St Loys Church of England Primary School: admissions information

​St Loys Church of England Primary School, Milthorpe, Weedon Lois, NN12 8PP

Oversubscription criteria

Children with a statement of Special Educational Needs which names St. Loys will be admitted.

When there are more applications than there are places available governors will admit pupils according to the following priority order.

  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 be accompanied by documentary evidence from the local authority or relevant agency.
  3. Children of parents/guardians resident in the ecclesiastical parish* of Weedon Lois, served by the church of St Mary and St Peter, with Weston and including the hamlet of Plumpton (see residency definition).
  4. Children of parents/guardians living in the ecclesiastical parish* of Wappenham, served by the church of St. Mary The Virgin, who are worshipping members of the Church of England or another member of Churches Together in England. Applications should be accompanied by a reference 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.
  5. Children who have a sibling who will be continuing to attend the school at the time of admission (see sibling definition).
  6. Children of a parent(s)/legal guardian(s) who are worshipping members of the Church of England or another member of Churches Together in England, through attendance. Applications should be accompanied by a reference 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 a 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, applications will be prioritised on the distance from the address point of the child’s home to the address point of the school. This will be determined on a straight line basis using a geographical information system.

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.)

Worshipping member

For your information, our guidance on the term "worshipping member" is as follows: at least one of the parents or guardians of the child is regarded by the priest / minister / worship leader as part of the worshipping community at the church / worship centre. This would not necessarily mean that the parent is a "member" in a technical sense (e.g. through baptism, confirmation or electoral roll) but would imply a pattern of attendance at worship (on Sunday or at other times) that is more than “occasional” and has been sustained for more than a short, very recent period of time.

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 2 children 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.
