Newbottle and Charlton CEVA Primary School: admissions information

​Newbottle and Charlton CEVA Primary School, Green Lane, Charlton, OX17 3DN

Oversubscription criteria

When there are places available, the governors will admit pupils according to the following criteria which are listed in order of priority. The governors will admit children with a statement of Special Educational Needs which names the school.

  1. A ‘looked after child’ or a child who was previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence, or special guardianship order. A looked after child is a child who is (a) in the care of a local authority, or (b) being provided with accommodation by a local authority in the exercise of their social services functions (see the definition in section 22(1) of the Children Act 1989).
  2. The governors will admit children on social or medical grounds, where professionals have clearly identified that the school will best meet the needs of the child. These applications must always be accompanied by documentary evidence from appropriate professionals within the Health or Social Services.
  3.  Children of parent(s)/legal guardian(s) resident in the ecclesiastical parishes of Newbottle with Charlton and Aynho who have a sibling who will be continuing to attend the school at the time of admission of the child.
  4. Children of parent(s)/legal guardian(s) resident in the ecclesiastical parishes of Newbottle with Charlton and Aynho who are worshipping members of the Church of England or any other Church that is a member of Churches Together in England. Applications should be accompanied by a reference form (SIF-A) available from the school. The completed SIF-A form will be sent to the minister and he/she will be asked to complete the SIF-B form, confirming the statements on SIF-A.
  5. Children of parent(s)/legal guardian(s) resident in the ecclesiastical parishes of Newbottle with Charlton and Aynho.
  6. Children of parent(s)/legal guardian(s) outside the ecclesiastical parishes of Newbottle with Charlton and Aynho who have a sibling who will be continuing to attend the school at the time of admission of the child.
  7. Children of parent(s)/legal guardian(s) outside the ecclesiastical parishes of Newbottle with Charlton and Aynho who are worshipping members of the Church of England, or any church that is a member of Churches Together in England. Applications should be accompanied by a reference form (SIF-A) available from the school. The completed SIF-A form will be sent to the minister and he/she will be asked to complete the SIF-B form, confirming the statements on SIF-A. 
  8. Children of members of staff who have been employed by the school for at least two years or who have been appointed to meet a particular skills shortage.
  9. Any other children.

Tiebreaker

Where there is a tie for places in any one category, applications will be determined by random allocation. Each child will be given a number. These numbers will be folded and put into a covered box. A person, independent of the school, will withdraw the requisite number of places to be allocated. A second person, who is also independent of the school will observe the whole process. These independent persons shall be representatives from the Diocesan Board or the county admissions committee.

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. (Parent(s)/legal guardian(s) may be asked to produce evidence of residency/home address at any time during the admissions process.)

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

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