Admission to School: Criteria for 2019 and 2020

In April, 2013, we converted to an Academy, however our policy for admissions continues to follow the local Authority Guidelines: The Standard Admissions Entry Number for Stoke Bishop Church of England Primary School is 60. Where the demand for places exceeds the number of places which we have available, then places will be allocated in the following order:Where a child is in the care of the local authority, or there are special educational needs or a health care plan that regard the placement as essential.

Where there are siblings already in attendance at the school and who will still be in attendance at the beginning of the next school year.

Geographical considerations. Priority will be given to children who live nearest the school or furthest from an alternative school where there are places available.

Applications for the annual September Reception intake are administrated by Bristol City Council Schools Admissions. Please see the link below to follow the online procedure.

Arrangements for Disabled Pupils

Every classroom is carpeted and has curtains which are of benefit to children with hearing impairments. All internal steps have ‘nosings’ which help to distinguish different levels. There is handrail provision on both sides of the main corridor steps. Under the present classroom arrangements, it is possible for children to enter the classrooms with a wheelchair. No ramps or chair lifts exist within the school. There are ramped routes into and out of the school building. There are three disabled toilets in the school.
