Our Admissions policies:


The Admissions policies for pupils' admissions during the academic years  2023-24 and 2024-25 can be found below. They are for admissions to the foundation year (also known as reception or F2 base of our Foundation Stage Unit) onwards and include a timetable for appeals.

The following amendments were made in August 2021 to the determined policy for 2022-23 to comply with the revised School Admissions Code 2021: priority for children adopted from state care outside England was added to oversubscription criterion 1; wording added to reflect that decisions on in-year admissions must be sent to a parent within 15 school days; provision added for Hard to Place children; advice added regarding applications for overseas children.
