If your child will be starting school in September please see the link below. We follow Warwickshire LA's co-ordinated Admissions scheme.
The Parishes of Shipston-on-Stour, Barcheston, Honington, Idlicote and Tidmington, the part of the Parish of Stretton-on-Fosse east of but excluding the Fosse Way, the part of the Parish of Tredington lying south of the Darlingscote Road (included) and also east of the Fosse Way (excluded).
Shipston Primary will admit children who live out of the catchment area providing there is space.
Prospective parents are encouraged to make an appointment with the Executive Headteacher to view the school during the working day. This can happen at any time of the year.
The planned admission number (PAN) for each year is 60.
Children with a statement of special educational needs that names the school must be admitted. This may reduce the number of places available to applicants.
APPLICATIONS - STARTING SCHOOL
Children will normally be admitted at the beginning of the academic year in which they attain five years of age, which can be in advance of statutory school age. Parents have a right to defer entry. They must apply for the place in the school at the normal time and any place offered can only be reserved until later in the same academic year or until the child attains statutory school age (the term following the fifth birthday). Parents should discuss the implications of deferred entry with the Executive Headteacher.
The timetable and closing dates are published on Warwickshire Local Authority’s website
Applications made later than the closing dates will be dealt with after those received on time. Parents will be asked to provide independent confirmation of the home address.
Late applications will be considered only after the applications received by the closing dates.
APPLYING FOR A PLACE AT SECONDARY SCHOOL OR GRAMMAR SCHOOL
Parents and carers who want to enter their child to sit the 11+ entrance tests for Warwickshire grammar schools should submit applications using the Local Authority's on-line application facility.
