What happens after you have accepted a place at Brampton?


Parents/carers of children who are offered a place to join Brampton in September 2024 will be invited to an parent information meeting in June and the children will be invited to a teddy bears' picnic at the same time, which familiarise families with the school setting so that they feel ready to start in September.

After that, around June/July, we will book home visits with families. This is an opportunity for families to meet the reception staffing team and ask any questions that they may have.


When the children start school in September, they start gradually. Children will come in until 11:30 and then in until 1:30 to include lunchtime and then in full time. Most children will be full time within two weeks.

Consultation on Trust admissions arrangements 25/26


REAch2 Academy Trust (the Trust), as the admission authority for all of its academies as per the admissions code 2021, is consulting on the admission arrangements for all of its schools. It is the responsibility of the Trust to determine the arrangements for all of its schools, ensuring that they are fully compliant with the admissions code 2021 and other statutory legislation, such as the Equalities Act 2010.


On 4 October 2023, the Trust Board approved several variations to the current arrangements, which seek to add clarity to a number of key definitions within the policy. The new policy also includes more information on how parents can access other admissions related information, including in-year admissions, appeals processes, and Fair Access Protocol’s.


The new policies do not propose any change to the school’s existing over-subscription criteria. The new policy seeks to make clear that children within the final category of the over-subscription criteria are ranked by the distance they live from the school. The Trust has therefore re-named this criterion from ‘other children’ to ‘distance’. Children within that criterion will still be ranked in the same way.


You can find the proposed school policy for 2025/2026 by visiting  Academy Directory - REAch2 Academy Trust


The consultation will run from 6  December 2023 to 31 January 2024.


We welcome feedback from all stakeholders on the proposed arrangements. Responses to the consultation may be placed by any of the following means:
