It is our policy to offer a place to children in the September before their fifth birthday. All Telford&Wrekin schools operate a policy of one point of entry each year to the Reception class. We do not have an on-site Nursery class.
The school can accommodate 60 children each year. This number is called a Standard Number or PAN. Parents wanting a place for their child should register their child’s name and a place will be confirmed in the term prior to the academic year in which they are due to start. The Local Authority is responsible for admissions and the following criteria will be used to determine places should
applications exceed the Standard Number. Please go to www.telford.gov.uk/admissions for full details of the Admissions process
Children who live in the school’s defined attendance area. If places are unavailable for all of these local children, then places will be given first to:
- Those children in the attendance area who will have on the day of admission a brother(s) or sister(s) at the school; and then
- Those children who live in the rural part of the attendance area outside the Telford Town boundary i.e. part of the civil parishes of Wrockwardine and Eyton-upon-the-Weald-Moors (including Allscott, Aston, Charlton, Cluddley, Eyton-upon-the-Weald-Moors, Leaton, Overley, Rushmoor, Walcott and Wrockwardine); and then
- Other children in the attendance area on the basis of relative proximity and ease of access to the school as measured by the shortest available walking route between home and school.
- Any places which remain available will then be allocated to applicants in priority order.
There may be other exceptions which are detailed in the LA admissions booklet and on their website. These include:
a) Health reasons, in exceptional circumstances where there is written medical evidence that admission to a particular school is essential for the medical wellbeing of a child; and then
b) to children who will have, on the day of admission, a brother(s) or sister(s) at the
school; and then
c) on the basis of relative proximity and ease of access to the school as measured by the
shortest available walking route between home and school.
