Admissions

Deciding which is the right school to apply to for your child’s education is very important. We are a growing school right in the centre of Jennett’s Park housing development.

As a Voluntary Aided school, all admissions into our nursery classes are made by the governing body against clear admissions criteria, which is available in our Nursery Admissions Policy.

For admissions into our Reception classes and all other year groups within the school, we work closely with Bracknell Forest Council who manage the process of application in line with our School Admissions Policy.

The admissions arrangements for the academic year 2018/2019 have now been agreed by the governing body and can be found in the Admissions Policy 2018-19 .

Unfortunately, attendance, or sibling attendance in school, does not guarantee a place in the nursery or main school.

Nursery:

For 2016/17 and 2017/18, we have 52 nursery places (26 morning and 26 afternoon sessions).

We arrange regular tours of our Nursery with our Early Years Leader Mrs Dhillon. Please contact the school office to book your place or to receive an application form.

For the 2017/18 academic year the closing date for all applications is Friday 31st March 2017.

Oversubscription criteria

Our Nursery is very popular and is over-subscribed with a waiting list in place that is updated regularly.  Whilst we try to meet parental preferences regarding morning or afternoon sessions, we cannot guarantee these.  Where there is over-subscription, we give priority according to our published criteria in our Nursery Admissions Policy.

Applications received after the closing date will be considered as late applications and discussed at the next timetabled Governors Admissions Committee, which usually take place in September, January, May and June.

Appeals

Please note that there is no established appeals process for the Nursery class, and numbers are strictly limited due to Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Welfare Requirements. See below for more information on Appeals.

Primary school:

For 2017/18 we have places for:  60 children in Reception, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4 and Year 5 and an intake of 30 for Year 6. Tours with the Head teacher or Leadership Team are available and places can be booked via the school office.

How to apply

We work with Bracknell Forest Council (BFC) as part of the Co-ordinated Admissions Scheme. This means that it manages and administers the admissions process.

If you wish to apply for a Reception place in our school, then you need to contact the BFC Admissions Team to request an Admissions Pack and application form (in September/ October) and you should return the completed form to them. The contact details are:

Closing date for all applications – 15 January 2017

Oversubscription criteria

Please read our admissions policies very carefully and ensure you understand the oversubscription criteria. Please also make sure you meet all published closing dates; failure to do so will mean your application will be considered after all other ‘on time’ applications. The designated area for admission to Jennett’s Park can be viewed here.

Appeals

There is an established appeals process if you are refused a place in the main Primary school (all classes except Nursery). The Diocese manage our appeals and you should contact the school directly for an Appeals Pack. Unfortunately the School is not able to discuss any appeal with you or advise you in any way.

We are not allowed to reserve places for families who are intending to move into Jennett’s Park in the foreseeable future.
