Starting School – Admission into Foundation Stage 2

The school has an admission limit of 60 pupils to Foundation Stage 2. Applications for admission must be made to the Local Authority.  The online application process opens annually from October until January.

The school will admit all children with a statement of special educational needs or an Education, Health and Care plan (EHCP) in which the school is named.

Where, after the admission of children with statements of special educational needs or EHCPs naming the school, there are more applications for admission than places remaining available within the admission number, the Governing Body’s Admission Committee has agreed a strict criteria detailed in the Admissions Policy.

At Alderman Cogan’s we work with parents to ensure that the transition from pre-school to school runs as smoothly as possible.  We invite the parents/carers and children to our transition events.  Also we invite nurseries and pre-schools to visit our school and our staff can visit you at home to discuss your child on a more personal basis.

Admissions Consultation – Admission Arrangements for Admission 2020/21

Looked after and previously looked after children are amongst the most vulnerable in our society.  School admission authorities have been required to give looked after children the highest priority in their oversubscription criteria since 2007.  In 2012 this priority was extended to previously looked after children.  The Minister now intends to propose further changes to the code to ensure that children who were previously in state care outside of England, and leave that care as a result of being adopted, also receive highest priority for admission into a school in England.  Therefore the Minister requests that all schools give these children second highest priority in their oversubscription criteria.  This only covers a small number of children.   We are proposing a change in our planned admission criteria for 2020/21 and are beginning a period of consultation during which the views of interested parties are sought.  The planned admission number for Foundation Stage 2 in September 2020 is 60.  This consultation runs from 15th October until 26th November.  Please click on the links below for further information and details about how you can let us know your views.
