The Governors will admit pupils to the school on the basis of the Local Education Authority criteria, which are:
Up to the standard number of the school, currently at 105 per year group.
The 8 criteria that the Authority use when defining the priority for admission:
Children in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, a local authority and children who were looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a residence order or special guardianship order).
Children living in the priority area who have a brother or sister at the school at the time of admission.
Children living in the priority area who have a brother or sister at the partner infant school at the time of admission.
Other children living in the priority area.
Children from outside the priority area who have a brother or sister at the school at the time of admission.
Children from outside the priority area who attended the partner infant school immediately prior to transfer
Children living outside the priority area who have a brother or sister at the partner infant school at the time of admission.
Other children from outside the priority area.
Where admission to the school is not possible because a year group is full, the parents will be advised to contact the Admissions Service of the Local Education Authority.
TRANSFER FROM INFANT SCHOOL
We have very close links with our Infant partners to ensure that each child makes good educational progress on transfer to Junior school.
Infant children are invited to Bilton C of E Junior during the Summer Term. Year 3 teachers visit the Infant schools to meet their new pupils. Meetings are also arranged between Year 2 and 3 teachers to exchange information to ensure a smooth transfer for each child.
We have particularly close links with Bilton Infant and Bawnmore Infant Schools. The Headteachers of the schools meet regularly to ensure continuity for pupils. Joint training days for staff and governors are arranged to share expertise and learn new skills.
TRANSFER TO SECONDARY SCHOOL
We aim to provide each child with the self-esteem, confidence and skills to enjoy and contribute to his/her secondary education. Close links are maintained with local secondary schools including visits and shared curriculum initiatives to promote a smooth transfer for every child. In Year 6 the children have a class teacher but are also taught by all the members of the Year 6 teaching team in preparation for life at secondary school.
