Visiting the School
We are delighted to be able to offer school tours to our prospective new parents. These tours will be in small groups (maximum of 3 families per tour) on Wednesday mornings 9.30-10.30am and Friday afternoons 2.00-3.00pm.
Places on these sessions must be booked in advance.
If you would like further information regarding the tours or to book your place, please contact the school office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01628 486655.
In the meantime please take a look at our welcome video: https://www.burfordschool.co.uk/welcome
Once a place has been offered to your child, you will be invited to a meeting at the school to meet the staff and discuss details of the school organisation.
Children start school at the beginning of the school year in which their fifth birthday falls. Most children attend full-time from that September.
The admission number for our school is 60. This figure represents the maximum number of children that can normally be admitted to the school for the first time in any one academic year. In the event of the number of requests for admission exceeding the number of places available, our school Admissions Policy criteria will apply.
Where a child has two homes due to parental responsibility being shared by two people who live apart, the address used will be the one at which the child resides for the majority of time during school terms, as confirmed by written evidence from both parents/guardians.
If a place at the school is offered and it is then discovered that the offer was made based on fraudulent or misleading information (for example, a false claim to living in the catchment area), and this denied a place to a child with a stronger claim, the Governing Body will withdraw the offer of a place. An offer of a place can be withdrawn even after a child has started school.
