Pupils will be admitted as follows:

• At the beginning of the Autumn term, all children who become five years old between 1st September 2015 and 31st August 2016, up to a maximum of 30. 

• Children whose parents request that their child’s admission is deferred until later in the school year – up until the child reaches compulsory school age in that school year – will be admitted on an agreed date. Parents can also request that their child attends part-time until the child reaches compulsory school age. 

• The intended number to admit for the whole year is 30, including any deferred admissions. 

The allocation of places for each school year will be decided, according to the criteria set by the Governing Body, as detailed below. Applications for admission to the Foundation Stage will be dealt with in accordance with the Local Authority (LA)’s Scheme for Coordinating Admissions. All applications must be made on a common application form to be returned by parents/guardians to the LA by their published deadline. Parents will be informed of the place they are being offered on the national offer date and must affirm in writing in writing in writing by a date to be specified that they wish their child to take the place offered. If no reply is received by this date, the offer of a place will be withdrawn by the LA and the place offered to the next child on the waiting list. 


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 child. 

2. Children living within the school catchment area and has a brother or sister currently attending the school in years R to 5.

3. Children living within the school’s catchment area. A map is available from the school office. 

4. Other children with a sibling attending the school at the time of admission 

5. Other children according to the proximity of the child’s house to the school measured by the straight-line distance between the front door of the home and the main door of the school.

In each individual over-subscription criterion, who live closest to the school measured by the straight-line distance described above. If a parent accepts a place in a reception class during the normal admission round but asks to defer their child’s entry to school, this place will be held for the child as long as it is taken up within the same academic year as that for which it was offered. 

Admission arrangements for children in years 1 to 6 and late applications for reception. and late applications for reception. These will follow the same rules for over-subscription as those described above. 

Refusal of admission 

If admission is refused to a child, the LA will maintain a waiting list until the end of the first week of the autumn term. If a place has not become available by that time, parents should inform the school directly that they still wish their child to attend and he/she will then be placed on the school’s waiting list and offered a place if one becomes available. There is, however, no guarantee that being on a waiting list will lead to the child’s eventual admission to the school. The waiting list will be kept in an order that follows the same priorities as the over-subscription criteria and will therefore not be in date order of application to the school. 

Parents are entitled to appeal if their application for their child’s admission is unsuccessful. Details of the arrangements for appeal against non-admission are available from the school office.
