Admissions Arrangements 2020/21
St John’s Walworth Church of England School has a distinctive Christian ethos which is at the heart of this School. There is an atmosphere of trust and happiness where children feel well cared for and secure in line with the teachings of the Christian church shaped by Christian values. This is done by educating the whole child – spiritually, physically, and intellectually; developing cultural and personal identities; providing high quality education; developing attitudes and behaviours in the children which create a caring environment where all can develop so that they can fully participate in society following the example given to us by God through the teachings of Christ. We welcome applications from all members of the community and we ask parents to respect the Christian ethos of our school and its importance to our community.
The Governing Body is responsible for the admission of pupils to the School and admits 30 pupils to the reception class each September. The Governing Body is required to abide by the maximum limits for infant classes (5, 6 and 7 year olds), i.e. 30 pupils per class. .
The school’s supplementary form has a space for a reference from the priest/pastor/etc. from the church where the applicant worships, if applicable. These references are used to determine the rankings of applicants for criteria 2, 3, 4.
