Admissions

If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.

Admission Applications

 

The school’s process for admission applications are handled by Bucks County Council. Full details can be found through the link below:

Visiting the School

 

We will be holding prospective parent visit sessions on the lead up to admission applications, on the following dates/times:

 

Tuesday 24th September – 9:30-11:30am
Thursday 24th October – 9:30-11:30am
Monday 25th November – 1:30-3:00pm
Wednesday 8th January – 9:30-11:30am

 

If you would like to attend one of these events, please contact the school office on 01628 486655 to reserve a place.  The events will begin with the Headteacher’s welcome so please arrive promptly.

 

Parents will then be given the opportunity to ask questions and see the school in action.

 

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.

 

Admissions

 

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  An offer of a place can be withdrawn even after a child has started school.
