The Governors follow the guidelines set by the County and the following criteria are used when determining which children should be given a place.
- Children living in the normal area served by the school – including those who live in an area governed by a different local education authority.
- Children who do not live in the normal area served by the school but who have brothers or sisters already attending the school at the time of admission.
- Other children whose parents have requested a place.
If choices have to be made between children who meet all the criteria mentioned in nos 2 and 3, the children who live nearest to the school – measured by the nearest available route – will be given preference.
Individual pupils who have learning difficulties and/or physical or sensory impairment and whose special educational needs can be best met in the school will also be taken into account.
Derbyshire has a one-point entry system which the school follows.
All children are admitted to our school in September (the school year they are 5 years old)
Parents complete admissions forms on-line. For further information about the admissions process in Derbyshire or to apply on-line please visit the Derbyshire County Council schools pages.
In year admissions can be discussed directly with the Head teacher.
