Appleshaw St Peter's

Church of England Primary School

Admission Arrangements

The Governing Body of Appleshaw St Peter’s Church of England Primary School is the admission authority for The School. The admission arrangements are determined by the Governing Body, after statutory consultation.
 
The Published Admission Number (PAN) for Appleshaw St Peter’s Church of England Primary School (The School) is 15. The PAN is the number of places available for children in Year R.
 
A guiding principle of admissions to The School is that The School should serve its local community and the ecclesiastical parish of Appleshaw. The Local Authority Catchment Area is defined below. This policy aims to be clear, fair and objective and to comply with all relevant legislation.
 
Outside the normal admissions round, the Local Authority’s Fair Access protocol will be applied alongside this policy to secure the admission of vulnerable pupils from specific groups.
 
The governors will admit any pupil whose Education Health and Care Plan names The School. Where possible such children will be admitted within the PAN.
 
If The School is oversubscribed, places will be offered to applicants whose applications are received by the deadline which is midnight on15 January 2019 in the following priority order:
 
Admission Criteria
1. Looked after children or children who were previously looked after.
 
2. (For applicants in the normal admission round only) Children or family members who have a serious medical, physical or psychological condition which makes it essential that the child attends the preferred school rather than any other. (Appropriate medical or psychological evidence must be provided in support.)

(i) Children who at the time of application have a sibling (see Definition D) on the roll of The School.
(ii) Children with a parent who is an active member of a Christian church which is included in the list of Christian Churches and who requests admission on denominational grounds and provides relevant evidence.
