Applying to Mellis Primary School.

General Information

Mellis has a 'PAN' (Published Admission Number) limit of 26 pupils per year group and is generally oversubscribed. We are always very pleased indeed to show prospective parents and pupils around the school, so please do not hesitate to contact us to arrange an appointment. We feel that (as far as possible) it is best to visit during school hours so that visitors can get a first hand experience of the atmosphere and approach of the school!

As an academy, admissions into the School are handled in two different ways depending on the age of the child.

1)  'Normal Year of Entry' Applications. This covers children looking to start in Reception for the next academic year. For entry September 2018, this covers children born between 1st September 2013 through to August 21st 2014. These applications must be made to the local authority.  Please contact them on 0845 600 0981 or click here to go to Suffolk County Council webpage on school admissions  This has details on how and when to apply using the CAF1 form. Applications must reach the Local Authority by 15th January 2018. Late applications will be ranked according to the oversubscription procedures noted below. Decision letters are issued by 16th April 2018.

2) 'In Year' Applications. This covers any child looking to come to the School during an existing academic year. Parents will need to request an 'ADM1' application form. As an academy, the Governor Admissions Panel will review each application as per the School's admission policy (see left) and aim to inform parents of the decision within five school days.

What happens if there are more applications than placed in a given Year Group?

As a School of the Ipswich and St Edmundsbury Diocesan Multi-Academy Trust our oversubscription procedures are the sames as those set by the Local Authority. To view these please look at the end of the School's admissions policy.

Please do not hesitate to contact the School with any queries.
