Getting a place for your child
Getting a place for your child in the academy
The Academies Enterprise Trust is the Admissions Authority for the academy (despite what it says in the official documents)
Going to a new school is a very important step for your child. If you would like a visit and tour of the academy to help you in your decison process, please do contact us to arrange this, you will be very welcome. We want to make the process of applying for an academy place as easy as possible for all parents and carers. You can apply online here for your child's admission (at the moment, online applications can only be made for children starting primary or secondary school for the first time). .
Applications for a September reception place at Meadstead Primary Academy should be made to Barnsley Local Authority under their coordinated admission scheme. Places for in-year admissions should also be made direct to Barnsley Local Authority. They will send you an admissions form, once this document has been completed, please return to them and they will coordinate a place for you. You are welcome to contact the school but we cannot offer you a place directly. For information regarding the Barnsley Local Authority admissions process, follow this link https://www.barnsley.gov.uk/services/school-admissions-and-transfers where various documents and guidance are available.
