No child will be refused admission to the school on any grounds other than if the limit, set by the Governing Body, has been reached in a particular year group or if to admit a child would prejudice the efficient education of children already in the school.  The Governing Body support a maximum class size of thirty.  Children enter Foundation Stage 2  in September.

 

Before children can be admitted to the school, details must be given to the Head Teacher, via the school secretary, to be entered on the admission form.  A birth certificate should be presented prior to starting full time education.  The school should be notified immediately of any change of address or telephone number.

 

All parents wishing to visit the school before applying for admission for their child are more than welcome to do so.  Please contact the Head Teacher who will be happy to take time to show you around, discuss the school and answer any questions you may have.

 

During the Autumn Term a letter will be sent to you by the LA with information on how to apply for a school place and how to express a preference for which primary school you would like your child to attend.  If you do not receive a letter please telephone the admissions office at the LA on 01709 382121.  For further details on our school’s admission arrangements, please click here: http://www.rotherham.gov.uk/schools

 

Following receipt of Parental Preference forms the existing admissions criteria to allocate places is as follows:

 

  • Catchment area as the first criterion

  • Siblings already in school

  • Social and medical reasons

  • Distance between home and school

 

Those children with statements of Special Educational Needs who have a statement specifying a particular school will automatically gain entry to that school.
