Dear Parent/Carer

This booklet has been produced by Warrington Borough Council as a guide to school admissions
in the borough. It sets out the arrangements for the transfer of children to primary schools for the
academic year beginning in September 2016 and gives details of how places are allocated.

The law gives parents/carers the right to express a preference for which school you wish your child
to attend. It is very important that you understand that this is not the same as being able to choose
a school. Admission to your school of first preference depends on meeting the criteria that are
explained in this booklet and availability of places at that school. The booklet tells you about the
schools in Warrington, how to apply for a place and what to do if we cannot meet the preferences
that you express.

Please take the time to read the booklet carefully before completing your application,
even if you have already decided which schools you prefer.

Each school produces a prospectus which contains a great deal of information about that school.
It is also useful to visit the schools which interest you before completing the application form.
Our schools welcome visits from prospective parents/carers; please telephone the school for a
convenient appointment. If you have any queries about individual schools, do not hesitate to
contact the Headteacher concerned.

Finally, please make sure that you submit your application before the deadline date,
15 January 2016, as late applications will normally only be considered after the main
allocation of places is finished. If you do not submit your form on or before this date, it
will reduce our ability to meet the preference for schools that you express.

Yours sincerely

Steve Reddy
Executive Director,
Families and Wellbeing Directorate

Information about schools


Admission Arrangements 2016/17

The admission authorities must have admission arrangements that clearly set out how children will
be admitted to their school, including the criteria that will be applied if there are more applications
received for the school than there are places available (Oversubscription criteria).

Admission arrangements must be determined annually by 15 April, even if they have not changed
from the previous years and a consultation has not been required. The arrangements detailed in
this book were determined on 15 April 2015. A copy of the arrangements is available to download
from our website: www.warrington.gov.uk/admissions

Types of primary schools in Warrington

There are two types of primary school in Warrington. The names stand for the different roles which
the local authority (LA) and school governors have in running the school. These are:

Community schools
The local authority (LA) is the admission authority for all community schools and deals with the
allocation of places using the published admission criteria. The names, address, contact details,
published admission number and how places were allocated for September 2015 can be seen on
pages 17-35.

Faith schools
The governing body is the admission authority for the school and each school has their own
admissions criteria. The LA administrates the allocation of places on behalf of the governing body.
The names, addresses contact details, published admission number and how places were
allocated for September 2015 can be seen on pages 36-72

Details about Warrington primary schools

Junior Schools
There are two junior schools in Warrington. Both are community schools and have an associated
infant school as listed below.

Broomfields Junior School associated infant school The Cobbs Infant and Nursery School
Thelwall Junior School associated infant school Thelwall Infant School

Transfer from infant to junior school is automatic and no application needs to be made.

Location map
A map on pages 46-47 of this booklet shows where all primary schools in Warrington are located.

Breakfast and after school clubs


A list of breakfast and after school provisions within Warrington is available from the Families
Information Service on 01925 443131.

Obtaining more information about individual schools

Visit the schools


It is a good idea to visit a number of schools in your area before deciding which one you
would prefer your child to attend. Some schools have specific open days and others will
arrange individual appointments.

School prospectus
The Governors of each school publish a prospectus each year that provides information
about their school. The prospectus is available from the school.

Ofsted inspection reports


Summaries of inspections carried out by Inspectors on behalf of the Office for Standards in
Education (Ofsted) are available in schools. Headteachers will provide information on the
action plans which address issues raised in Ofsted reports. If you have access to the internet,
Ofsted reports can be viewed on www.ofsted.gov.uk.

School performance tables


Copies of the published primary school achievement and attainment tables for Warrington
primary schools may be inspected in local libraries or are obtainable from the Department
for Education by telephoning 0800 242322. If you have access to the internet, achievement
and attainment tables can be viewed on www.dfe.gov.uk/performancetables

Apply online until 15 January 2016 at www.warrington.gov.uk/admissions

Applying for first admission to


reception for September 2016
Admission age
Legally your child reaches compulsory school age at the beginning of the term following his/her
fifth birthday. However, in Warrington it is current council policy to provide education from the
beginning of the school year in which your child is 5 years old. This means that a school place will
be available in autumn 2016 for every child who was born on or between 1 September 2011 and
31 August 2012.

