ADMISSION TO SCHOOL
Parents/carers of prospective pupils are welcome to visit the school with or without their children. Appointments can be made through the office to be shown around the school by the head teacher, Mrs H Obank.
Children start at Mountnessing C of E Primary School in the September after their fourth birthday. We currently admit 15 children into the main school. This is changing to 30 children in September 2020 as our school is expanding.
All admissions, including mid-year pupil moves, are dealt with by a common application form submitted to the local authority.
All admissions are made through the local authority. This means that parents need only complete one application form that is submitted to the local authority planning and admissions office.
Places are allocated based on the following criteria:
• Looked After Children and previously looked after children
• Children with a sibling attending the school
• Children living in the priority admission area
• Remaining applications In the event of over subscription within any of the above criteria, priority will be determined by straight line distance from home to school, those living closest being given the highest priority.
Exceptional medical circumstances (supported by medical evidence) might override the above.
We require the parents of new pupils to fill in the home/school agreement. You will receive a copy for you to keep and the school will keep a copy too. If you have lost your form, please download a new form
