  1. Key Information
  2. Admissions


Snarestone Cof E (A) Primary School recognises the right of parents to express a preference of the particular school that they would like their child(ren) to attend. The Governing Body, which is responsible for admissions to this school, have agreed to follow the principles described in the Co-ordinated Scheme for Admission to Primary Schools.

Places are allocated in accordance with the Governing Body's policy. The initial admission may not exceed the Pupil Admission Number (PAN), which is currently set at 15.

Current legislation requires that the number of pupils in a Key Stage 1 class should not exceed 30. This may influence the number of places available in any one year.
