Visiting the School
Under normal circumstances we would like to welcome you to come and see our school in action. However due to Covid 19 regulations we are planning some out of hours visits. These will take place on a Monday and Wednesday after school at 4.30pm. Places are limited to 2 families at a time, you must adhere to social distancing and any visitors over 11 must wear a face covering.
Places must be booked in advance.
If you would like to attend one of these events, please contact the school office by email on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01628 486655 to reserve a place.
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 prior to admission, to meet the staff and discuss details of the school organisation. Your child will also have the opportunity to visit his or her class and new teacher, before the new term starts.
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 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, the criteria laid down by the County Council will be followed.
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 An offer of a place can be withdrawn even after a child has started school.
