Admissions for September 2018
Princess Frederica is a Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School. The responsibility for the admission of pupils rests with the Governing Board.
The Governing Board consulted on new admission arrangements for the academic year from September 2018 until July 2019. The consultation started on Friday 16th December 2016 and ended on Tuesday 31st January 2017.
The Governing Board has now determined the admission arrangements as those consulted on. The main changes are to the criteria that will be used to allocate places where the School is oversubscribed. The new criteria are (in order):
A. A looked-after child or a child who was previously looked-after but then became subject to an adoption, child arrangements or special guardianship order.
B. A child of a staff member employed for two or more years before the application or recruited to fill a vacancy for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage.
C. A child with a sibling who will be attending the School at the date of admission of the applicant (‘sibling’ includes a half-sibling, step-sibling, adopted sibling, foster sibling or the child of the partner of the parent or carer of the child applying for a place, where both children are living in the same family unit at the same address).
D. A child who lives in the parishes served by St Mark’s Church on Bathurst Gardens and St Martin’s Church on Mortimer Road. A map of the parish boundaries and a list of roads which fall within the boundaries are available from the School website or office. Preference within this category will be given in the following order:
Governors define regular attendance as attendance at a weekly service on at least 26 occasions in each of the two years preceding the application. This must be confirmed by the religious leader of each place of worship attended during that period using the Supplementary Information Form (SIF) available from the School website or office.
E. All other applicants.
