We seek to be an inclusive academy, welcoming children from all backgrounds and of all abilities and this admissions policy reflects this. A child’s level of achievement or specific needs are not a barrier to admission to the academy.
Once a place has been offered we will seek to discuss children and their individual needs with parents before they are admitted to the academy and seek to make any reasonable adjustments to accommodate all children.
We seek to follow all relevant legislation regarding admissions, including in the setting and application of our over-subscription criteria.
- Looked after children (children in care) and previously looked after children
- Siblings of children already at the school within the catchment area of the school
- Residence within the catchment area of the school
- Siblings of children already at the school living out of the catchment area of the school
- Children living out of the catchment area who have a faith and / or whose parents are committed Church members and wish them to receive an education in a school with a Church of England foundation
- Resident out of the catchment area of the school [for explanation of resident and catchment area refer to items 2 and 3 in the clarifications section of Appendix 1]
We believe that ideally each child should be admitted to the school of their parents’ choice. However, the school buildings cannot accommodate an unlimited number of children and excessive class sizes are detrimental to the education of the children in the class. The Published Admissions Number for this school is 60. The academy will not usually admit children in to classes if their admission would cause the class size to increase above legal or practical limits, or the Published Admissions Number to be breached.
