Admissions

Admissions Policy

 

The Governors' policy on Admissions is that in the event of a year being oversubscribed, i.e. there is an excess of demand over availability of places, then applications will be considered and approval or otherwise granted on the following criteria in priority order:-

           

  1. Pupils with a Statement of Special Education Need which names St Paul’s C E Primary School or where, following consultation with the governors, the LA believes that the pupil’s special educational need would be met best by attendance at St Paul’s C E Primary School
  2. Pupils in the “Looked After” system and children who are adopted, where the approved agencies, in consultation with the Governors, agree that St Paul’s C E Primary school is the most appropriate school to meet the child’s needs.

  3. Pupils whose principal address is within the ecclesiastical parish of St. Paul’s Church, Tupsley and who have a sibling in school at the time of entry.
  4. Pupils whose principal address is within the ecclesiastical parish of St. Paul’s Church, Tupsley and who request a ‘church place’ supported by the appropriate church minister. Faith in this context is defined as being an adherent to the Christian Trinity.
  5. Pupils whose principal address is within the ecclesiastical parish of St. Paul’s Church, Tupsley and who have the shortest available walking route to school as measured by the LA.
  6. Pupils whose principal address is outside the ecclesiastical parish of St. Paul’s Church, Tupsley and who have a sibling in school at the time of entry.
  7. Pupils whose principal address is outside the ecclesiastical parish of St. Paul’s Church, Tupsley and whose family is actively involved in the worship, life and work of a Christian faith church. This application must be supported by the appropriate church minister.
  8. Pupils whose principal address is outside the ecclesiastical parish of St. Paul’s Church, Tupsley and who have the shortest available route to school as measured by the LA.

 

Parents of children who are refused admission have the right of appeal within 14 days of the decision by writing to the Clerk to the Appeal Committee c/o the School.
