St Paul’s Church of England Primary School
Caring for all. Growing with God

Admissions

St. Paul’s Church of England Primary School has a distinctive Christian ethos, which is at the heart of the school and provides an inclusive, caring and supportive environment where children learn and flourish in a setting shaped by Christian values.

St Paul’s welcomes applications from all members of the community and we ask all parents to respect the Christian ethos of our school and its importance to our community.

The Governors will admit a maximum of 30 children to each Reception class in any one year. This limit fulfils the Local Authority and National requirements, reflecting the restriction of class sizes to 30 as directed by Central Government.  From September 2015, the school will begin to expand into a two-form entry school.  This means that we will admit a maximum of 60 children to form two classes in each Reception intake from September 2015 onwards.

The school is part of the locally agreed co-ordination scheme and the timescale for applications to be received and processed are those agreed with the Local Authority. Parents must complete The London Borough of Hounslow’s Common Application Form naming this school as one of their preferences. Further information on applying for a school place can be found on the Hounslow council website.

Applicants who wish to be considered for a Foundation Place should also submit a Supplementary Information Form so that Governors can consider their application fully; this can be obtained from the school office or The London Borough of Hounslow. Applicants for Foundation Places will be required to supply evidence of their commitment and attendance at church on this form. (This form must be returned to the school office by the closing date as published by the London Borough of Hounslow).

Details of our current admission criteria and the Supplementary Information Form can be downloaded below.
