Admissions to Unicorn

Admissions to Unicorn

We are an inclusive school that welcomes children from all backgrounds and of all abilities. The level of ability or any special educational need that a child may have plays no part in the admissions policy of the school. The only restriction we place on entry is that of number. Year on year the school is oversubscribed.

Unicorn Primary School is part of the Compass Academy Trust. The trust adheres to the admissions arrangements set out by Bromley Local Authority who are the ‘Admissions Authority’. They manage the admissions process for all applications to Unicorn in accordance with the DfE Schools Admission Code. This includes applications for our annual sixty Reception Year places, the additional three Year 3 places and also any ‘in year’ vacancies that occasionally arise.  

Please be aware that if your child does not already attend Unicorn Primary school but you will require one of the additional Year 3 places, please ensure that your application has been sent to Bromley's Admissions Team as soon as possible. 

Applications cannot be made directly to the school. Should you wish your child to be considered for any vacancy, it is essential that you have completed an in-year application form and submitted it to Bromley’s Admissions Team who process all applications for families who are Bromley residents. Information on the admissions procedure can be found by clicking on this link or by browsing the Bromley Local Authority website at www.bromley.gov.uk. If you live outside of Bromley you must apply through your own Local Authority.

Please follow this link for the Starting Primary Education in Bromley 2019 booklet which full details of admission procedures. 

OPEN MORNINGS

We welcome parents to come and visit our school prior to applying for a place at Unicorn.  Throughout the Autumn Term (September to December), open morning tours for parents are conducted by the Head Teacher on Wednesdays at 9.15am. If you would like to join one of the tours, please email the school office (admin@unicorn.bromley.sch.uk) stipulating your preferred date; please provide a contact telephone number. We will email confirmation of your place. We will be pleased to welcome you.
