Admission Arrangements

All admissions are undertaken by Norfolk Local Authority. Our annual Published Admission Number for Reception is 37 but each year we are heavily oversubscribed as competition for places is high. Applications for admission into Reception need to be made directly to Norfolk County Council. Further details and admission criteria can be found by clicking the following link: Information on admission into Reception at Greyfriars Academy

If you wish your child to transfer to us in-year you will need to contact the Local Authority in the first instance. Further information and contact details can be found here: Information on moving schools within the current school year.

Each Autumn we hold an open morning for prospective parents whose children will be starting school the following September. We advertise this locally and through our website.

Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is allocated to schools to support the learning of children from low-income families. These are children who are known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) or have been eligible over the last 6 years.
Money is also allocated to schools with children who have been ‘looked after’ continuously for more than six months. Since April 2014 further pupil premium funding has been generated by children who have moved from care into adoption or special guardianship.
Children from service families are also eligible for additional funding.
It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per eligible pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
Schools are held accountable for how they have used Pupil Premium funding in support of the learning of pupils from low income families.
