ADMISSIONS INFORMATION

 

We always welcome new members to our school family.  If you are thinking of joining us, please contact the school office to arrange a visit to help you make your decision. Our Admissions Policy below has full details of our admission criteria and our Supplementary Information Form can also be downloaded below.

 

Grayswood CE Primary School highly values its Christian ethos, its close links with All Saints Church, the Diocese of Guildford and The Good Shepherd Trust.  We provide a happy and caring Christian environment, where children are active participants in their learning and are challenged to realise their full potential both intellectually and socially. We welcome all children and their families to the school.  We ask all parents applying for a place to respect and be in sympathy with the school’s Christian ethos and its importance to the school community.

 

The official Published Admission Number (PAN) for the school is 30.

 

As a Church of England Voluntary Aided school our Governors are responsible for setting the policy and ensuring its implementation. The school admits children in the September of the academic year in which they are five years old. However if parents, feel that summer born children should defer full time entry or attend part-time please discuss this with our Headteacher.
