The Governing Body is the Admissions Authority and is responsible for determining the school’s admissions policy. The planned admission number for September 2018 is 30. The Admissions Policy Criteria will be applied on an Equal Preference basis. Children who have a Statement of Special Educational Needs which names our school will be admitted to the school. Please see the relevant admissions policy above and ensure that you have cross-referenced this with the boundaries on the map.
 

ADDITIONAL NOTES

Definition of Roman Catholic

Children who have been baptised as Roman Catholics or have been formally received into the Roman Catholic Church. All applicants seeking admission under any of criteria 2 and 3 will be asked to provide evidence that the child has been baptised as a Roman Catholic or has been received into the Roman Catholic Church. A baptismal certificate or a letter from their priest confirming their baptism or reception into the Roman Catholic Church will suffice.

Definition of Children in the care of Local Authority

A child who is looked after by a Local Authority in accordance with Section 22 of the Children’s Act 1989(b) at the time application for admission to the school is made an who the Local Authority can confirm, will still be looked after at the time of admission to the school.

Definition of Sibling

Sibling refers to brother or sister, half brother or sister, adopted brother or sister, step brother or sister, or the child of the parent/carer’s partner where the child for whom the school place is sought is living in the same family unit at the same address as that sibling.

Churches Together in England

(See www.churches-together.org.uk for further details on membership)
The Baptist Union, British Antiochian Orthodox Church, Cherubim and Seraphim Council of Churches, The Church of England, Church of God Prophecy, Church of Scotland (in England), Congregational Federation, Coptic Orthodox, Council of African and Caribbean Churches, Council of Oriental Orthodox Churches, Ichthus Christion Fellowship, Independent Methodist Churches, Joint Council for Anglo-Caribbean Churches, Lutheran Council of Great Britain, The Methodist Church, United Reform Church, Wesleyan Holiness Church.

if applicants are seeking admission under criteria 4 and 5 above, they will be asked for a letter of support to confirm their church membership from their minister of Faith leader, or suitable equivalent.

Tie Breaker

Where there are places available for some, but not all applicants within a particular criterion, distance from home address to the school entrance will be the deciding factor. Distance will be measured (in a straight line) from the front door of the child’s home address (including flats) to the main entrance of the school, (using the Local Authority’s computerised measuring system), with those living closer to the school receiving the higher priority.

Right of Appeal

Where a parent has been notified that a place is not available for a child, every effort will be made to help the parent to find a place in a suitable alternative school. Parents who are refused a place have a statutory right of appeal. Further details of the appeals process are available by writing to the Chair of Governors at the school address.
