Pupils will be placed on the Waiting List in strict order according to the over-subscription criteria on the Admissions Policy. If a place becomes available at the school, places will be allocated according to this criteria. The Waiting List will be held from the allocation of places date, until December in the year of admission. Parent(s) must contact the school and request that their child’s name is placed on the Waiting List. This can be done by telephone (01604 761469) or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.(This email address is being protected from spambots.

Notes

Where there are more applications in any one category, applications will be prioritised on the distance from the child’s home to the main entrance of the school. Distances will be determined by the Local Authority, measured on a straight line basis, using a geographical information system.

Parish Boundaries

For Parish Boundaries, please visit the internet site www.achurchnearyou.com, put in your postcode, click on where you live and the name of your parish will be shown. A map showing the parish of St Columba’s Collingtree is enclosed and is also available at the school.

Residency Definition

The child’s place of residence is the address of the parent or legal guardian with whom the child spends the majority of time during the school week. (Parent(s)/legal guardians may be asked to produce evidence of residency/home address at any time during the admissions process). Please note that some addresses in Collingtree Park fall outside the parish boundary marked on the map. The exact location of the residence should be checked with the school.

Definition of siblings

The definition of a brother or sister (sometimes referred to as a sibling);
– a brother or sister sharing the same parents
– a half brother or half sister where 2 children share one common parent
– a step-brother or step sister, where two children are related by a parent’s marriage/partnership
– adopted children

A brother or sister must be living at the same address when the application is made.

Definition of Worshipping Member

The term “worshipping member” is defined as follows: At least one of the parents or guardians of the child is regarded by the priest/minister/worship leader as part of the worshipping community at the church/worship centre. This would not necessarily mean that the parent is a “Member” in the technical sense (e.g. through baptism, confirmation or electoral roll) but would imply a pattern of attendance at worship (on Sunday or at other times) that is more than “occasional” and has been sustained for more than a short, very recent period of time.

National Curriculum

Every state funded school must offer a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based and which:

  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and
  • prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

The school curriculum comprises all learning and other experiences that each school plans for its pupils.  The National Curriculum forms one part of the school curriculum. 

Maintained schools in England are legally required to follow the statutory National Curriculum which sets out in programmes of study, on the basis of key stages, subject content for those subjects that should be taught to all pupils. 

Schools are also free to include other subjects or topics of their choice in planning and designing their own programme of education.
