ADMISSION ARRANGEMENTS 2017

Our current admissions arrangements for September 2017 are as follows:

The number of intended nursery admissions for the year commencing 1st September 2017 will be 30. All in year admissions are organised by the local authority admissions department.

Where applications for admission exceed the number of places available, the following criteria will be applied, in the order set out below, to decide which children to admit:

1. Looked after children

2. Where the child has a brother or sister (which includes step or half brother or sister residing at the same address) currently attending the school.

3. Proximity of the child’s home to the school, with those living nearer being accorded the higher priority.

 

Pupils will be admitted without reference to ability or aptitude.

 

Admissions PROCEDURE

When making an application for admission parents are asked to give careful consideration to:

a) Their commitment to supporting the vision, mission statement and aims of the school as described in the Parents Handbook and their willingness to support their child’s education.

b)Their commitment to ensuring that their child attends the school regularly and arrives punctually each day.

 

Parents who are interested in applying for a nursery place should phone the school and arrange a visit to collect an application form. Or Parents wishing their child to join the school in Reception to Year 6 should make application to the school. School places are allocated through this process for in year admissions. When filling in our school based admissions form after a place has been offered or when applying for a nursery place parents are required to bring two firm pieces of evidence of their child’s current address and a birth certificate or passport as evidence of the child’s date of birth. When a child has been offered a place and a start date given they will be introduced to their class teacher before they start at the school.
