Admissions & Transfer

Liaison with other schools

 

Shackleton liaises actively with Cherry Trees Nursery School and other pre school providers and with Bedford Academy and other secondary schools. This aids the continuity of learning for the children. Our children will be visiting Bedford Academy regularly prior to transfer and staff from the Academy will be joining us in different activities to get to know the children. Staff discuss the children’s needs with both Cherry Trees Nursery School and Bedford Academy as well as any other schools our children transfer to or from.  We are constantly seeking to improve our liaison procedures to ensure a smooth transition for our children (and parents!). The cluster primary schools use the same tests for transfer purposes.

 

Liaison within the school

 

Children’s progress through the school from year to year is very carefully organised to ensure that there is continuity of the learning process.  At the end of each school year the children visit their new classroom and spend time with their new teacher.

The standard admission number for Shackleton Primary School is 90 from September 2016 for Reception Classes.

 

The Local Authority will apply the following criteria (in the rank order shown) to decide the order in which places will be allocated when there are more requests from parents/carers than the number of places available:

 

1.  All ‘looked after’ children or children who were previously 'looked after'

 

2.  Pupils living in the catchment area with siblings at the school

 

3.  Other pupils living in the catchment area;

 

4.  Other siblings

 

5.  Any other children
