Admission Arrangements

Introduction
 
The governing body of All Saints, East Clevedon CEVC Primary School applies the regulations laid down by North Somerset Council in its co-ordinated admissions scheme.
 
Aims and objectives
 
We are an inclusive school that welcomes children from all backgrounds and abilities, of all Faith’s and of none.  Our site can prove challenging for individuals with disabilities because of the age and structure of the school buildings (ie number of steps, terrain and split site locations).
 
The Admission Number
 
The Admission number is the number of children the school can accommodate. The Admission number for our school is 17. We keep this number under review and the governors will apply to change the number if circumstances allow.
 
The staff and governors are committed to not going above the standard number because doing so would be detrimental to the education of the children in Key Stage 2 by allowing the numbers of children to increase beyond 34 in a class.
 
How parents can apply for their child to be admitted to our school
   
The school’s admission arrangements are dealt with in conjunction with North Somerset Council’s Co-ordinated Admission Scheme for primary admissions for the current academic year. The school will follow the definitions, procedures and timescales included with the Scheme.

Currently, children enter school in the academic year they become five. There is one admissions date per year, early in September (i.e. at the start of the school year). Therefore, parents who would like their child to be admitted to this school during the year their child is five should ensure that they complete the necessary application form.
 
The School have adopted the School Admission Arrangements and New Intake Over- Subscription Criteria for North Somerset Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools, as issued by North Somerset Council.
 
 
Admission appeals
 
If parents wish to appeal against a decision to refuse entry, they can do so by applying to North Somerset Council. Full details of the appeals procedure will be sent if the preferred school place is not offered. An independent appeals panel would then meet to consider all appeals by parents who have been refused a place at our school and who wish to appeal against this decision. An appeals panel decision is binding for all parties concerned. If the appeals panel decides that we should admit a child to our school, then we will accept this and continue to do everything that we can to provide the best education for all of the children in our school. Further information and guidance on appeals is available from the School Admissions and Transport Team on the details above, and on the North Somerset Council website http://www.n-somerset.gov.uk/Education/admissions/Pages/Appeals-faq.aspx.
