September 2020 - Children starting in Reception

The School Offers will be made on Thursday 16 April 2020 via the Worcestershire County Council Online system. The emails are automized and can take until midday to come through. 

Please don't forget to accept your place on the system!!

Admissions Policy 2020 to 2021


Whilst we would be delighted to accept all applicants for a place at St Andrew's, current infant class size legislation requires that we can only take 45 pupils in our Reception cohort.  In order to ensure fairness to all, we set a table of criteria, broken down into several categories clearly listed in the Admissions Policy. 

This year our Reception classes are over-subscribed, which requires us to carefully place the applicants into their correct category.  

We are happy to retain your child on the waiting list for the Reception class; if you wish us to do so, please inform the school in writing.

Should you wish to refer this matter to a full appeal then it is your right to do so; however please be aware that the rules set down have been correctly followed and we will therefore defend any appeal that is instigated. 

 It is worth noting that if the Panel accepts that admission of an additional child would breach the infant class size legislation, the Panel will then only allow an appeal if satisfied that our published criteria are unlawful or had not been properly followed for your child (and that he/she would otherwise have been offered a place), or that we have acted unreasonably.

If you wish to appeal, please complete and return the attached form by [add date which is 40 school days earlier than the end of the summer term] and we will arrange for an  Independent Appeals Panel to be convened to hear your appeal.  Please note that you can appeal after this date, but we cannot then guarantee that your appeal will be heard before the start of the new school year.
