 Hempland Primary Academy 2019/20 New Starter Open Evenings

Children with Crayons

We will be holding two meetings for parents as follows:

6.00 - 7.00pm on Wednesday 17 October 2018
5.30 - 6.30pm on Tuesday 23 October 2018

These meetings will provide you with lots of information about our school, our values and vision for all our pupils, a chance to look around and view our facilities and have the opportunity to meet with our Headteacher and staff from our Early Years’ classes. We have arranged for two meetings, which are intended for adults only, thereby giving the option for each parent to attend one of the sessions should you have difficulty arranging childcare.

If you would like to attend one of the above meetings could you please contact the school to book a place either via email to or by telephoning the school office on 01904 555495. Please advise which meeting you would like to attend and provide your name, address, a contact telephone number and the name and date of birth of your child.

The application process opened on 12 September 2018 and applications must be submitted to the Local Authority by 15 January 2019.

We do hope you are able to join us and look forward to meeting you.


Admission Arrangements 2020/21 entry

Between 08 October and 07 December 2018 all admissions authorities for schools in York jointly conducted a consultation on admission arrangements for the admissions rounds for entry in September 2020.

The closing date for comments was 07 December 2018. After considering any comments received, the governing body/MAT board will, in its role as an admission authority, then formally set (‘determine’) these arrangements. This will happen by no later than 28 February 2019.
