You must complete a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) if you would like your child to be considered under either of the Faith criteria (4 or 7). The SIF is available from the school and must be returned to the school by 15 January 2021.

The governors will admit children with an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan which names the school.

Oversubscription criteria

If the school receives more applications that there are places available, the oversubscription criteria will be applied in the following order:

  1. Looked after children and previously looked after children
  2. The Governors will admit children on social or medical grounds, where professionals have clearly identified that the school will best meet the needs of the child. These applications must always be accompanied by documentary evidence from appropriate professionals within the Health or Social Services
  3. Children of parent(s) or legal guardian(s) resident in the ecclesiastical parishes of Newbottle with Charlton and Aynho who have a sibling who will be continuing to attend the school at the time of admission of the child
  4. Children of parent(s) or legal guardian(s) resident in the ecclesiastical parishes of Newbottle with Charlton and Aynho who are worshipping members of the Church of England or any other Church that is a member of Churches Together in England. Applications should be accompanied by a reference form (SIF-A) available from the school. The completed SIF-A form will be sent to the minister and he or she will be asked to complete the SIF-B form, confirming the statements on SIF-A
  5. Children of parent(s) or legal guardian(s) resident in the ecclesiastical parishes of Newbottle with Charlton and Aynho
  6. Children of parent(s) or legal guardian(s) outside the ecclesiastical parishes of Newbottle with Charlton and Aynho who have a sibling who will be continuing to attend the school at the time of admission of the child
  7. Children of parent(s) or legal guardian(s) outside the ecclesiastical parishes of Newbottle with Charlton and Aynho who are worshipping members of the Church of England or any church that is a member of Churches Together in England. Applications should be accompanied by a reference form (SIF-A) available from the school. The completed SIF-A form will be sent to the minister and he/she will be asked to complete the SIF-B form, confirming the statements on SIF-A
  8. Children of members of staff who have been employed by the school for at least two years or who have been appointed to meet a particular skills shortage

Tie–breaker

Where there is a tie for places in any one criterion, applications will be determined by random allocation carried out by individuals independent from the school.

Residency definition

The child’s place of residence is the address of the parent or legal guardian with whom the child spends the majority of time during the school week. Parent(s) or legal guardian(s) may be asked to produce evidence of residency or home address at any time during the admissions process.

Definition of siblings

The definition of a brother or sister sometimes referred to as a sibling:

  • a brother or sister sharing the same parents 
  • a half-brother or half-sister where 2 children share one common parent
  • a step-brother or step sister, where two children are related by a parent’s marriage
  • adopted children

A brother or sister must be living at the same address when the application is made.

Multiple births

Multiple births will be given one admissions number. If the last pupil to be offered a place within the school’s published admission number (PAN) is a multiple birth, any further sibling can be admitted. This may raise the intake number above the PAN but this will remain unchanged so that no other pupil will be admitted until a place becomes available.

Worshipping member

At least one of the parents or guardians of the child is regarded by the priest, minister or worship leader as part of the worshipping community at the church or worship centre. This would not necessarily mean that the parent is a “member” in a technical sense (e.g. through baptism, confirmation or electoral roll) but would imply a pattern of attendance at worship (on Sunday or at other times) that is more than “occasional” and has been sustained for more than a short, very recent period of time.
