Admissions

In the case of St Andrew’s Benn Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School, the admission authority is the Governing Body.  Therefore, the Governing Body is responsible for setting and publishing the admission arrangements including the criteria for dealing with over subscription.  Our standard number for admissions in school is currently 45 per year group.  Our admissions policy outlines procedures in the event of over subscription.

 

Foundation Unit

The Foundation Unit is made up of our Nursery and Reception aged children

 

Nursery Admissions

Children are admitted the term after they turn 3, and attend for 3 hours either every morning or afternoon.  We do home visits before children start so we can discuss your child and make the move to nursery as easy as possible for them.  Application forms for Nursery are available from the school office.

If you would like to find out if you are eligible for 30 hours of free childcare, please follow this link https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk/

 

Reception Admissions

Children may start school at St Andrew's Benn C. of E. Primary School at the age of four, providing they will become five before the end of the school year ie 31st August.

Admission of children in other year groups is currently arranged with the Head teacher and approved by the Governing Body.  Application forms must be sent to Warwickshire Admissions to start the process.  Alternatively you can contact Admissions on 01926 743039.

 

Starting School

All prospective pupils are invited into school for an induction programme during the summer term.  Parents are invited to a ‘new parents’ evening during the summer term and are also welcome to visit at other times by arrangement with the Headteacher.
