New Reception Parents 2022-23
If your child is starting Reception in 2022, please visit our New Entrants Page here.
The school's Governing Body has sole responsibility for admissions and each year publishes its Admissions Policy which specifies how Governors consider application for admissions to the school. Before you make an application for the admission of your child, you are strongly advised to consider carefully the current Admission Policies below. This sets out in detail how governors manage the admission process and the order of priority in which applications are considered.
Reception Admissions Process
To enable the Governing Body to have all relevant information before it, in order for governors to make an informed decision on whether to offer a place, applicants are asked to complete and submit the following by the 15th January before you child is due to start Reception class:
If applicants do not complete the above forms and return them together with all the relevant required paperwork by 15th January the Governing Body will have to consider their application as a late application and it is very unlikely that the candidate will be offered a place.
Applications for IN-Year admissions are made directly to the school. Demand for places is high and we may not be able to accommodate your request.
If you wish to apply for your child to join Year Reception to Year 6, you will need to complete an application and the school's Supplementary Information Form with supporting documents and return these to the school.
We will aim to respond to an in-year application within 10 school days and no longer that 15 school days.
In the event that there is no waiting list and provided that there is a vacancy the candidate will be admitted. If there is a waiting list, then applications will be ranked by the Governing Body in accordance with the oversubscription criteria of the current Admissions Policy.
If a place cannot be offered at this time the applicants will be provided with the reasons and will be informed of a right of appeal and will automatically be added to our waiting list. Each time a new child is added to the waiting list, the list will be re-ranked in order of the over subscription criteria. The waiting list will be maintained by the Governing Body in the order of the over subscription criteria and not in the order in which the applications are received. Names are removed from the waiting list at the end of each academic year unless applicants confirm they wish to remain on the list.
When a place becomes available the Governing Body will decide who is at the top of the waiting list and make an offer.
Any changes in circumstances must be notified to the School in writing. Applicants may be asked to provide proof of address.
