St John's CE (VA) Primary School, Rishworth

The number of children that can be admitted to the Reception class each year is currently 20. The criteria below will be used in order of priority when allocating places.

  1. Pupils who are in public care, or children 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. Children with brothers and sisters

    1. registered as pupils of the school at the proposed date of admission and whose parents regularly and frequently worship at St Bartholomew's or St John's Churches,

    2. registered as pupils of the school at the proposed date of admission and whose parents regularly and frequently worship at other Churches (within the parish) whose denomination is not necessarily Church of England,

      (In all cases, a supporting letter from the Parish Priest will be required as evidence.)

    3. registered as pupils of the school at the proposed date of admission.

  3. Children whose parents

    1. regularly and frequently worship at St Bartholomew's or St John's Churches,

    2. regularly and frequently worship at other Churches (within the parish) whose denomination is not Church of England.

    (In all cases, a supporting letter from the Parish Priest will be required as evidence.)

  4. Proximity of the child's home to the school, as measured by a straight line measurement from the pupil's home to the closest designated school gate.

    Distances will be calculated using the Local Authority's Geographical Information System (GIS). To ensure consistency, all measurements will be carried out by the Local Authority's GIS and no other method of measuring distance will be considered.

    Each property has a coordinate taken from Ordnance Survey ADDRESS-POINT data. This is the point from which distance measurements will be taken from.
