Children can be admitted to the school in the September of the year in which they have their fifth birthday. While the majority of parents usually take advantage of the Authority’s arrangements there is no legal requirement for any child to be in full time education until the beginning of the term following their fifth birthday.

During the Summer Term there will be an opportunity for new entrants and parents to visit school. Children will be admitted to school in September to begin their induction. The maximum admission number for our school is 8 children.

Some schools receive more applications than there are places available. Where this happens at a community or voluntary controlled school applications will be prioritised using the oversubscription criteria contained in the General Admissions Policy. This means that children will be allocated places in the order of priority given below:

Children looked after ie. in public care, giving priority, if necessary to the youngest child(ren) and children who were previously looked after.

Children living in the catchment area who have brothers or sisters in the school at the time of their admission.

Children living outside the catchment area who have brothers or sisters in the school at the time of their admission who were directed to that school by the LA either in the absence of a place being available in the catchment area school due to oversubscription and the school was identified by the LA as the nearest with a place available or in their Statement of Special Educational Needs.

Children living in the catchment area with a parent on the electoral roll of a C of E church.

Other children living in the catchment area giving priority to those living furthest away from an alternative school where the LA is able to determine that a place is available, measured by the shortest walking route by road.

Children living outside the catchment area who have brothers or sisters in the school at the time of their admission.

In relation to Church of England Voluntary Controlled Schools, children living outside the catchment area who with a parent regularly attend a church in membership of Churches Together in Britain or the Evangelical Alliance.
