Under the Education Act parents can express a preference for any school but do not have the right to choose a school. West Sussex Education Authority does make every effort to meet parental choice where possible. Further details of admissions can be found online on the West Sussex Grid for Learning.

When your child starts or joins the school additional funding may also be available called Pupil Premium

If you are in receipt of benefits (click here for list) you can apply for free school meals and your child's school will receive a Pupil Premium grant to support your child's education. The grant is currently £1300 per eligible primary pupil. This applies even if your child is currently receiving Universal Free School Meals in Reception or Key Stage One.
