Admission to the School

The Governing Body of Chew Stoke Church School is the Admissions Authority for the school and as such is responsible for the admission of all children to the school, with the exception of Reception admissions which are dealt with by Bath & North East Somerset Council. Within the Governing Body there is an Admissions Committee made up of Governors and the Head Teacher and it is the responsibility of this committee to ensure that the school has appropriate admission arrangements in place. Each year the Published Admission Number indicating the maximum number of places available for the September intake of children is published on the school website (please see below). The Governors may review the Published Admission Number at any time. If this is altered, the change will be notified on our school website.

The School Admission Arrangements outline the process of application for children starting school in September and for admission to any year group during the year. Information on our over subscription criteria, waiting list and the appeal process can also be found in our Admission Arrangements. The Governors use Bath and North East Somerset Council Democratic Services Department for admission appeals; further information may be found here -
