Applying for a Place at St Ebbe’s

We have a few places available in most of our classes. The Local Authority is responsible for co-ordinating admissions to our school. It works closely with our school and uses our governing body’s agreed admissions policy (link to policies, supplementary form and catchment area). In September 2012 we increased our Published Admission Number from 45 to 60.

Details of the LA arrangements can be found at . Here you will be able to apply online for a primary school place and complete the Common Application Form (CAF) with an explanation of how parents can express a preference for a school. There is also information on how to apply to move between schools (in-year transfer).

Please contact Jo Williams at the school office if you need any more information or if you would like to arrange for a visit. We would like to invite you to the school so we can show you around. You will also be able to meet the staff team, pupils and library dog and hopefully begin to understand why we are so dedicated to educating children.
