St Chad's CE (VA) Primary School

The Planned Admission Number for admission into the Reception year in September 2018 is 30.

The school will admit children with statements of Special Educational Needs or Education Health and Care plans in which the school is named on the statement or Education Health and Care plan.

Where the number of applications received during the normal admissions round exceeds the admission number of the school, the governing body will apply the following criteria in strict order of priority:

  1. Pupils who are in public care (Children who are 'Looked After') or pupils who were previously looked after but ceased to be so because they became adopted or became subject to a residence or special guardianship order.

  2. A child who has a brother or sister (including half, step, or adoptive brother or sister) attending the school at the proposed date of admission.

  3. A child or whose parents / guardians are regular worshipping members at St Chad's Church, Hove Edge.

  4. A child or whose parents / guardians are regular worshipping members of the Church of England not mentioned in Priority 3, but within the Brighouse and Elland Deanery.

  5. Children whose parents or carers are regular worshipping members of another Christian Church recognised by Churches Together in England within the Brighouse and Elland Deanery, who are a regular worshipper.

  6. Other children.

A 'Supplementary information form' (SIF) to provide confirmation of Christian commitment is available from the school.

A regular worshipper (Priority 3, 4 and 5) is a person who worships at least once per month. The worshipper could be one or both parents or the child who is regularly involved in a church activity which includes an element of worship. Attendance must be for a period of at least one year prior to the closing date for applications.

A map showing the ecclesiastical parish boundary(ies) is available at the school.

If there are more applications in a particular category than the number of places available, the remaining places will be offered to the children whose permanent address is nearest to the school. Distance will be calculated using a straight line measurement.

Notes

For the sibling criterion to be applicable, one of the following conditions must exist:

  • brother and / or sister to be permanently resident at the same address,

  • step brother and / or sister to be permanently resident at the same address (to include half brothers / sisters).

The child's home address will be deemed to be a residential property at which the person or persons with parental responsibility for the child reside(s) at the closing date for receiving applications for admission to the school.

Where parental responsibility is held by more than one person and those persons reside in separate properties, the child's ordinary place of residence will be deemed to be that address which is used for correspondence related to Child Benefit payment.
