On the 18th April 2016, Blackpool & Lancashire Local Authorities will inform parents of the primary school their child has been allocated in September 2016. Not all parents will necessarily receive their first choice of school. If your child has not been allocated a place at Christ the King Catholic Academy and you would like to try to secure a place for them, please follow the process below.
We would strongly advise you not to reject the place at the school your child has been allocated until you hear the outcome of the Appeals process.
There is a later date set aside for hearing appeals on the 20th July 2016. To be heard on this date appeal forms should be submitted to Christ the King Catholic Academy by the 1st July 2016 with any additional supporting documentation.
Do you have a child in primary school in year 2 or year 6?
If so, they will be taking the national curriculum tests (SATs) in May 2016.
The tests will provide information about how your child is progressing, compared to children the same age nationally.
They are not qualifications and don’t affect your child’s future options in school. The results are used to ensure that schools are teaching their pupils the essential knowledge and skills in the subjects that are the early building blocks. This is to ensure every child reaches their full potential.
There are changes to the tests this year at both key stages. This is because the tests are based on the new national curriculum, which your child has been taught since September 2014.
