Admissions

This is a school for boys and girls from 4 to 11 years of age and is maintained by Coventry City Council. We are a two form entry school with a published admission number of 60. Should this number be exceeded, we will follow the Local Authority set criteria for admission when offering places.

Places are allocated according to Coventry’s published criteria which are, in priority order:

  1. Children who, at the time of admission, are in the care of a local authority or are provided with accommodation by the authority (looked after children). Also children who were previously looked after but ceased to be so because they were adopted, or became subject to a residence order, child arrangements order or a special guardianship order
    (A looked-after child is defined in Section 22 of the Children Act 1989.)
  2. Children who live in the catchment area served by the school, who have a brother or sister attending the school provided that the brother or sister will continue to attend that school the following year
  3. Other children who live in the catchment area served by the school.
  4. Children living outside the catchment area with a brother or sister who currently attends the school provided that the brother or sister will continue to attend that school the following year;
  5. Children of Staff who have been employed at the school for two or more years at the time of application for the school place; or recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage.
  6. All other children

Nursery admissions

We also have a nursery class and can admit children from the start of the term after they turn 3. We offer morning, afternoon or all-day places including 30-hour funded places.
