Admissions Arrangements

Gloucestershire Education Authority is responsible for the admissions of children to schools.

Latest details from GCC can be found here: School admissions scheme, criteria and protocol

Our Published Admissions Number (PAN) is 15 for Reception and Year 1, for Year 2 (and up) it is 20.

In the event of oversubscription priority will be given to children wishing to join older brothers/sisters already attending the school; and then to children with authenticated medical reasons for attending.  Any remaining places will be filled by children having the strongest geographical claim.

Every child has the opportunity to start school in the September following their fourth birthday.  The latest date by which a child must be four is August 31st for a September start. The school’s admission forms should be completed and returned as early as possible and by the end of January in order to request a place for September.

Parents of Reception age children are invited to visit the school during the Spring Term of the year preceding their child’s admission and an Open Evening is held in July, where staff from the school will provide information on the Foundation Stage curriculum and the arrangements for admission.
