Admission Arrangements

Following successful consultation between Friday 2nd October 2015 to Friday 13th November  2015, Governors of Church Hill Infant School met on Thursday 26th November 2015 and ratified the revised Admission arrangement for the academic year 2017 – 2018 and subsequent years until further notice.

(See below for details of a further consultation in November 2017 which effects admission arrangements for September 2019 onwards)

A summary of the changes:

  • There is no change to the school’s catchment area.
  • The policy will apply to first time admissions (Foundation Stage) and mid – year (in – year) admissions (Foundation Stage, Year 1 and Year 2) at the school.
  • Admission Policy from September 2017 – For entry from 2017 and all subsequent mid – year (in – year) applications, Church Hill Infant School will continue to adopt Leicestershire County Council’s Policy with the following exceptions:
  • Admission number – The school will NOT go over the admission number (90) for in year and catchment movement. This means if you have moved to the catchment area and the school has reached their admission number for your child’s year group, the school will not overfill beyond 90 and your child will not be admitted into Church Hill infant School
  • First time admissions – The school will NOT go over the admission number (90) for first time admissions. This applies even if you live in the catchment area.
