THE QUEEN’S CHURCH OF ENGLAND PRIMARY SCHOOL
We extend a warm welcome to The Queen’s Church of England Primary School. We are a Church of England voluntary aided primary school offering education to children from four to eleven years. We welcome applications from all members of the community and we ask all to respect the Christian Ethos of our school and its importance within our community.
If you are considering The Queen’s Church of England School for your child, you are warmly invited to make an appointment to visit once your child has reached three years of age.
Every year we admit thirty children to each of our two reception classes, sixty in total. If we are oversubscribed we will allocate places using our admissions criteria which are available to view in our Admissions Policy. We encourage you to read both our Admissions Policy [attached below] and Richmond’s Guide, “Admission to Richmond’s Primary Schools” , which is updated and published each August, the year prior to your child's entry to reception. Please note that children applying who have older siblings at Queen’s still need to apply for a reception place in the usual way. Should you have any queries we are very happy to provide advice and guidance about admissions. Please call the school and ask to speak to Michelle Jones, PA to the Head Teacher, on 020 8940 3580. We publish details of how places have been allocated and you can see that below.
How to apply to The Queen’s School:
Parents must complete the Local Authority’s Common Application Form (CAF) and return the form to the Authority by the official closing date (see the latest Richmond Guide); naming Queen’s as one of the preferences on the CAF. Parents wishing to apply for a place under the church criteria 4 or 5, as listed in our Admissions Policy, must also complete the Queen’s School Clergy Form [attached below] and return it to Queen’s School by the same closing date.
Waiting List and Appeals:
Following an application, if we are unable to offer a place for your child, their name will be placed on a waiting list operated by the school in accordance with the oversubscription criteria. The waiting list remains open until the end of the summer term. Parents who wish their child to remain on the waiting list beyond the end of the summer term must notify the Local Authority in writing.
You have the legal right of appeal against a decision not to offer your child a place at Queen’s. You are entitled to appeal for a place even though your child may have received an offer of a place at another school. Parents wishing to appeal should obtain an appeal form from the school. The form should be sent to the Clerk to the Appeal panel, c/o The Queen’s Church of England Primary School. Appeal Applications must be received by the school within 20 school days, starting from the National Offer Day. More information on appeal rules can be found in the latest Richmond Guide and in our Admissions Policy.
Places occasionally become available further up the school, and parents of older children are welcome to enquire and visit.
