Admissions Information

All admission requests are processed by the local authority and Pucklechurch CE VC Primary has no role in this process.  Pucklechurch CE VC Primary has a standard intake of 30 children per year group.  If you would like a school place for your child to start in our reception class then you will need to apply directly to South Gloucestershire Council.

All information regarding the admissions criteria can be found on the South Gloucestershire Admissions website or by clicking the link below:-

Applications must be returned to South Glos either in person, by post or electronically by the closing date each year which is currently 15th January 2020.

For parents/carers of children seeking to join the school in years other than reception please refer to the South Glos in-year admissions page on the same link.

The following considerations are included within the LA admissions policy but for full details please refer to the policy itself:-

  • Our intake will mainly be considered from the local geographical area.

  • We aim to provide sibling placements wherever possible.

  • Any over subscription of a year group will then automatically operate within the County guidelines (copies available from South Gloucestershire Admissions).

  • Children with special educational needs and disabilities will be welcomed as long as Governors deem that the school can provide the required level of support, in a partnership with the local authority.  A programme of support for the individual child will be agreed between the Headteacher, Special Needs Co-ordinator, Class Teacher and Parents.

Pucklechurch CE VC Primary will operate a staggered induction programme for each child as they begin formal schooling.


Every effort is made to make a place available for your child in our school.  However, schools have a limit on the number of children they can take.  This figure is set by the LA and agreed with the School Governors and Headteacher.

If a place is not available on application you have the right to put your case to an Admissions Appeal Panel. 


An independent panel will hear your case.  It has the power to override the decisions of the LA in some circumstances.

If you need further information concerning admissions please contact The Children and Young People Information Service on 01454 868008 or email
