Getting a Place
It is always a good idea to visit any school which you intend to send your child to. At Castle Academy we have an excellent staff team who work hard to make sure all children feel safe and make the most of the opportunities on offer.
You can get basic information about our school by checking through our website but we would encourage you to come for a visit with your child so you can get a feel for life in school. If you contact the school office Miss Womack will arrange an appointment with the school Principal Mrs Mason. She will be happy to show you around and answer any questions you may have.
How to apply
Applications for admission to the academy are managed by Doncaster Council. Please visit www.doncaster.gov.uk/admissions to apply.
Details for specific year groups can be found below. The Doncaster Council policy for admissions states that if you submit an application by 5pm on a Friday during term time, you should hear a decision by the following Friday. The policy below includes information on how children are selected for a place, over- subscription criteria and how you are notified of a place.

The Admissions Department at the Local Authority process all admissions. If your child is at another school, you should always make an appointment to see the Headteacher in an attempt to resolve any issues prior to making a decision to move schools. It is a major decision which has a big impact on a child’s learning and well-being. If you decide that this is the best course of action, then ask your child’s current school to compete a transfer form. Once you have decided upon your chosen school, take the form to that school. They will complete their section of the transfer form. You should then send this to the council to be processed.
We do not currently have a nursery. This means our pupils come from a variety of Settings. Parents and carers are entitled to apply for whichever FS2 (Reception) place they wish regardless of which nursery they attended. This is made very clear in the Admissions Code for Doncaster. Applications should be made by 15th January. It is important to meet this deadline as all the applications received at this time will be processed before any later forms.
