St Andrew'sCE Primary School

Admissions

St Andrew’s Primary School is a Church of England Primary School at the heart of a village community. It has a strong Christian ethos and links with both its local church and community.  Our Christian values of Respect, Friendship, Honesty, Dedication, Kindness and Forgiveness underpin everything we do.

Children normally start school in the year in which they turn five but mid-year applications from children moving to the area or from other schools will also be welcome if we have space available to accommodate them. 

If you would like to arrange to visit the school before making an application please contact the school office on 01858 880430  or email office@sta.learnat.uk

 

Admissions policy

Children starting school for the first time will normally start on on the first day of the Autumn Term following their 4th birthday.  Applications for first admissions must be made by January of the year in which the child is due to start school; any application received after the closing date will be treated as a mid-year admission.

The school has a maximum of capacity of 104 places with a planned admission limit of 15 per cohort. However if the cohort one year above has fewer children in it than the admissions limit, the school may admit extra children to balance numbers.

The school's admissions authority is Learn Academies Trust and the admissions policy is reviewed annually.

Applications must be made on the Local Authority’s common application form which can be found here or via the school.

Please see the policies below for full details.

The deadline for applications for first admissions in September 2022 is 15th January 2022 and parents/carers will be notified of the outcome of their application on 19th April 2022.