If your child is presently attending a nursery class please note you do not have an automatic
right to transfer to the primary school to which this class is attached. You will need to state your
preference for a primary school like all other parent/carers.

Deferred entry
If you prefer to defer your childs entry to a school until he or she is of compulsory school age this
will be possible provided that the place is taken up within the same academic year. Parents can
request that the date their child is admitted to school is deferred until later in that academic year
or until the term in which the child reaches compulsory school age. Parents can request that their
child takes up the place part-time until the child reaches compulsory school age.

The first few weeks of term


To help children adjust to school, schools may phase their intake over the first weeks of term with
reception children attending on a part-time basis. Arrangements are determined at school level,
but part time attendance will not last longer than the first four weeks of term.

Applying for schools outside Warrington


If you live in Warrington and wish to apply for schools in another local authority, you must do so on
the Warrington application form. If you name a school outside Warrington you should obtain the
information booklet from the relevant authority (contact details for neighbouring authorities are on
page 81) to find out about a particular school you are interested in.

Applications from parents who live outside Warrington


If you reside in another local authority and wish to apply for a Warrington school, then you should
read your home authority information booklet and complete their application form. (see page 81
for contact details on neighbouring authorities). Under no circumstances should you complete
more than one application form.

Children with special educational needs


If your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan/Statement of special educational needs you
should indicate this on your application form. Your application will then be forwarded to Warrington
Borough Councils Inclusion Team to be processed.

NB: Parents of children currently undergoing assessment for special needs should still follow the
procedures outlined in this booklet and complete a preference form for their child. Any allocation
of a place will be in consultation with the Transforming Learning Division once the statutory
assessment is completed.

Co-ordination of admissions
There are regulations which require all local authorities to co-ordinate admissions within their areas
through close working with Faith schools and with neighbouring local authorities in accordance
with a published scheme.

Under co-ordinated admission arrangements, applications must be made to a parents/carers


home local authority (the authority to which they pay their council tax). Warrington local
authority will notify all parents/carers living within the borough of Warrington of the place allocated
to their child, even if the place offered is at a school within another local authority. These
arrangements are to ensure that every parent/carer living in a local authority receives an offer of
one (and only one) school place on the same day.

Where the place allocated is at a Faith school, the governing body (as the admission authority) will
make the allocation decision but the local authority will send out the letter on behalf of the
governing body.

The scheme for co-ordinated admissions is available on request to the admissions team or can be
viewed on the councils website: http://www.warrington.gov.uk/home/children_and_young_people/
schools/admissions_for_schools/ (Determined primary admission arrangements 2016/17).

Oversubscription criteria
Sometimes there are not enough places at a school to satisfy every parent/carer who wants to
send a child there. This is what is meant when a school is oversubscribed. This is why we ask you
to name more than one school in the order you prefer on the application form.

Oversubscription criteria are used to prioritise applications for places where the number of
applications for a school is greater than the number of places available.

Supplementary information
This applies to applications for faith schools only

If a faith school is oversubscribed it may require supplementary information to that which is


provided on the local authority application form.

If parents wish to put a faith school down as any of their preferences they should also contact the
school to request a supplementary form which when completed and returned will give the school
the relevant information to help them decide the correct oversubscription criterion your child falls
under.

Definition of childs address


For allocation purposes the home address is defined as the address where the child normally
lives, not a childminders or grandparents address. Where a child lives with parents with shared
responsibility the address given on the form should be the address of the parent who is in receipt
of the child benefit and/or child tax credit. Proof may be required.

Change of circumstances/change of address


If you change address, you must inform us in writing. Documentary proof must be provided in the
form of a copy of the exchange of contracts or if it is a rented property, the tenancy agreement,
(for a minimum period of 6 months).

