Pupil Admission Number (PAN): 90 per year
The transfer to junior school admission round is for children in their last year at an infant school (currently in Year 2). Pupils transfer from infant schools to junior schools in the year after their 7th birthday (they will be age 7+ on 1 September 2019).
Following a consultation regarding the Pupil Admission Numbers (PAN) for Cliff Park Junior School, in early 2018, East Anglia Schools Trust (the previous MAT for Ormiston Cliff Park Junior Academy) reached the decision that the school PAN for September 2019 would be set at 90 pupils. From 1st December 2018 onwards, Ormiston Academies Trust is the Admissions Authority for Ormiston Cliff Park Junior Academy.

A move to a different school at any time other than admission to reception, transfer to junior or transfer to secondary is known as an ‘in-year transfer’. This could be a move between Norfolk schools or a move to a Norfolk school from a school in a different area.
Norfolk County Council organise in-year school transfers and admissions. Please see the Norfolk County Council ‘Moving schools during the school year’ webpage here https://www.norfolk.gov.uk/education-and-learning/schools/school-admissions/moving-schools
If you want to transfer to a school that is not in Norfolk, you will need to contact your new local authority to ask about their admissions process. Find your new local authority using the Government’s local council finder here https://www.gov.uk/find-local-council
