*ADMISSION CRITERIA *
Where there are more applicants than places, Governors of the school will allocate places in accordance with the following order of priority:
1. Looked-after children and children who were previously looked after, but ceased to be so because, immediately after being looked after, they became subject to an adoption, child arrangements or special guardianship order.
*2. Baptised children of Church of England families who attend the Parish Church of The Annunciation. *
3. Baptised children of Church of England families who attend another Church of England Church.
4. Baptised children of other Christian communions. These Christian communions are members of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland. (Churches Together in Britain and Ireland is the successor body to the British Council of Churches, and co-ordinates the work of the four nations.)
5. Baptised children of Church of England families who cannot show evidence of 2 years’ attendance, 26 times per year.
6. All other children.
In the event of over-subscription in any of the above criteria, priority will be given to:
FIRST TIE BREAKER: Children with siblings already on the roll of the school who will still be in the school at the time the applicant is admitted.
SECOND TIE BREAKER: Children living closest to the school.

Hampden Gurney is a very popular primary school. We are heavily over-subscribed and currently have waiting lists in every year group.
Places are not awarded based on the length of time a child has been on the waiting list. For instance, if a family moves into the area and fulfils a criterion higher on our Admission Policy, then this takes precedent.
We hold one Open Morning each year during the Autumn term, where prospective parents and their children can come and visit our school. It is usually held in October or early November.
As a State V.A. school, admissions to classes are based on a child’s date of birth, and runs from the 1st September to 31st August. The school year always starts in September and runs through to the end of July.