GUARANTEE A RECEPTION PLACE AT PRIMARY SCHOOL
Apply online until 15 January 2016 at www.warrington.gov.uk/admissions

You should be aware that where a place is allocated at a school on the basis of your address, or
having a sibling connection, and then you change address, or the older sibling leaves the school,
this may result in the allocated place being withdrawn.

Address changes with supporting documentary proof can only be accepted up until Friday 1 April
2016. Any changes of address provided after this date will be dealt with after the allocation date,
(15 April 2016).

Due to problems encountered in previous years it may be necessary for the admissions team to
carry out further checks to confirm that addresses given are genuine, and so in certain cases you
may be asked to produce additional documentary evidence of your childs address.

IMPORTANT NOTE
IF, ON YOUR APPLICATION, YOU HAVE INDICATED A CHANGE OF
ADDRESS AND/OR DATE OF PROPOSED MOVE, IT REMAINS THE
PARENTS/CARERS RESPONSIBILITY TO INFORM THE ADMISSIONS
TEAM AND PROVIDE DOCUMENTARY PROOF ONCE THE CHANGE OF
ADDRESS HAS TAKEN PLACE.

Siblings
For the definition of a sibling please refer to the oversubscription criteria on pages 17 - 72.

Twins, triplets, etc


In respect of applications for twins, triplets etc the local authority will apply the oversubscription
criteria in the normal way but will oversubscribe a school if a family would otherwise be split. Twins
and children from multiple births may exceptionally be offered a place/places when one of the
siblings is offered the last place at the school.

Factual/false information
It is assumed that you will always give us correct factual information. You should be advised
that giving false information in respect of an application for admission may result in any offer of a
school place being withdrawn.

Late Applications
All applications received after the closing date of 15 January 2016 may be dealt with after those
which were received on time. You should be aware that a late application could reduce your
chance of gaining a place at your preferred school. In some cases when an application is
submitted after the closing date but before the allocation date it may be considered alongside
those applications which were received on time where there is, in the view of the admissions
authority, an acceptable reason for the late submission of the form.

Expressing and ranking your


preferences
Order of preferences
From September 2008 following a change in the law, The Education and Inspections Act 2006 and
the School Admissions Code, required all admission authorities to operate an equal preference
system for dealing with applications to school.

Under the equal preference system the three preferences you name on the preference
form will be treated equally. The preference order will only be used if your child fulfils the
admission criteria for more than one of the schools you have listed on your preference
form. If this is the case your child will be allocated a place at the school you placed as
the highest preference, for which your child qualifies for a place. It is therefore important
for you to name the schools you prefer in order of preference.
The number of preferences for a particular school can vary from year to year and over a period of
years. We have shown on the list of Warrington schools which ones were oversubscribed for the
previous school year and details of how many places were offered in each oversubscription criterion.
If we are not able to offer you a place at the school of your first preference, your second and third
preferences will be considered alongside first preference applications for those schools. It is
therefore very important that you take the opportunity to name three schools on the preference form.

Second and third preferences


If you do not name a second or third school, it does not mean you have more chance of getting a
place at the school you have put first.
Please do not name a school more than once. This does not improve your chances of getting a
place there. It means that if you do not obtain a place at the school, the admissions team does
not know which other schools are of interest to you. You may lose priority for another school where
you might otherwise have gained a place.

When preferences cannot be met


If we are not able to offer your child a place at any of your preferred schools, your child will be
offered a place at the nearest school to the home address which has a place available. When this
school is a Faith school any offer of a place would be made in agreement with, and on behalf of,
the governing body, as admission authority for the school.

Changes to preferences
You can make changes to your application form up until the 15 January 2016. All you need to do
is go back to the online application form, (you will need your username and password), make your
changes AND THEN YOU MUST RE-SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION. IF YOU DO NOT
RE-SUBMIT, YOUR APPLICATION FORM WILL NOT BE REGISTERED.
After the closing date, the on-line facility will be unavailable. Any change of preference will only be
accepted after 15 January 2016 if there is, in the opinion of the admissions authority, a genuine
reason for doing so, for example if you have moved address*. Once places have been allocated
(after 15 April 2016), you may then request a change of school but it may be difficult to meet your
revised preference. All requests for a change of preference must be made in writing.
* Please remember that address changes with supporting documentary proof will only be
accepted up until Friday 1 April 2016. Any later changes of address will be dealt with
after the allocation date of 15 April 2016.

