The Governors will admit children with a statement of special educational needs which names the school.

  1. ‘Looked After Children’, that is, children in local authority care, or previously ‘Looked After’ but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence/child arrangements order or special guardianship order
  2. Children on social or medical grounds, where professionals have clearly identified that the school will best meet the needs of the child. These applications must be accompanied by documentary evidence from appropriate professionals within the Health or Social services.

  4. Children who have a sibling continuing attendance at the school at the time of admission

These applications must be accompanied by form SIF/A available from the school. The completed SIF/A will then be sent to the minister with the form SIF/B verify church allegiance.
  6. Children of worshipping members of any church that is a member of Churches Together in England, this includes the Church of England. These applications must be accompanied by form SIF/A available from the school. The completed SIF/A will then be sent to the minister with the form SIF/B to verify church allegiance
  7. Children of parents/legal guardians of other faiths, or none, who wish their child to be educated in a church school and Christian environment

Tiebreaker

Where there are more applications in any one category, applications will be prioritised on the distance from the address point of the child’s home to the address point of the school (this will be determined by the Local Authority using their standard method as described in this booklet).

Residency Definition

The child’s place of residence is the address of the parent(s) or legal guardian(s) with whom the child spends the majority of time during the school week (parents/legal guardians may be asked to produce evidence of residency/home address at any time during the admissions process).

Parish Boundaries (ecclesiastical parishes)

Definitions of Siblings

The definition of a brother or sister sometimes referred to as a sibling:

  • A brother or sister sharing the same parents
  • A half brother or sister where two children share one common parent
  • A step-brother or step-sister, where two children are related by a parent’s marriage/partnership
  • Adopted children

A brother or sister must be living at the same address when the application is made.

Worshipping Members

For your information, our guidance on the term “worshipping member” is as follows:

At least one of the parents or guardians of the child is regarded by the priest/minister/worship leader as part of the worshipping community at the church/worship centre. This would not necessarily mean that the parent is a “Member” in a technical sense (e.g. through baptism, confirmation or electoral roll) but would imply a pattern of attendance at worship (on Sunday or at other times) that is more than “occasional” and has been sustained for more than a short, very recent period of time.
