Under the Education Act parents have a right to choose a school for their children.  Each school has a ‘standard number’ of places, which is the minimum number of children who should be admitted in any year.  Our current Published Admission Number (PAN) is 90 across the school.

All admissions to the school are dealt with by Warwickshire County Council

The law states that children have to start school by the beginning of the term after they reach the age of five. The Local Authority Admission Policy states that children should be admitted at the start of the school year in which they are 5. 

The Local Authority (LA) is the admission authority for community and controlled schools and is therefore responsible for determining the admission arrangements for our school.

Admission to our school is coordinated centrally by Warwickshire County Council.  All parents must fill in a Common Application Form which allows parents to list up to 3 schools that they would like their child to attend, and give the reasons for the preference.

The closing date for applications is the January of the year in which the child will start school.

The form is available from:  Warwickshire County Council School Admissions

It must be filled in and returned to Warwickshire County Council School Admissions.  The actual closing date and full details of the arrangements are provided in the guide to primary education booklet that accompanies the form.

Where applicants for admission to the school exceed places available, the following criteria will be applied by Warwickshire County Council in the order of priority set out below:

1a: Looked after children and all previously looked after children.

1b: Children who have been adopted through a CVAA UK agency.

2: Children who receive the Early Years Pupil Premium for their early years’ provider.

3: Children who are currently, or have been at any point since 1st September 2015, subject to a Child in Need Plan or a Child Protection Plan.

4: Children living in the priority area for the school, who will have a sibling attending the same school in Years 1 - 6 at the time of admission in September 2022.

5: Other children living in the priority area for the school.

6: Children living outside the priority area for the school, who will have a sibling attending the same school in Years 1 – 6 at the time of admission in September 2022.

7: Other children living outside the priority area for the school.

All applications received after the normal admissions round, or for an existing year group, will be treated as ‘in–year applications’.  All applications should be submitted to Warwickshire County Council School Admissions.

The School Admissions Code 2021 can be found here.