Waiting lists and appeals


Waiting lists for school places
Waiting lists for oversubscribed schools will be maintained for the transfer age group until the end
of the Autumn Term (December 2016). This is because vacancies sometimes arise after the initial
allocation of places has been made.

Where parents are refused one of their preferences, their childs name will be automatically added
to the waiting list for that school. If vacancies arise they will be offered to children on the waiting
list.

How the waiting list is prioritised


Waiting lists are held strictly in oversubscription criteria order. If you change address during the
time the waiting list is held, documentary proof of the address change will be required. The order
of the waiting list can change as applicants leave or join the list, or as the circumstance of the
applicant change e.g. change of address, sibling joining or leaving the preferred school.

Appeals procedure
If your child is refused a place at any school for which you have expressed a preference, you have
the right to appeal against this decision. This applies whether the school is community or faith.

The letter telling you that a place cannot be offered to your child will include details of how to
appeal if you wish to do so. The letter will also tell you the time limit within which you can appeal
where appropriate. A letter acknowledging receipt of your appeal paperwork will be sent to you.

Before deciding whether to appeal, you will probably want to think about the published policy
for admitting pupils appropriate to the school, your reasons for wanting your child to attend the
school, your childs view of what school he/she should attend and how strong a case you have.
You may also want to visit the school where you have been offered a place.

Appeals are passed to the clerk to the appeals panel who then provides further advice for
appellants on the procedures followed.

If your appeal is successful there will be no assistance with transport unless you qualify under the
local authorities transport policy.

If your appeal is declined you are not able to appeal again for the same school for the same
academic year unless there has been a material change of circumstances (e.g. change of
residence) or the circumstances of the school have changed.

NB: For pupils who have a statement of special educational needs any appeal with regard
to the school named in the statement would be to the special educational needs and
disability tribunal rather than the independent appeals panel.

Appealing against admission decisions for Key Stage One (Infant) children
The Schools Standards and Framework Act 1998 require that from September 2001 no five, six or
seven year old in an infant class at a maintained school will be in a class of more than 30 pupils.
If your preference for a primary school is refused because the class has reached its statutory limit,
you will have the right of appeal but this category of appeal can only be upheld if an Appeal Panel
is satisfied:

(a) that the decision was not one which a reasonable admission authority would make in the
circumstances of the case; or
(b) that the child would have been offered a place if the admission arrangements had been
properly implemented.

More detailed information about this will be provided if it is not possible for your first preference of
school to be met.

Community primary schools


The following pages detail the community primary schools within the borough of Warrington.
A brief description of the admission criteria is included with the information provided.

None of the criteria guarantee placement


Oversubscription criteria are used to establish an order of priority for allocating places when the
number of applications for places exceeds the number of places available.

Children who have a statement of special educational needs will be admitted to the school named
in the statement over and above the oversubscription criteria.

Oversubscription criteria for 2016/17 (full policy can be viewed on our website)

1. Children in care and children formerly in care.*

2. Siblings (pupils with elder brothers or sisters already attending the preferred school and
expected to continue at the school in the following school year. This includes full, half or step
brothers and sisters and foster brothers and sisters who are living at the same address as part
of the same family unit)

3. Pupils for whom advice from a medical practitioner or psychologist has been provided by the
parents/carers at the time of application in support of admission to a particular school, which,
in the councils view, justifies admission to the preferred school. The council, if it is considered
appropriate, will seek the views of the school medical officer or educational psychologist in the
event of parents requesting admission on medical or psychological grounds.

4. Pupils living nearest to the school measured as a direct distance from the childs permanent
place of residence to the school measured using a geographical Information address point
system based on the local land and property gazetteer. This measures straight line (direct)
distances in miles from the address point of the permanent place of residence to the address
point of the school.

