ADMISSION TO RIVERVIEW JUNIOR SCHOOL:
Our Published Admission Number (PAN) is 120 pupils in each of the four years and we are currently up to (or exceeding) our PAN in all years.
All applications to our school are ranked against our oversubscription criteria and places are offered on that basis. For more information on our oversubscription criteria, please see document below.
Once a sibling link has been broken, sibling priority will be permanently lost for that child regardless of any further address moves a family may make in the future.
If your child is due to start primary school in September 2024, you can appeal if you are refused a place at one of your preferred schools on National Offer Day (Tuesday 16th April 2024).

Decisions of appeals will be given within 5 school days of the hearing.
Any appeals received after this time will be heard within 40 school days from the deadline, or where reasonably possible in line with updated guidance from the Department for Education.
For late applications, appeals should be heard within 40 school days from the deadline for lodging appeals where possible, or within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged where reasonably possible in line with updated guidance from the Department for Education.
