Admissions Policy

Norfolk County Council has overall authority for placing children at Old Catton Church of England Junior School. They should be involved if parents wish to transfer their children to Old Catton Church of England Junior School.

In the Summer Term each year, there are induction visits for pupils who are to start in the following September. There is also an evening meeting for the parents of those children. In addition, the Head teacher will be pleased to see any parent regarding admission throughout the year.

The school capacity is currently 50 per year group, so 200 pupils.

If there are more applications for places than there are places available, we will give preference to children living nearest to the school, according to the following rules in this order of priority:

1. children with a statement of special educational needs naming that school

2. children in public care who are due to transfer

3. children who are due to transfer, living in the area served by the school who have a brother or sister attending the school at the time of their admission

4. children who are due to transfer, living in the area served by the school who have no brother or sister connection with the school

5. children who are due to transfer, living outside the area served by the school who have a brother or sister attending the school at the time of their admission

6. children who are due to transfer, living outside the area served by the school and attend a feeder school at the opening date of the admission round.

7. children who are due to transfer, living outside the area served by the school who have no brother or sister or feeder school connection with the school.
