Wishing to join our wonderful ACADEMY
We are a fully inclusive academy and welcome applications for all children.
Applying for your child’s school place should be hassle free. We have put together key information to help you with your application process. We look forward to hearing from you to have a tour of our academy.
Please get in touch to book a personal tour or details on our open events via our contact us page
Our academy is part of E-ACT, a multi-academy trust. E-ACT is the Admissions Authority for the academy and Denham Green E-ACT Academy has a planned admission number (PAN) of 30 for Reception.
If you would like to apply for a place, please give us a call on 01895 833 369 to arrange a visit to school to look around, meet staff and find out more about our academy.
Buckinghamshire Council administers entry to Reception and in-year admissions. Once we are at capacity, vacancies are filled using our oversubscription criteria.
We have 30 places available in Reception. If you would like to apply for a place in our Reception to Year 6 classes (either when your child is starting school or looking to move to our school), please do so using the Buckinghamshire Council’s Application Form. Once Buckinghamshire Council has offered your child a place on our behalf, we will contact you to forward you our Welcome Pack.
To apply for a place, please do so using the Buckinghamshire Council‘s Common Application Form. This is a downloadable form, which asks for key details, which are then forwarded on to the school. When we receive these details, we will contact you directly to confirm your child’s place and start date.
Our academy will consider all applications sent from Buckinghamshire Council, where there are spaces within the year group. Where there are not spaces within that year group, our academy will consider each application on an individual basis, according to our oversubscription criteria in our Admissions Arrangements.
Our teachers and office staff are happy to help and advise you in your application to the academy. Please give us a call on 01895 833 369 should you require more information.

Criterion 2: Exceptional and Compelling Medical, Psychological, Social or Special Access Reasons (the definition of which and process to be followed is set out in the Admission Arrangements) which can only be met at the Academy. It is important that additional evidence is required in respect of this (as defined in the Notes attached). Please note that a
Supplementary Information Form (SIF) must be completed for an application under this criterion within the timescales for the point of entry required.
Criterion 3: Siblings (as defined in the Notes attached) of pupils currently on the roll at the Academy at the time of application for the proposed admission of the applicant.

Criterion 6: Children whose parent/carer is a member of staff who has either been continuously employed at the Academy for two (2) or more years at the time of application for a place or has been recruited to fill a vacancy for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage. Please note that a SIF form must be completed for an application under this criterion within the timescales for the point of entry required.
Criterion 7: Any other applications of which priority of placement will be given to children who live nearest to the Academy (including if this address is with a parent/carer with shared responsibility for the child or not). The child’s home address will be the child’s permanent place of residency and must not be a business address, or the address of a relative or carer, unless they have legal custody of the child. Applications must only be made from a single address.
In Year admissions
Have you just moved to the area or want to change your child’s school? All parents/carers who wish to apply for a place at any time in the year will need to contact the Council directly. The council will liaise with you about a place and will contact you with the outcome of your application.
You can submit your application directly to the council via click here. Please contact them directly to check your child’s position on the waiting list.
Offers are made to the number of places available. If there are more applications than places, then places are allocated according to the oversubscription criteria. This applies to in-year applications for each year group.
