Easton Garford C of E School: admissions information

​Easton Garford C of E School, New Road, Easton On The Hill, PE9 3NN

Oversubscription criteria

The governing body are the admission authority in this voluntary aided school and are therefore responsible for all admissions. Places will be allocated to pupils who have a statement of SEN that 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:

  1. Looked After Children - that is, children in local authority care, or a child who was previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence, or special guardianship order.
  2. Children where professionals have clearly identified, on social or medical grounds, that the school will best meet the needs of the child. These applications must be accompanied by documentary evidence from appropriate professionals within the Health or Social services.
  3. Children living with their parent(s)/legal guardian(s) in the ecclesiastical parishes of the church of All Saints, Easton on the Hill; the church of St. Mary’s, Duddington and the church of St. Andrew’s, Collyweston (see residency definition below).
  4. Children who have a sibling attending the school at the time of admission of the child (see sibling definition below).
  5. Children of worshipping members of any church that is located in the ecclesiastical parishes of the church of All Saints, Easton on the Hill; the church of St. Mary’s,Duddington and the church of St. Andrew’s, Collyweston; and that is a church of Churches Together in England (this includes the Church of England). These applications must be accompanied by form SIF/A available from the school. The completed SIF/A will then be sent to the minister with form SIF/B to verify church allegiance.
  6. Children of worshipping members of any church that is a member of Churches Together in England (this includes the Church of England). These applications must be accompanied by form SIF/A available from the school. The completed SIF/A will then be sent to the minister with form SIF/B to verify church allegiance.
  7. Children of parent(s)/legal guardian(s) of other faiths, or none, who wish their child to be educated in a church school and Christian environment.

Tiebreaker

Where there are more applications in any one category than there are places available, applications will be prioritised on the distance from the address point of the child’s home to the address point of the school. Distances will be determined by the local authority, using their standard method as described in the information for parents.

Definition of residency

The child’s place of residence is the address of the parent or legal guardian with whom the child spends the majority of time during the school week (parents/legal guardians may be asked to produce evidence of residency/home address at any time during the admissions process).

Parish boundaries

For parish boundaries, please consult the map of parishes available at the school or visit http://www.achurchnearyou.com - put in your postcode, click on where you live and the name of your parish will be shown.

Definition of siblings

The definition of a brother or sister (sometimes referred to as a sibling):

  • a brother or sister sharing the same parents
  • a half-brother or half-sister where the 2 children concerned share one common parent
  • a step-brother or step-sister, where two children are related by a parent’s marriage/partnership
  • adopted children.

A brother or sister must be living at the same address when the application is made.
