Each year we have a planned admission number of 21 children. Parents are invited to contact the School Office and make an appointment with the Headteacher to discuss the admission of children to the school. Please use the information sheet and application form links below.

Having schools and academies deal with in-year admissions tends to speed up the process as they can often give parents an immediate answer about whether there are places available and they can process the application more quickly. That means that a child moving into the area will have less time out of education.

Gloucestershire Local Authority can still offer advice, you can email them directly.

Gloucestershire Council Council have recently launched the Family Portal which families can use to apply for the following:

  • Free School Meals

  • Applications for starting Reception, transferring to Junior, Secondary, Middle, and High Schools(Secondary and High available from 5th September 2016, Junior, Middle and Reception available from November 2016)

  • Two Year Old Funding

Oversubscription Criteria

Where applications for admission exceed the number of places available, the following criteria will be applied, in the order set out below, to decide which children to admit:

  1. Children in Public Care
  2. In the csse of companion infant and junior schools, priority will be given to pupils attending the companion infant school
  3. Children who will have siblings attending the school at the time the applicant child is admitted
  4. Children who will have siblings attending the companion infant school at the time the applicant child is admitted
  5. Children with the strongest geographical claim, measured in a straight line from the centre of the child’s home address (including flats) to the central point of the school, using the Local Authority’s computerised measuring system, with those living closer to the school receiving the higher priority.
