If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below. 


If your child attends a school within the Sunderland Authority and you would like to transfer them to Redby Primary Academy, there is a protocol to follow before the move can be approved.


In the first instance, you should meet with the Head Teacher of the school your child is transferring from to advise that you are considering the move. You will be required to complete and sign a Pupil Transfer Notice, which will also be signed by the Head Teacher. This form will then be sent to the Admissions Team for processing. In the meantime, you are advised to make an appointment to meet with Miss Wight to discuss your child’s move and receive our own transition information. This will enable you to make an informed decision as to whether we are the right school for your child.


The Admissions Team will be able to verify whether there are spaces in the Year group and you will be advised by them, in liaison with ourselves, as to when the transfer can take place.
