    Admissions Policies and supplementary information forms

    St Anne’s School is a Catholic, Voluntary Aided Primary school in the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton. We serve the parishes of St Ann’s in Banstead and St John the Evangelist in Tadworth. The Governors aim to offer a distinctively Catholic education for children of rising 5 years of age to 11 years of age. They expect parents to uphold the Catholic character and ethos of the school. These expectations are reflected in our admissions policy, which gives full details of the criteria we apply when admitting children into the school.

    Procedures for admission for 2022-23

    We hope to see many of you at our open mornings on Saturday 6th November and Wednesday 10th November 2021. Please see further details in our open morning section above. We are happy to answer any questions via the school office or admissions@stannes-school.uk. 

    Parents who wish to apply for a place for their child need to complete two separate application forms. One is obtained from the LA (Local Authority, Surrey for most parents) in which the parents live. This form is normally completed on-line; the Surrey form will be available from Monday 2nd November. The other is obtained from the school and enables us to collect the information we need in order to apply our admissions policy and supplementary information form (SIF) fairly. Both forms must be completed and returned before the published closing date for applications (Saturday 15th January 2022). The SIF must be returned to the school office. 

    Appeals process for entry in 2022-23

    The national offer date is 16th April 2022. Further details will follow about when appeals need to be lodged. Appeals lodged after the set date will be heard within 40 school days of the appeal deadline or 30 days of being lodged whichever is the later date. 

    In year admissions from 1 November 2021 until 31 August 2022

    What are In Year Admissions?

    You can make an in-year application if your child needs to join a school outside of the normal admissions round - for example, if you move house and your child can no longer attend their current school.

    How parents can apply for a school place

    If you want to apply for an In-Year admission to St Anne’s Catholic Primary School, you need to complete:

    1. A Centrally Managed Application for In Year admission to a school (CMA) – Application Form
    • The CMA Application Form can be found here
    • You MUST scan or photograph your completed CMA Application Form and supporting evidence and email it to schooladmissions@surreycc.gov.uk. If you are unable to email it, please post to Surrey Admissions Team, Quadrant Court, 35 Guildford Road, Woking GU22 7QQ.  

     

    1. The School’s Supplementary Information Form (SIF)
    • The SIF is available here
    • You MUST return the Supplementary Information Form to Mrs Slade (Office Manager), St Anne’s Catholic Primary School, Court Road, Banstead, SM7 2PH (admissions@stannes-school.uk)

    Who processes your application?

    The governing body is the admissions authority for St Anne’s Catholic Primary School and has responsibility for admissions to the school, including setting the priority of admissions when the school is oversubscribed. Although Surrey County Council coordinates In year applications for St Anne’s Catholic Primary School, it is the governing body who will consider if the school has any vacancies and if so, whether they are able to offer a place. The school will contact you to let you know the outcome of your application.

    When will parents be notified of the outcome of their application?

    Upon receipt of an In Year application, Surrey County Council will aim to notify parents of the outcome of the application in writing within 10 school days. However, it might take up to 15 school days. You must respond to any offer of a place within two weeks.

    The right to appeal

    If you are refused a place at any school you applied for, you have the right to make an appeal to an independent appeal panel. Where an application is refused, the school will set out the reason for refusal.

    For applications for In Year Admissions, appeals must be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged. If parents wish to appeal, they must set out the grounds for appeal in writing.

    Other Information

    Where an applicant is offered a school place following an in-year application, and the offer is accepted, arrangements should be made for the child to start school as soon as possible, particularly where the child is out of school.

    If your child is not offered a place, you can add their name to a waiting list. Waiting lists are ranked according to each school’s admission criteria. Your child’s position on a waiting list may go down as well as up, for example, if other children with greater priority according to the school’s admission criteria are added to the list.

  • History

    St Anne’s is a two-form entry Catholic primary school, located on an attractive site close to the centre of Banstead village.

    History

    The school was founded in 1939, initially situated in a hut on the Brighton Road. At this time there were only six pupils. Shortly after this, the school transferred to Court House, an historical dwelling that forms the centre point of the current site. From 1954 until 1992 the school was run by the Religious Congregation, Poor Servants of the Mother of God. Under their stewardship the school expanded to meet the growing needs of the Catholic community in Banstead and surrounding areas. Since 1992 the school has continued to flourish, now being run by the laity, although the Congregation retains a direct interest in the development of the school.

