School Admission Policy
Our school complies with the admission policy of Walsall Council. Please click the link to read this policy.
We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of our pupils. We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed. In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged. We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged. Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at any one time.
All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received and how this is being used. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils
Free School Meals
All Infant school children in Reception and Key Stage One are able to benefit from Universal Infant Free School Meals, however for those parents in receipt of certain benefits the school, may be entitled to additional funding titled Pupil Premium. Please refer to our Pupil Premium application forms in our policies section of the website or collect a form from the school office to apply.
