How to Apply for a place at Maids Moreton C.E. School
Maids Moreton is a Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School for children of 4 to 11 years of age. We are a Church of England Voluntary Aided School but this does not affect our admissions policy. Families of all faiths and none are equally welcome and we have no clause with regard to practising church-goers in our admissions criteria.
Our school is currently expanding and changing status from being an infant school to a full primary. The timeline is as follows:
September 2021 - Years R to 3
September 2022 - Years R to 4
September 2023 - Years R to 5
September 2024 - Years R to 6
Our school's published admission number for each year group is 15.
Admission during the school year depends on whether there are places available. All year groups at the school have 15 places. The school has voluntary co-ordination arrangements with Bucks County Council therefore all applications for in year places must be made to Buckinghamshire Council.

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 a taster session to become familiar with the teachers, the setting and other children who will be starting school at the same time. The school has very close links with the local on-site Pre-School as well as a number of other local providers. The Reception class teachers visit each new child in their pre-school or nursery settings prior to school admission. Parents are also invited to a starting school information evening. These events are intended to make the transfer from home to school as smooth and comfortable as possible.
How to find out about our school and arrangements for visits
Parents who wish to come in and view the school in action are welcomed by pre-arranged appointment. Please contact Mrs Power, the school administrator/bursar, to arrange a visit. We have also made a presentation available for prospective parents which can be viewed by clicking on the link below. The presentation contains a wealth of information about our school.
Consultation on Admissions Policy 2023-2024
We are currently consulting on our admissions policy for 2023-2024. The reason why we are consulting at this time is because as a VA school, we are strongly advised to align our policy with the model policy of the Oxford Diocese. NB: There are no significant changes to our admissions criteria from previously. If you have any comments regarding these arrangements please email the Chair of Governors, Mr David Owen at the school office firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 3rd December 2021.
