Important Information For Parents Concerning In Year School Admissions

We welcome applications from parents for their children to join our school at any time. If the school place you are seeking for your child is required during the school year, you must apply directly through Borough of Poole's Website.

Parents are asked to note the following information regarding School Admission Arrangements:

Merley First School is a member of the Wimborne Academy Trust partnership of schools, for which the Admission Authority is the ‘Academy Trust’. This is a vibrant and exciting family of schools, driven to provide high quality education and to fully support the local and wider community.

The 2016/17 and 2017/18 Admissions Arrangements were agreed before the school converted to academy status and so must apply until such time that the Academy Trust reviews admission arrangements and proposes new procedure.

The Academy Trust is currently considering the introduction of revised admission arrangements for the 2018/19 school year that more appropriately meet the needs of the member schools and their communities. You are asked to look out for future announcements about these proposals on this website and in the local press.

A full public consultation is required before altered admission arrangements can be implemented and you will be encouraged to comment during the consultation period, should the proposals be of interest to you and your family.
