Admissions

The School Admission Process

The West Berkshire School Admissions Team co-ordinate the admissions process for West Berkshire residents. To apply for a school place you must complete the relevant application form (not school registration/application forms).

The application process must be co-ordinated between all Local Authorities and this means that parents must apply to their home LA, even if applying for schools in a different LA. 

School Admissions Guide is produced each year in September for parents applying for their child to start school in the following academic year . The guide includes all the information you need to make your application. Applicants should read the guide carefully to understand what is required.

Starting School for the First Time

Every October, a new allocation process begins for parents making applications for the first point of entry into Infant or Primary Schools starting in the next academic year. The year group is known as Reception or Foundation 2.

You should apply for a school place by the closing date in the academic year of your child's 4th Birthday. The closing date for 2017/2018 is 15th January 2017. Parents who need to apply for a place starting in the 2017/2018 academic year are those with a child whose date of birth is between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013.

Applying for a Place

Applicants will need to follow the procedures outlined above when applying either for a first entry place to the Reception year or for admissions to Years 1 to 6. We welcome new pupils at any time during the school year if we have spaces available. Our Acting Headteacher, Miss Walsingham, is pleased to meet with prospective parents (and pupils) and offer them a tour of the school. For parents applying for a Reception place, we normally offer this during the autumn term or at other times as appropriate.

Our planned admission number (PAN) is 15 - this means that each year group will normally have up to 15 pupils although this number may be exceeded under certain circumstances.
