If your child was born between 1 September 2013 and 31 August 2014, your child is due to start primary school in September 2018. Our pupil admission number (PAN) is 60; 20 places are allocated for church membership and are applied for using the church supplementary form (see attachment below) and the remaining 40 are allocated as per our admissions criteria as stipulated in our Admissions Policy, attached below.
The admission applications for reception places 2018-19 are now open and you can apply online using the eAdmissions website. The applications process ends on Monday 15th January 2018 at 11.59pm - you must ensure that online applications, alongside any additional supporting information are received by this date and time.
If you are applying for a place at St James' under the church criteria:
Complete the Supplementary Form (see attachment at the bottom of this page) and return it
TO THE SCHOOL by Friday 8th December 2017 at 12.00 midday.
Failure to return this form will result in any application being considered under the 'non-church' criteria.
Ensure that you have a copy of the admission policy prior to completing the Common Application Form available from your home Local Authority and name this school on that form.
You will receive an email after 5.00pm on Monday 16th April 2018 which will provide information on what to do next. You'll also be able to view the outcome of your application in the evening on eAdmissions website.

Applications which are received for places for year groups other than for Reception are subject to the school Admissions Policy. If there is no vacancy, applicants are put on a waiting list. The Supplementary Form is only necessary if you are applying for a Church place.
If you are applying for a place and your child attends another Southwark school you must complete an in-year transfer form (see below) and have it stamped and signed by their current school and leave it at either site for the attention of Mrs. Brenta, who will contact you should a place become available or if we need further information.
Please read the flow chart from Southwark if you are applying for an in-year transfer which explains the procedure.
