School admissions arrangements for children with SEND

The published admission number (PAN) for Reception is 15.

Places will be allocated to pupils who have a statement of SEN or an EHC Plan that names the school as the appropriate provision. When there are more applications for places than

There are places available, priority will be given in the following order:

  1. Looked After Children and all previously Looked After Children (see paragraph 6.1 for definition of ‘Looked After Children’).
  2. Children with a sibling link (see paragraph 6.3 for definition of ‘sibling’) continuing at the school at the time of the admission of the younger child.
  3. Children who live closer to the preferred school than any other school.
  4. Other children.

Distance Tiebreaker
If the admission number is exceeded within criterion 3, priority will be given to those who live furthest from their nearest alternative school. If the admission number is exceeded within any other criterion, priority will be given to those who live closest to the school.
Measurements are carried out in a straight line basis from the child’s home address to the address point of the school using NNC’s GIS System. 
In the case where multiple applications for the same shared dwelling occurs (eg. Flats), a randomiser (will be used to decide the priority in which the pupils within the shared dwelling are selected in the event of a tie or where two distances are equal. The random allocation process will be subject to independent verification.

  • Christian Values permeate all aspects of the school's life which has a significant impact on the lives of the pupils.

  • There are positive relationships, respect and care between all members of the school community

  • There are "happy children, who love to come to school and enjoy learning"

Behaviour & Anti-bullying

As a school our expectations of behaviour are high; we expect pupils to behave around school and when we take them out of school. Our children expect good behaviour from one another and it is rare that behaviour of pupils falls below what we would expect.

We reward effort of pupils and perseverance in our school. Good behaviour is expected and not usually rewarded. However, pupils are rewarded with house points and weekly certificates for being a good role model to others or exemplifying our Christian values in specific ways. Our  House Captains also choose members of their own houses to award certificates to for similar reasons. 

Our policy explains how we reward consistently good standards of behaviour in order to promote the highest standards and how we will deal with incidents when our expectations are not met. Our behaviour policy reflects our Christian ethos and values in action. Children should always know that their behaviour is their responsibility but also that they can be forgiven and start again if they are able to say sorry and make amends.
