The school's admission policy is also held centrally and can be found in our policies section.
The school aims to provide a place for all children whose address is within the designated area, defined as being the area within the ecclesiastical boundaries of the parish of Okeford Fitzpaine. Designated area means the area of benefit as defined in the school's Trust Deed.
The address is the place where the child is permanently resident with his or her parent or parents or legal guardians. Evidence may be requested to show the address, for example: to which any Child Benefit is paid or at which the child is registered with a medical GP together with recent utilities bill, council tax bill or tenancy agreement. This evidence will be used when reaching a decision on the child’s home address for admissions purposes (including where a child lives with parents with shared responsibility for each part of the week). Parents should not assume that a place will automatically be allocated to their child.
