If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.
Admission Arrangements (Local Authority) for Community Primary Schools – Rural
Applications are made via the Local Authority and this can be accessed by using the NCC Admissions link in the foot of the page. The Admissions department is on the front page of the website. The Local Authority control both Foundation Stage admissions at age 4 and in year admissions for older children wanting to move into the school. SCHOOL STAFF HAVE NO INPUT INTO THIS, DO NOT SEE WAITING LISTS AND WILL REFER YOU BACK TO THE LOCAL AUTHORITY WITH QUERIES.
The school’s admission number currently stands at 15 for each year group.
Following the allocation of places to pupils who have a statement of special educational needs which names the school as appropriate provision, when there are more applications for places than there are places available, priority will be given in the following order:
Pupils with a statement of Special Educational Needs, which names the school as appropriate provision and children in public care.
Pupils who live in the designated villages and contributory parishes of Wilbarston, Stoke Albany, Weston By Welland, Ashley, Sutton Bassett, Dingley and Brampton Ash.
Pupils with an older brother or sister continuing at the school at the time of admission of the younger child.
Children whose parents express a preference for their child to attend a Church of England school.
Other pupils. If necessary, places in this category will be offered by reference to the child’s home address in relation to the preferred school and also to any other school the child could attend.
Children from other areas can be admitted subject to a place being available.
If the admission number is exceeded within criterion (ii) priority will be given to those who live furthest from the 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.

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.
Exclusion is viewed as a final step in our school and it means that we have failed to secure an improvement in behaviour. We work with families in order to support pupils and to improve poor behaviour. We know a child who is behaving badly is not happy and we will work in partnership with families and other agencies to improve behaviour.
Where the health and safety of staff or other pupils is at risk and/or there are significant incidents of continued poor behaviour which shows no sign of improvement despite the above support and intervention, the school may consider fixed term exclusion or permanent exclusion.All staff and pupils have the right to feel safe and happy in our school.
It can be difficult where the school has a pupil in this position for other parents to understand why it appears that improvement in behaviour of a child is slow. We cannot discuss what arrangements are in place for individual pupils as this would breach their confidentiality. However, it is important to remember that all children are treated the same and all pupils would be given the same opportunity to improve and do better. Some children, especially younger pupils, do not mature at the same rate and don't have the same understanding as others. We have high expectations for all pupils and rest assured there will be alot of work with families to secure improvement behind the scenes.
Please review our Behaviour and Anti-bullying policies in the foot of the page.
Ofsted and Church Inspections
Our last Ofsted visit was in July 2015 where the school was reported as Good. A link to the Ofsted website for ongoing reporting is available here
As a Church of England School we are also inspected by the National Society on behalf of the Peterborough Diocese Board of Education. The school was inspected in March 2015 and a Section 48 SIAMS Report was provided. We were delighted that the inspection agreed with our school evaluation and that the report recognised the hard work of staff, pupils and families in partnership. The main findings are below:
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"
There is "outstanding personal and spiritual development of the pupils"
The headteacher provides clear and determined leadership with supportive staff and governors
Please see the link and read our attached report in full from the foot of the page.
We have a siginicant amount of information related to the Curriculum which can be found on a dedicated page.
We hope you would contact the school in the instance of any issues however, if you feel the need to make a complaint a copy of this Policy can be found in the foot of the page.
A copy of this Policy can be found in the foot of the page.
We aim for our site to be accessible to all. Please see our current plan on the right side bar.