NB Where a school reaches its published admission number from pupils within one of the
categories listed above, those pupils to be admitted from within that category will be those
whose permanent places of residence are closest to the school as defined in
oversubscription criterion four.

For the purpose of dealing with applications for admission on the grounds of a sibling
being in attendance, separate infant and junior schools will be regarded as a single unit

* Children in Care and children formerly in Care is defined as looked after children and previously
looked after children who have ceased to be in Care because they have been adopted or
be came subject to a residence order or special guardianship order.

Tie Breaker
A tie breaker must be applied to decide which applicant will be offered the last place at a school
when two or more applicants cannot otherwise be separated.

In the event of the distances (in miles) being the same for two or more applicants and the last
place to be allocated would be to one of these applicants, the measurements would be taken
again in kilometres and the place will be offered to the applicant living nearest to the school in
kilometres.

In the event that the distances measured in kilometres are the same, a random allocation will be
applied.

description of each schools admission criteria is included in the information provided for each
school.

Please note: the tables on the following pages refer to places allocated using the
admissions policy 2015/16

You need to be aware that when applying for a place for your child in a reception class at a Faith
primary school you must:

supplied to you with the application form for admission.

All references to children in care, children in public care include children formerly in care. Children
formerly in care is defined as children who have ceased to be in care because they have been
adopted or became subject to a residence order or special guardianship order.

Important points to remember when applying for a place in a Faith primary school:
1. The governing body of the school is the admissions authority for the school not the local
authority. The governing body allocates places at the school.
2. Religious education, collective worship and the whole ethos of the school are based on the
teaching of the Church of England and the Catholic Church.
3. Members of the church and the diocese have contributed to the building of the school and
continue to pay towards its upkeep.
4. Applicants are sometimes required to supply supporting letters from members of the clergy.
Please refer to the schools full admission policy for their requirements.
5. In accordance with the requirements of the DfE regulations on co-ordinated admissions Faith
schools follow the same timetable for receipt of applications as the one used by the local
authority and detailed on page 4 of this booklet.
6. Arrangements for admission to Faith schools are reviewed annually in line with statutory
requirements.
7. Parents who are refused places at a Faith school have a statutory right of appeal to an
independent appeals panel. Appeals must be made in writing and addressed to the admissions
team. However under the Schools Standards and Framework Act 1998 the powers of these
Appeals Panels are curtailed in line with the infant class size legislation. Please see page 78 of
this booklet for information on appeals.
8. All children who are refused a place will automatically be placed on the waiting list.
9. Further information concerning ecclesiastical (church) parish areas and boundaries and other
factors affecting admissions to Faith schools should be obtained from the school.
10. Requests for further information or arrangements to visit the school should be made with the
headteacher.

Transfer between primary schools


In Year admissions
In year admission applications are those requesting transfer from one school to another outside of
the normal admissions round, for example when a family moves house part way through a school
year.

Generally a child will be admitted to another school if there is a place available in the required year
group, with the exception of those children whose circumstances meet the requirements of the Fair
Access Protocol. Further information on the Fair Access Protocol can be found on page 76.

If your request for an in year transfer is not because of a change of address or relocation from
overseas, you are strongly advised to think carefully before you transfer your child to another
school since this causes an unnecessary break in your childs education. Problems that your child
may be experiencing may not go away simply as a result of a change of school. If you are worried
about your childs progress at school you are advised first of all to discuss matters with the
headteacher. Whenever possible, it is better for transfers to take place at the beginning of a term.

To Apply
Application forms and further information on the in year transfer process are available on our
website www.warrington.gov.uk\admissions or by contacting the Admissions Team on
01925 446226.

Exceptional circumstances
If you have just relocated to Warrington or relocated within Warrington and are refused all of your
preferred schools, the authority has a statutory duty to ensure that an alternative school is offered
to your child which is within a reasonable distance from your home address. Where the school is
a Faith school or Academy, any offer will be made in agreement with and on behalf of the schools
admission authority.

