Admissions

As a community school our admissions policy is decided by Norfolk County Council (Admissions Policy September 2014). All children must start statutory full-time education at the beginning of the term following their fifth birthday. Children born between 1st March and 31st August come into school part-time for the first autumn term and full-time at the beginning of the spring term.

 

The local education authority has set our annual intake figure at 16 children. The area served by the school is: Barwick, Burnham Market, Burnham Norton, Burnham Overy Town, Burnham Overy Staithe, Burnham Thorpe, North Creake, South Creake, Stanhoe and Waterden.

 

If there are more applications than places available, preference will be given to children living nearest the school according to the following rules in this order of priority:

 

1. Children with a statement of special educational needs naming the school.

 

2. Children in public care who are due to start school and live in the area served by the school.

 

3. Children who are due to start school, living in the area served by the school who have a brother or sister attending the school at the time of their admission

 

4. Children who are due to start school, living outside the area served by the school, who have a brother or sister attending the school at the time of their admission.

 

5. Children who are due to start school, living outside the area served by the school, who have no brother or sister at the school.

 

In the event of an unsuccessful application to the school parent/carers may appeal against the decision.
