Admissions to All Saints Benhilton C of E Primary School

 

Visiting the school

Here at All Saints Benhilton, we are courageous advocates for a respectful, responsible and kind world. Our curriculum empowers pupils to understand and be aware of how they can learn confidently, behave appropriately and demonstrate our Christian values at all times. All pupils learn through knowledge, faith and love how to look after themselves and their ‘neighbours’. Ultimately, we aim for them to change the world by rising to the challenge of what God would wish them to do.

‘Go and do likewise’ Luke 10:37.

Prospective parents are welcome to visit the school by arrangement with the Headteacher. Guided tours of the school are offered in September and October each year and a virtual tour is available here.

Applying for a place at All Saints Benhilton

Nursery Admission

For the Nursery, parents are advised to apply as soon as their child reaches the age of two. Our application form can be accessed below or paper copies can be obtained from the school office.

From September 2023, children are admitted according to our Nursery admission policy. Any admission prior to that date will be subject to the whole school Admission policy 2021-2022 or 2022-2023, as appropriate.

There is no right of appeal against non-admittance to the Nursery. A place in the Nursery does not guarantee a place in the Main School.

Admission to Reception Year

Applications to Reception Year are handled by the London Borough of Sutton as part of their co-ordinated admissions process. Parents must apply directly to their home local authority and name All Saints Benhilton as one of their choices on their application form.

Applications will be considered in line with our Main School Admission Policy. Those who wish to apply for a Foundation place are also required to complete a Supplementary Information form (see below). Paper copies of this form are also available from the school office. The Supplementary Information form will need to be signed by your priest or minister, who should return it to the school office no later than the closing date for applications (usually 15th January).

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