If there are no places available within a reasonable distance from your home address, the authority
must decide which school is the appropriate school to offer based on the circumstances of both
the applicant and the school.

The local authority will consult the Headteacher at the school to decide whether or not, on balance,
the prejudice caused to the child by not admitting them to a particular school outweighs the
prejudice caused to the school by admitting the child. The authority would make every effort to
share such requests between schools which are local to the applicants address, when it is
reasonable to do so.

NB: Proof of a change of residence will be required in the form of a copy of an exchange of
contracts or if moving to a rented property a tenancy agreement of a minimum period of 6 months.

Where all the above statements do not apply, you will be offered the right of appeal.

Taking up an offered place

Where a place is offered at a school as an in-year admission (i.e. not first admission to either pri-
mary or secondary school) the parent would be expected to admit the child to the school within
6 school weeks of the offer of a place. This applies where:

an available place has been offered, or

a place has been offered at an oversubscribed school under the test for exceptional
circumstances

a place has been offered as a result of a decision of the Independent Appeals Panel.

Appeals procedure

If your child is refused a place at any school for which you have expressed a preference, you have
the right to appeal against this decision. This applies whether the school is community or faith.

The letter telling you that a place cannot be offered to your child will include details of how to
appeal if you wish to do so. The letter will also tell you the time limit within which you can appeal
where appropriate. A letter acknowledging receipt of your appeal paperwork will be sent to you.

Before deciding whether to appeal, you will probably want to think about the published policy
for admitting pupils appropriate to the school, your reasons for wanting your child to attend the
school, your childs view of what school he/she should attend and how strong a case you have.
You may also want to visit the school where you have been offered a place.

Appeals are passed to the clerk to the appeals panel who then provides further advice for
appellants on the procedures followed.

If your appeal is successful there will be no assistance with transport unless you qualify under the
local authorities transport policy.

If your appeal is declined you are not able to appeal again for the same school for the same
academic year unless there has been a material change of circumstances (e.g. change of
residence) or the circumstances of the school have changed.

NB: For pupils who have a statement of special educational needs any appeal with
regard to the school named in the statement would be to the special educational needs
and disability tribunal rather than the independent appeals panel.

Appealing against admission decisions for Key Stage One (Infant) children

The Schools Standards and Framework Act 1998 require that from September 2001 no five, six or
seven year old in an infant class at a maintained school will be in a class of more than 30 pupils.
If your preference for a primary school is refused because the class has reached its statutory limit,
you will have the right of appeal but this category of appeal can only be upheld if an Appeal Panel
is satisfied:

(a) that the decision was not one which a reasonable admission authority would make in the
circumstances of the case; or

(b) that the child would have been offered a place if the admission arrangements had been
properly implemented.

More detailed information about this will be provided if it is not possible for your first preference of
school to be met.

General information
Early Years Education
The Childcare Act 2006 places a duty on local authorities to secure sufficient high quality early
years education and childcare in all local communities. Warringtons childcare strategy seeks to
establish the provision of sufficient early years education for all three and four year olds across a
range of providers in the private, voluntary, maintained and childminder network sectors.

All 3 and 4 year olds are entitled to up to 15 hours free early years education for 38 weeks of the
year. This can be taken flexibly over a minimum of 2 days and no more than 10 hours per day.

All Warrington resident children are eligible to receive a free nursery education place from the term
following their third birthday. To access your free place you can:
Take up a free place in a nursery school/class OR
Take up your free place from a private day nursery or pre-school OR
Take up your free place from registered childminders who have attained good or above Ofsted
outcomes and a Level 3 qualification.
The local authority funds all schools and private and voluntary settings registered by Ofsted to
deliver early years education. This funding ensures that the 15 hours are free at the point of
delivery to all parents/carers.
Parents/carers can use the free 15 hours early education place with no more than two providers.
Further information relating to places in maintained nursery schools, classes, pre-schools and
private day nurseries in the borough can be obtained from the Families Information Service on
01925 443131. A booklet is published on nursery education. You may obtain a copy from the

means for pupils who have to travel more than a certain distance to their nearest suitable school.

walking route.
If you state a preference for a school which is not the nearest appropriate school at which a place

Where preferences are based on a parents religion or belief the transport policy outlined above is
applied to the church schools where areas generally coincide with ecclesiastical parishes.

