Admissions

Cambridgeshire County Council Admissions Page

Every year there appears to be a misconception about the school admissions process. Just to clarify, it is directly organised by the Local Authority not the school. As a maintained school we do not create our own admissions policy but instead have to adopt that of Cambridgeshire’s. To apply for a place or to read the aforementioned policy, please click on the following link:

Applying for a school place.

Currently we have a PAN of 60 which means we can only accept that number of children into Reception. This number is agreed upon by the Local Authority and the Full Governing Body. There are many reasons for this decision including careful consideration of the size of communal facilities, staffing levels and budget implications.  We hope to be able to increase our PAN in the forthcoming years. 

If you feel that you would like to appeal a place that has been offered to you, the web address above will also lead you to that area.

Again, if at any point you are worried or confused by the process, please feel free to contact us and we will help to get you to the right person.

Your child will be offered a short induction period so that they can settle into school life within a smaller group. Although we aim to get children into full time education as soon as possible, we sometimes have to review this induction period. Please make sure that your child is fully toilet trained before coming to school and that they have opportunities to play with others without your presence in order to ensure that they are ready for school.
