Admissions to Main school

Please see our School Tour & Welcome page for a copy of the most up-to-date prospectus. There are separate arrangements for Nursery admissions.

Deciding which is the right school to apply to for your child’s education is very important. We are a school right in the centre of Jennett’s Park housing development.

For admissions into our Reception classes and all other year groups within the school, we work closely with Bracknell Forest Council who manage the process of application in line with our School Admissions Policy.

The admissions arrangements for the academic year 2022/2023 and 2023/2024 have now been agreed by the governing body and can be found below:

In-Year Applications During 2022/23

The Local Authority will administer all “in year” applications on behalf of the Governing Body. Applications to the Reception Class once the school year has started will be treated as “in-year” applications. In the event of over-subscription for any year group, the over-subscription criteria contained in the admissions policy for the current school year will be applied.. The school will determine whether or not a place can be offered and parents will be informed. Parents moving into the area and wishing to apply for a place at Jennett’s Park CE Primary School should contact Bracknell Forest LA Admissions Team, who will advise you about how to make an application. Parents wishing to transfer from a Bracknell Forest Primary school should complete the Primary School Transfer Application Form obtainable from the Headteacher of your child’s current school. The LA will pass on any applications to the Governing Body so that it can make a decision about a place. Once this information is received, the School will endeavour to advise the Local Authority of their decision within 5 school days.
In KS2 we may agree to admission over PAN unless it would prejudice the provision of efficient education or efficient use of resources.
Parents will be notified by the LA of the result of their application in writing within 15 school days.

Oversubscription criteria

Please read our admissions policies very carefully and ensure you understand the oversubscription criteria. Please also make sure you meet all published closing dates; failure to do so will mean your application will be considered after all other 'on time' applications. The designated area for admission to Jennett’s Park can be viewed here.


There is an established appeals process if you are not offered a place in the main Primary school (all classes except Nursery). The Local Authority manage our appeals and you should contact the school directly for an Appeals Pack. Unfortunately the School is not able to discuss any appeal with you or advise you in any way.
