A breakdown by primary school of the number of year 6 pupils (from September) resident in your school's normal area is available on the Perspective Lite Secure Portal.
Only the headteacher or delegated member of staff will have access to this portal. Your Perspective Lite Secure Portal username and password (personal school email username and password) are required to enter this site.
This information is never definitive due to the nature of pupil mobility, but it will provide you with sufficient information for prospectus distribution purposes. In some cases the numbers may not include all Derbyshire pupils attending out of county schools due to differing timescales in data transfer. These numbers also include pupils who are baptised Catholic and who will come within the area of their local Catholic school.
Secondary transfer information for parents will be in primary schools during the week commencing 11 September 2017, and primary schools will be asked to distribute it by Friday 15 September 2017 at the latest. Can you please therefore make arrangements to have your prospectuses available to tie-in with this.
Last year 99.9% of parents who applied for a secondary school place did so online. If you are already planning open evenings and publicity for prospective parents of year 7 pupils for the 2018 to 2019 academic year, it would be appreciated if you would again help promote applying online and offer parents the use of PCs during open events to allow them to make their application.
It would also be appreciated if you will provide links from your school website to Derbyshire admission arrangements to help parents to make their applications.
Full information on the application process will be sent shortly. If you do however have any queries on the process before then please contact the admissions and transport team, tel: 01629 537479.
