NOTES

The school is committed to taking its fair share of vulnerable children who are hard to place, in accordance with locally agreed protocols. Accordingly, outside the normal round of admissions, the governing body are empowered to give consideration to a child where admission is requested under any local protocol which carries the agreement of both the governing body and the diocese for the current admission year. The governing body has this power even when admitting such a child would exceed the normal admission number.

 The school will take twins and other multiple birth children, and children of armed forces personnel into infant classes even if it takes the class over the 30-child legal limit.

 In the case of criteria 2, 4 and 6, parish priests and ministers will be asked to complete a form to verify attendance in accordance with the admissions criteria.

 In the event of over-subscription in any one of the above categories, priority in that category will be given to children who live nearest the school measured in a straight line from the address to the school gate.

 Admission to the Reception Class is in September in the academic year in which a child becomes 5 years old.   

 The Governing Body will agree to a child deferring entry to the Reception Class until later in the school year but not beyond the term after the child’s fifth birthday nor beyond the academic year in which admission is sought.
