In-Year Admissions
If a parent of a child on our roll wishes to apply for a transfer to another school, they must obtain a transfer form from the school for completion of Section 2.

The application must then be sent to the Local Authority which will process the application on the parent’s behalf. The Local Authority will confirm the outcome of the application in writing.

Transfer to Junior School

The majority of our children move on to Nether Green Junior School at the end of Year 2. Nether Green Infant School and Broomhill Infant School have linked feeder status to Nether Green Junior School. Designated feeder status does not guarantee admission to Nether Green Junior School at the point of transfer to Year 3.

1. Children in Care or previously in Care

2. Children resident in the Nether Green catchment area who have siblings at Nether Green Infant or Broomhill Infant Schools

3. Children resident in Nether Green catchment area

4. Children who do not live in the Nether Green catchment area but who will have a sibling attending Nether Green Infant or Junior or Broomhill Infant Schools.

5. All other applications.
