Admission to Other Year Groups

In-year transfers
You will need to do this if you:

  • Want to transfer your child from their current school to Northowram Primary School.
  • Need a school place at any time other than transferring from nursery to primary or primary to secondary.

Fair Access Protocol
Each local authority must have a fair access protocol, agreed with a majority of schools in its area. This is to make sure that (outside the normal admissions round): Unplaced children, especially the most vulnerable are offered a place at a suitable school as quickly as possible. For more details, please read the Calderdale Fair Access Protocol for Primary Schools
