Admissions

Message from the Head teacher:

Please have a look at some of our pupils enjoying their school day.  We offer a safe learning environment where everyone is supported to achieve their potential, where children can enjoy a hot meal cooked on site and have lots of opportunities to learn and play.  Along with our wrap around care facility from 7.30 am to 6.00pm each school day we offer everything your child needs to grow and flourish.   We look forward to welcoming you into our school family.

 

 


Mrs Jayne Watson

All admissions are co-ordinated by Lincolnshire County Council and our Pupil Admission Number (PAN) for Reception 2022 is 40 pupils. School admissions policies – Lincolnshire County Council

For new Reception intakes, parents are asked to complete their application online via the Lincolnshire County Council website. Applications are made from November to January and offers are available in April. You can download our full Admissions Policy below, but for your information, where we are oversubscribed the following selection criteria will be applied:

A.    EHCP

B.    The child is in the care of the local authority or had previously been in care.

C.    There is a brother or sister at the school who will still be attending when the child is due to start or is on roll at the time of the application, and also it is the nearest school to the home address by straight line distance.

D.     There is a brother or sister at the school who will still be attending when the child is due to start or is on roll at the time of the application, but it is not the nearest school to the home address by straight line distance.

E.    The school is the nearest one to the home address by straight line distance.

F.    The straight line distance from home to the school, priority will be given to the child living closest.

For all other admissions, complete an online Midyear Application form on the Lincolnshire County Council website. The School Admissions Team will only consider mid-year applications where an application form has been completed. Once the Admissions Team receive an application, the form will be sent electronically to us and if we can admit your child, the School Admission Team will write an offer letter and give you a start date. This is usually 7 days hence, but generally we can agree to the child starting earlier. If we cannot offer a place, because we have reached our Pupil Admission Number (PAN) for example, the Admissions Team will contact other schools in the area to find the nearest place available.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the School Admission Team on 01522 782030 or email midyearadmissions@lincolnshire.gov.uk
