Applying for a School place
Entry into Reception Class September 2019
Applications for Reception places are dealt with by Gloucestershire County Council and places for September 2019 will be offered in April 2019. If your child is due to start school in September 2019 you should receive paperwork in the post from the Council by mid November. If you have not received a pack by December, you should contact the school admissions team on 01452 425407 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The closing date for applications to Gloucestershire County Council is Tuesday 15th January 2019 and further details can be found on the Gloucestershire Council website. The allocation day for Reception 2019 is Tuesday 16th April 2019. We have one intake each year, at the start of the Autumn Term. Reception children are normally admitted to school in the September following their 4th birthday. The Published Admission Number (PAN) is a maximum of 30 children in each class; we have a maximum intake of 60 children for the Reception year group. Infant Class Size Legislation states that there should be no more than 30 children in any infant class.
The Application Process:
- Parents complete the Gloucestershire County Council preference forms in the Autumn before their child is due to start school (these can be completed online by following this link)
- Parents submit this form to Gloucestershire County Council (these can be completed and submitted electronically)
- Places are allocated by Gloucestershire County Council the following April
- If choices haven't been met, parents may request reconsideration and appeal. Both of these processes are dealt with by Gloucestershire County Council.
Our tours for prospective parents are on: Tuesday 6th November 2018 at 10am and 2pm
Monday 19th November 2018 at 9.30am
Thursday 6th December 2018 at 11.00am and 2.30pm
Please contact the school office if you would like to attend on one of these days in order that we can ensure the Head teacher is available to give you a tour and answer any questions.
Admissions (Entry into Reception during the academic year or entry into Year 1 and Year 2)
Parents of children moving into the area, are welcome to make an appointment to visit the school. An In-Year Application Form then needs to be completed and returned to school with proof of residency. If there is space in the year group, arrangements are made to admit the child. If no place is available, parents are informed by letter, and informed about the appeals process. Children refused a place due to over-subscription are automatically placed on the waiting list.
