The Federation of Church Schools of Shalfleet and Yarmouth

Admissions

INTRODUCTION

The name of the school is Yarmouth Church of England Primary School. The School is a Voluntary Aided School. The Governing Body of Yarmouth England Primary School is the admissions authority. The School’s trust deed of 1854 states that The School was established to provide education for children living in the parish of Yarmouth St James.  A map of the school’s catchment areas are included in the policy. 

THE ADMISSIONS TIMETABLE

The Local Authority operates a timetabled co-ordinated admissions procedure for all Schools in line with Government legislation. The Local Authority will manage the process on behalf of The School according to the scheme which they will publish in their Admissions Booklet for that year but it is still The Governing Body, as the Admission Authority for this school who will offer the available places in line with this policy. The closing date for admission application forms to be received by the Local Authority will be as published in the Local Authority’s Admissions Booklet for that year. Also contained in that booklet will be information on how to complete their application form on-line, dates for notification to parents of admissions decision and the closing dates for accepting places or lodging appeals. In case of any doubt on these dates, please contact the Local Authority or The School. Parents applying who wish to use the Christian Commitment criteria will be asked to complete a Supplementary Information Form (SIF), which must be obtained from The School or from the Local Authority website, completed and returned to The School not later that the closing date set by the Local Authority for school applications to be received. (As it is a paper form that needs to be signed, the SIF is not available for completion on-line.)
