Admissions

If you are considering applying to our school we would be delighted to show you around. Please contact the school office to make an appointment if you can't make it to any of our open sessions.

If you are considering an in year transfer to our school please do give us a call to see if we can accommodate your request. We would be happy to discuss this with you.

In total we have places for 210 children - 30 per year group.  Places for the Foundation Stage Class are offered to children in the year in which they have their fifth birthday. In the event that the school is over-subscribed, the following criteria apply to determine priority. 

  1. Children who have a statement of special educational needs that names the school will be admitted. NB. Those children with a statement of special educational needs that does not name the school will be referred to STAR Team to determine an appropriate place.
  2. Children in Care, also Looked After Children (LAC), and children who were looked after but ceased to be so by reason of adoption, a resident order or special guardianship order.
  3. Children living in the school's catchment area with a sibling (children living in the same home) at the school at the time of admission.
  4. Children living in the catchment area who are applying on religious grounds (and whose application is supported by a letter from the leader of the religious community attended by the family.) Applications are welcomed from parents/guardians of children who are members of all churches affiliated to Churches Together in Britain and Ireland. The parents/guardians must be members of the church who practice in accordance with its normal disicpline and normally at least monthly.
  5. Children living in the catchment area.
  6. Children living outside the catchment area with a sibling (children living in the same home) at the school at the time of admission.
  7. Children living outside the catchment area who are applying on religious grounds (and whose application is supported by a letter from the leader of the religious community attended by the family.) Applications are welcomed from parents/guardians of children who are members of all churches affiliated to Churches Together in Britain and Ireland. The parents/guardians must be members of the church who practice in accordance with its normal disicpline and normally at least monthly.
  8. Children living outside the catchment area.

In cases of equal merit priority will go first to looked after children and then to children living nearest the school by shortest straight distance.
