Admission Arrangements 2021/2022
Admissions Arrangements 2020/21
Following a public consultation which outlined proposals to alter the 20/21 Admission Arrangements applying for Norton Fitzwarren Church School, the Academy Directors have now met and agreed the final admission arrangements for the 2020-21 school year. These are now formally published on the School website and will remain so until 31 July 2021 and will not be altered unless for matters of legal compliance.
Concerns regarding legal compliance, or whether the arrangements are fair and reasonable should initially be raised via the School Office, but may be escalated to the Education Funding Agency where the matter is not resolved locally. Full contact details are set out in Part 6 of the School Admission Arrangements.
Norton Fitzwarren Church School is operating with classroom limits rather than specific year groups.
In Key Stage 2 (Years 3-6) the classroom limits are set at 30 which takes account of the maximum number of children we can accommodate within the room and effectively deliver the appropriate curriculum. Admission Limits will be set to allow the classes to reach the limit of 30.
In Key Stage 1, (Years 1-2 and Year 2/3 mixed class) the classroom limits are set at 30 which is the maximum number of children that the school is allowed to teach within the Infant Class Size Legislation.
In Foundation stage we have a Published Admission Number of 45. This provides a pure class of Reception children and a Reception, Year 1 mixed class.
As a school we like to maximise parental preference and therefore will review the admission limits regularly to ensure we are offering as many places as possible but will always be within our class limits.
