Choosing a school for your child can be a stressful experience for parents. Before you choose, we would advise you to take time to visit our school and others in the local area. You will find that they are all different. Look at what happens every day, talk about how you could be involved, and find out how children learn and the other activities they are involved in. Where possible, talk to staff and also children at the school. This will help you to decide which school will best suit your child.
During September each year, we hold open mornings where prospective parents are invited to have a tour of our school in small groups. The dates for the open mornings will be on the website. Parents who have previously registered an interest with us will also be notified of the dates by post. If the open morning dates are not convenient, we are happy to show parents around individually.
We have an open door approach and are very happy to answer any questions you might have. Please pop in to see us or phone the school office on 01242 673814.
The admissions number for our school is 90 pupils for Reception each year.
All applications for places are made on the applicants' home Local Authority form. This will, in almost all cases, be Gloucestershire County Council's application form.
Although the Governing Body has responsibility for deciding on admissions, the Local Authority will co-ordinate all admissions in its area and will communicate all admission decisions to parents.
Pupils who have a Statement of Special Educational Needs/Educational Health Plan where our school is named in the statement/plan, will be admitted.
In the event that more than 90 applications are received, the over-subscription criteria will be applied to determine priority for places. All school preferences, as declared on the Local Authority application form, are treated equally.
For further information information on the over-subscription criteria, in-year admissions and appeals please see the full Admissions Policy below. Additional guidance from Gloucestershire County Council is available via the link below.
