Admissions

"Exceptional teamwork is at the heart of why this school is outstanding." Ofsted

As a Voluntary Controlled School, the School Governors are required to adopt the Norfolk County Council Policy on School Admissions.

By law, children must start statutory education full time at the beginning of the term following their fifth birthday. Where admission is offered prior to compulsory school age, parents may defer their child’s entry into school until later in that academic year.

In the event of over-subscription for places in Alburgh with Denton CE Primary School the Governors will give preference to children living nearest the school according to the following criteria:

  • Children with a statement of Special Educational Needs naming that school.
  • Children who live within the designated area and:
  • Have a sibling attending the school at the time of their admission.
  • Have a sibling attending the local High school at the time of their admission.
  • Have no sibling attending the school or local High school at the time of their admission.
  • Children who reside outside the designated area and:
  • Have a sibling attending the school at the time of their admission.
  • Have a sibling attending the local High school at the time of their admission.
  • Have no brother or sister attending the school or local High school at the time of their admission.

If you would like to apply for a place at Alburgh with Denton CE Primary School please contact admissions at the local authority.

It is important that you make sure that the local authority has received the application for a place for your child by the deadline set by the local authority.

If you are considering sending your child to Alburgh with Denton CE Primary School please contact Mrs Byer at the school office on 01986 788678 or office@alburgh-with-denton.co.uk for more information.
