be eligible to start school in September 2020.

Information on the admissions process is on the Croydon Council website.
