Admissions to St. Saviour’s School is based upon the criteria that the Governors set each year. This emphasises their wish to provide places for children whose family has a commitment to regular worship. Our Admissions Criteria for Nursery, Reception and all years can be downloaded from this website or collected from the school office.
Places are restricted to 30 per class and there are 8 classes in the school. The maximum admission number is 240.
Admission to the Nursery
Most parents apply for their children to be admitted into the Nursery class. There is one point of entry to this class in September. Places are offered strictly according to the published admissions criteria.
From September 2012, the Nursery provision became part time only (9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon). This is in line with the Government’s commitment to provide 15 hours of quality time for Nursery aged children. Quality care in the afternoon is available for parents who wish to increase their child’s learning experience and a list of fees is available from the school office.
In 2011-12, all 30 places were offered to children who regularly attend family worship at their chosen Christian Church (St. Saviour’s Warwick Avenue or St. Mary’s Paddington Green (Criteria 2), Other Anglican churches or other Christian churches).
There is not automatic right to a place in the Reception class. This is in common with all other schools in England and Wales. However, most children in the Nursery class do move up to Reception as they have very strong references from their Priests or Vicars. It is less likely for new children to be offered places in this class as demand is high.
If you would like to register your child for the Nursery, please submit your request for an Application Form to the school office, either in person, by telephone or email.
The Governors’ Admissions Committee meet and offer places in strict accordance with the School’s published criteria.
Admission to Reception
To apply for a Reception place, you have to complete the Common Application Form (CAF) from your home Local Authority, on line, naming the school as a preference.
You will also need to complete St Saviour’s Supplementary Information Form (SIF) and submit this and the relevant documents needed. If you would like an Application Form please contact the school office, either in person, by telephone or email. This will be sent to you in good time before the closing date.
Places for Reception are offered strictly according to the School’s published admissions criteria.
