Admissions Criteria

All children from Parishes of Temple Grafton, Binton (excluding Binton Brook) and part of the Parish of Exhall, excluding Exhall village are in the priority ‘catchment area’ to attend our school.

In each academic school year there are 15 places available. We welcome children from outside the ‘catchment area’ if there are places available.

The admissions criteria for the school are set by Warwickshire County

Council as follows:-

  1. Children in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, a local authority (under section 22 of the Children Act 1989).
  2. Children living in the priority area who have a sibling at the school at the time of admission.
  3. Other children living in the priority area.
  4. Children from outside the priority who have a sibling at the school at the time of admission.
  5. Other children from outside the priority area.

Within each criteria priority is given in order of the shortest distance between the child’s home and school. Distance is calculated by a straight line measurement from the applicant’s home to the centre point of our school. This applies equally to those living outside the County boundary. Children are admitted to school in the academic year of their fifth birthday.

We are more than happy to show you around our lovely school. We hold open afternoons for parents of prospective children early in the autumn term.
