Admissions

Transition Day for Year 6 pupils transferring to secondary schools will be Tuesday 4th July 2017.

Admissions Criteria (summary)

2. Children who have a sibling living in the same household who currently attend the school and who will continue to do so on the date of admission. A sibling refers to a brother or sister, half brother or sister with one parent in common, adopted brother or sister.

2.2. Sibling - A sibling is defined as a child of the same parent either by birth, marriage or adoption, whose normal place of residence is at the same address. The child of partners may be considered as a sibling when the partners live at the same address and have cohabited in a permanent exclusive relationship (as if they were partners by marriage or civil partners) for a minimum of two years.

3. Children living nearest to the school. Distance will be measured in a straight line from the point set by Ordnance Survey at the child’s home address to the main school gate at Sidmouth Drive (co-ordinates 510184, 186161) using a computerised mapping system.
