How to Apply for a place at Maids Moreton C.E. School
Maids Moreton is a Church of England Voluntary Aided Infant School for children of 4 to 7 years of age. Our school's current published admission number for each year group is 30. However, in September 2019, we applied through the Local Authority to the Schools' Adjudicator, to reduce our admission number to 15 from September 2020 with a view to becoming a full primary school for children aged 4-11 years. In December 2019 we received approval from the Office of the Schools Adjudicator and a such, our published admission number from September 2020, will be 15. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/maids-moreton-church-of-england-school.

Where there is oversubscription, the school’s admissions policy is applied, and applicants are placed on the waiting list held by County. In the event of an unsuccessful application, parents may choose to appeal through the Bucks County Council Appeals Procedure.
Dates for Admission
Children are admitted to the school in September at the start of the academic year in which they celebrate their 5th birthday. Children must attend full time in the term after which they become 5. The school operates a very flexible policy and will decide whether full time or part time is most appropriate for younger pupils.
Prior to admission the children are invited to two “taster” sessions to become familiar with the teachers and other children who will be starting school at the same time. Parents will be invited to an “information gathering evening”. These events are intended to make the transfer from home to school as smooth and comfortable as possible. The school has very close links with the local on-site pre-school as well as a number of other local providers.
Arrangements for Visits
Parents who wish to come and view the school may do so by pre-arranged appointment. Please contact Mrs Power, the school administrator/bursar.
An Open Morning also takes place in the Autumn Term when parents can meet the staff and pupils and see the school in action.
