Reception Open Mornings!
We will hold open mornings every Tuesday in November for prospective pupils for Reception 2021.
We will need to limit the number attending due to current restrictions. This means only one adult from each family will be able to attend. Unfortunately, it also means your children will not be able to attend the open mornings.
The session will start at 9:30am and last approximately 45 Minutes.
Reception Appeals 2020:
The closing date for Reception Appeals is the 15th May 2020. Please complete the Notice of Admission Appeal and return to the school prior to this date.
Given the current restrictions there will be a change to the way the appeals are heard in line with Department of Education guidelines.
All our appeals are heard by an Independent Panel and they will be doing this as follows:
Teleconferencing – no specialist equipment is required other than a telephone.
Videoconferencing – using an appropriate secure video conferencing software
In writing based on written submissions only – should the occasion arise when the panel requires clarification on any point(s), the clerk will contact both parties via video/telephone conferencing call. We will ensure that appellants are informed as appropriate.
Admission to Reach Academy Feltham is co-ordinated by the London Borough of Hounslow. Applications for places at the school should be made using the Common Application Form (CAF). Applications for ‘in-year’ admissions (once the school year has started) should be made to London Borough of Hounslow.

Pupil Premium & Early Years Premium Admissions Criteria
In order to ensure a diverse intake which reflects the balance of our community, we allocate a proportion of places to pupils’ eligible for the pupil premium at the closing date of applications in Secondary and Primary respectively. The proportion, 27% or 16 out of our 60 places, reflects the proportions in the local community.
If we receive applications that meet this criteria from more than 27% of places available, then places will be allocated in line with the over-subscription criteria set out in our admissions policy.
To be eligible parents must be receiving either one of the following:
- Income Support;
- Income based Job Seeker’s Allowance;
- Employment & Support Allowance (must be Income Related and not Contribution Based);
- Child Tax Credit with no Working Tax Credit and where household income is less than £16,190; or
- For their child to be in receipt of the Pupil Premium at the time of application.
Completing this form on its own does not constitute an application to Reach Academy Feltham. All parents wishing to apply must complete the Common Application Form (CAF).
