Admission Arrangements

Please follow this link to our Policies page to see all applicable admissions policies and processes

Binfield CE Primary School (VA) is a Voluntary Aided Primary School. As such, the Governing Body is the admissions authority for the school. The school is a partner in the coordinated admissions arrangements for primary admissions in Bracknell Forest LA.  All the dates and processes of application and consideration will conform to the Bracknell Forest LA’s Coordinated Admissions Scheme, which will be published when finalised and will then be common to all schools within the LA.

Applications for a place at the school should be made on the Common Application Form (CAF) provided by the Bracknell Forest LA.

The Governors’ Admission Policy follows Bracknell Forest and the Oxford Diocese recommendations and is as follows:

1. Looked after children
2. Children whose parents are members of staff
3.Children with a normal home address in the designated area
4. Children who have a sibling or siblings at the school
5. All other children whose parents have chosen this school

If the school does not have places for all the children in one of the above categories, priority will be given to children who fulfil more than one of the admission criteria.  After this, if there are still insufficient places, and no distinction can be made between the applicants, a final decision will be made on the radial distance between the home and the school.  For full details please read the full policy.
