Admissions

Parents of all children, whether resident in the school catchment area or not, who wish to apply for a place for their child in Reception Year should apply through the central systems organised by their Local Authority.

 

As a voluntary controlled school, when applications for admission exceed the number of places available, the admissions criteria for community and voluntary controlled schools will be applied by the Local Authority.

 

Individual pupils who have an Education, Health and Care Plan which names the school will be admitted.

 

In deciding on admissions for all community and voluntary controlled schools in Derbyshire, the following order of priority will be adopted.

 

  1. Looked after children and children who were looked after but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a child arrangements order or special guardianship order). 
  2. Children living in the normal area served by the school at the time of application and admission who have brothers or sisters attending the school at the time of application and admission.  
  3. Children living in the normal area served by the school at the time of application and admission.  
  4. Children not living in the normal area served by the school but who have brothers or sisters attending the school at the time of application and admission.  
  5. In the case of voluntary controlled church schools, children whose parents request a place on religious grounds.*** 
  6. Other children whose parents have requested a place.

 

Where, in the case of 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 above, choices have to be made between children satisfying the same criteria, those children living nearest to the school (measured by straight line) will be given preference. ****

 

In Year Applications

 

Your child may need to move schools at a time other than when they start primary school. This is referred to as “In Year Admissions”. If you wish to apply for a place at our school at any time other than the usual intake period, then you will need to contact your Local Authority.
