Welcome to all of our prospective parents, we hope that you find our website informative and that it supports you in making a choice of school for your child.
Admissions to Reception
During the autumn term preceding your child’s application we invite prospective parents to visit the school, which provides you with the opportunity to look around the building and find out more information. Although we have now completed our annual school visits, we still welcome individual visits to the school to look around and meet the Headteacher. Please contact the school office to arrange a suitable time.
If you would like to visit the school, please call 01925-445391 or send an email to the school office: firstname.lastname@example.org
We also require a completed Supplementary Information form to be handed in or sent via email for all children applying for a place in Reception class. A copy is available to view further down this page and can be downloaded for you to complete. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions and we hope to see you and your child soon.
The school follows the agreed timetable and guidance for admissions and the appeal process/timetable as published by the Local Authority which can be found here. Places at St Philip’s are then allocated according to our admissions criteria which can be found at the foot of the page.
The Admission process then begins according to the Local Authority timescale and guidance. If you require a place at St Philip’s it is important that you put the school as your first preference on the form then return it to the Local Authority by the set date. Places will then be allocated according to our admissions criteria and within the timescale detailed by the Local Authority.
Admissions to Years 1-6
Occasionally, a place may become available in our older year groups. If you are interested in a place for a child in Year 1 – Year 6 please contact the Local Authority to enquire if we have any vacancies within a class. (01925 443322 Monday to Friday between 8am-6pm or email@example.com). The Local Authority will then liaise with us to officially secure a place. School will then contact you to arrange a start date.
