Admission to St Andrew's CE Primary School

Our Open Evening for entry to Reception 2023 is on 9th November at 7pm - we look forward to see you then....no need to book! 

We currently have spaces to join Year 3 and Year 5.  See the In-Year Application section below for details of how to apply.

Admissions Arrangements for September 2023

 

We are a Church of England school and, as such, the Governors at St Andrew's CE Primary School are the admissions authority for the school and Brighton and Hove City Council's School Admissions Team coordinate the process on their behalf.  Parents must apply for Reception Age children through the Council for admission to the school. This should be done via their website Brighton and Hove School Admissions.  Our Published Admissions Number (PAN) for 2023 is 90. 

Prior to making your application, we invite you to visit our school.  Our Open Evening is on 9th November 2022 and we will also have opportunities for parents to visit the school in the Autumn Term.   We feel that this the best way to experience the life of our school during the school day.  Please keep your eye on this page for dates.

Key dates: Closing Date for applications - 15th January 2023. National Offer Day - 17th April 2023.  Offers will be made via email, unless you applied using a paper form, meaning your offer will be sent by post.

Oversubscription Criteria

When the school is oversubscribed, priority for admission will be given to those children who meet our over-subscription criteria (see below).   For details of how places were allocated in 2021 please see Allocation of Places in September 2021.

Applications for a Foundation Place (if you attend Church) 

If you are applying for a Foundation place at our school under criteria 3 or 4 you must also complete our Supplementary Information and Church Reference Form (see below).  Please read the Governors' over-subscription criteria and additional notes carefully and decide which number on the criteria applies to your application.  Please note that the requirement for church attendance has been amended (and approved by the Office of the Schools Adjudicator) due to the Covid-19 pandemic: church attendance will only apply to the period when the church or relevant place of worship or alternative premises have been available for public worship. 

What happens if you apply late?  

It is less likely that you will be offered a place at one of your preferred schools and you may have to wait to get an offer after National Offer Day. If there is a good reason why the school application is late, we will consider it as on time if we receive it by 8th March. You must provide independent supporting evidence of the good reason, or your application will be treated as late.

Please see the Brighton and Hove website: Brighton and Hove - Late Applications
