Admissions Arrangements 2018/19

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 creating 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.

Parent View

Ofsted have launched Parent View, a new online questionnaire that will allow parents and carers to give their views on their child’s school at any time of the year. Covering over 22,000 schools across England, the 12-question survey will help other parents as they make important choices about their child’s education and provide Ofsted with information about schools that will help inform priorities for inspection.

Parents will be asked to give their view on the following 12 questions, from strongly agree through to strongly disagree:

• My child is happy at this school
• My child feels safe at this school
• My child makes good progress at this school
• My child is well looked after at this school
• My child is taught well at this school
• My child receives appropriate homework for their age
• This school ensures the pupils are well behaved
• This school deals effectively with bullying
• This school is well led and managed
• This school responds well to any concern I raise
• I receive valuable information from the school about my child’s progress
• I would recommend this school to another parent

The questionnaire is accessible at www.parentview.ofsted.gov.uk
