Chacombe C of E Voluntary Aided Primary Academy: admissions information

​Chacombe C of E Voluntary Aided Primary Academy, Thorpe Road, Chacombe, OX17 2JA

Oversubscription criteria

When there are more applications than there are places available, the governors will admit pupils according to the following criteria which are listed in order of priority. (The governors will give priority to children with a statement of Special Educational Needs which names the school.)

  1. Applications for ‘looked after children’ or previously ‘looked after’, but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence or special guardianship order: that is, children in Local Authority care, as defined in the Admissions Code, are given priority.
  2. The Governors may admit up to one pupil per year group on social or medical grounds, where professionals have clearly identified that the academy can fully meet the needs of the pupil. These applications must be accompanied by documentary evidence from appropriate professionals within the Health or Social Care services that this school and no other can meet these needs and why another school would not be suitable. This decision would be made by the Admissions panel.
  3. Children living with their parents/legal guardians in the village of Chacombe.
  4. Children of worshipping members of any church which is located in the Chenderit benefice and 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 form SIF/B to verify church allegiance.
  5. Children who have an older sibling attending the school at the time of admission of the younger child (see sibling definition below).
  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 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 this 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 the information to parents).

Definition of residency

The child’s place of residence is the address of the parent or legal guardian 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.)

Definition 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 half sister where 2 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.