Assistance may take the form of:


Travel pass for use on public transport
Travel pass for use on private contract services
Cash grant
Mileage allowance payable to parents

Sustainable school travel


As part of the initiative to make access to education sites easier and to reduce traffic and
parking congestion around schools, the council is working with schools on the school travel plan
programme. All schools are required to have effective travel plans in place to ensure that students
wishing to walk or cycle are able to do so safely. If your chosen school is implementing its plan
it will be supporting walking and cycling to school by promoting it as a healthy option and
highlighting safer routes to the school. The councils school travel adviser can help plan routes
and give advice on road awareness and safety as well as park & stride schemes and walking
buses. Details are available through the school or by contacting the transport planning team on
01925 443414 .

The school curriculum


All primary schools maintained by the authority must offer a curriculum which covers the
Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. They must also
provide the associated Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 and 2 assessment arrangements for
pupils.

The curriculum includes at Foundation Stage six areas of learning and at Key Stage 1 and 2 the
core and foundation subjects and religious education. If you need detailed information about the
curriculum please ask your childs school.

Governing bodies of primary schools must consider whether sex education should form part of
their schools curriculum beyond what is already contained in the science curriculum. Teachers are
aware of the need to treat sex education sensitively and in appropriate groupings of pupils. The
school should keep a written record of their decision and consult parents about their sex education
programme.

Parents have the right to withdraw their children from all or any part of sex education except where
this is provided as part of the National Curriculum.

All primary schools must provide RE and collective worship but parents do have the right to
withdraw their children from RE and/or collective worship if they wish. In aided schools religious
education is given in accordance with the schools trust deed.

There is a procedure for considering complaints about the curriculum, religious education,
collective worship and related matters. Please refer, in the first instance, any complaint to the
school and then its governing body in line with the schools complaints policy.

Children with special educational needs


Most children with special educational needs will attend an appropriate mainstream school where
the governing body will be responsible for ensuring their needs are met. A small number of
children who have special educational needs which cannot be met from within the resources
normally available to children of a similar age will be assessed by the authority in accordance with
the procedure laid down in the Children and Families Act 2014 and in accordance with the Code
of Practice 2014. Assessments are carried out after consultation with parents or guardians who are
given full details of the results of assessments.

For children where an Education Health and Care needs assessment has been carried out and an
Education Health and Care Plan is issued, dependent on the outcome of the assessment, these
children can have their needs provided for in either mainstream schools, designated provisions
attached to mainstream schools, or special schools. Any appeal with regard to the school named
in the statement would be to the special educational needs and disability tribunal (SEND).

A leaflet entitled Special Needs Provision in Warrington is available from the SENDIAS (Special
Educational Needs, Disability Information Advisory Service) on 01925 442978.

Discipline and exclusions


Schools are aware that they share responsibility for the behaviour of children in their care. All
school governing bodies maintain a written statement of general principles for their schools
behaviour and discipline policy. Details are available from each school.

Parents requiring further information should seek advice from their childs school, the inclusion
services team, Tel no 01925 442915, or the SENDIAS (Special Educational Needs, Disability
Information Advisory Service) on 01925 442978.

Charges for school activities and remission of charges


The law prohibits charges for most activities that take place in school time. Local authorities and
school governing bodies wishing to charge for any activities where this is permitted must have a
policy on charging and on remission, and must draw up and maintain a written statement of policy
which must be available to parents on request.

Parental access to pupils records


Parents may inspect all parts of their childs school record. If you wish to look at your childs
record you should apply direct to the school.

Parent governors
All school governing bodies include parent governors who are normally elected by parents of
registered pupils at the school. Further information can be obtained from the school.

Personal property
The authority does not accept responsibility for loss or damage to personal property whilst on or
left on the school premises.