    Buildings

    Throughout its history St Anne’s has continually adapted and expanded its buildings to meet the changing demands facing the school. Today the school site essentially consists of three blocks: an infant block, a central administration and meeting block and a junior block. Surrounding these are attractive grounds. As new buildings have been added and existing ones modified one aim has been to achieve disabled access for children to all parts of the school site.

    Facilities

    Children at St Anne’s are taught in well-resourced classrooms. We recognise the part that ICT (Information & Communication Technology) plays in enhancing learning. For example, we have a state-of-the-art computer room and every classroom benefits from an interactive whiteboard and broadband internet access. There are separate playgrounds for infant- and junior-aged children. Sports facilities include a new all-weather multi-sports pitch and netball court.

    Partnerships

    We value partnerships formed with parents. Parents are regular visitors to the school. They support children in classes, accompany trips, join us for special liturgies and share ideas about how the school can be improved. In addition, we benefit from an extremely enthusiastic and effective PTA (Parent Teacher Association).

    St Anne’s works in partnership with other local schools and organisations in order to provide the highest possible quality of education. We collaborate with other local schools through the North Downs Schools Partnership. This allows us to meet specific learning needs, for example by offering workshops for more able pupils or obtaining specialist support for less able pupils. We also cooperate very closely with neighbouring Catholic schools, especially in aspects of religious education and the religious identities of our schools.

  • Safeguarding

    Safeguarding

    Keeping children safe is one of the most important parts of our work at St Anne’s. We expect all staff and visitors to share our commitment to protecting the welfare and safety of every child in our care.

    Some of the ways in which we help to keep children safe include:

    • teaching children how to stay safe as part of our  Life Skills curriculum;
    • helping children to stay safe online as part of our  Computing curriculum;
    • encouraging good behaviour, based on Gospel values;
    • completing risk assessments for all potentially hazardous activities (in and out of school);
    • being vigilant for signs that a child may be at risk of harm and following up any concerns rigorously;
    • following safer recruitment practices when appointing new staff and providing regular safeguarding training and updates for all staff;
    • annually auditing our safeguarding provision against local authority requirements, ensuring that we meet all statutory and best practice guidelines.

    If you are worried about the safety or wellbeing of any child in the school, please speak to a member of staff as a matter of urgency. Our designated safeguarding leads (DSLs) are:

    • Mrs Smith (acting SENCo & acting assistant headteacher);
    • Miss Renaut (Headteacher);
    • Mrs Harvey (lower phase teaching assistant);
    • Mrs Spencer (Reception class teacher).

    Their role is to take lead responsibility for child protection issues in the school, including liaison with outside agencies when necessary. Safeguarding issues are always discussed at weekly leadership meetings (attended by all our DSLs). Our governing body takes a particularly close interest in all matters relating to safeguarding. There is a nominated safeguarding governor (Kathryn Donohue) and an e-safety governor (Tosin Adegun).

    You can contact the NSPCC if you are worried that any child is being abused, either via their website (click here) or by telephone (0800 028 0285). NSPCC also has excellent advice for parents about keeping their children safe, including when online: you can find this by clicking here.

    Several of our policies are particularly relevant to safeguarding. These include:

    Anti-bullying policy

    Behaviour policy

    E-safety policy

    Child Protection and Safeguarding policy

    Supporting children with medical conditions policy

    Our School Vision Statement

    Our vision is for St Anne’s to be a vibrant and happy learning community that helps all children to become the people that God calls them to be.

    Our School Aims

    • To make our pupils aware of their true dignity as children of God and to encourage in them a sense of the sacred and of respect for other races, religions and cultures;
    • To continue to develop strong moral values and a sense of right and wrong;
    • To know our children personally and build relationships of mutual trust;
    • To be a caring community involving children, parents, staff, governors and priests in the development of the whole child;
    • To create a climate of successful learning and teaching in which children are encouraged to develop enquiring minds and work to the best of their ability;
    • To stimulate in children a sense of awe and wonder, excitement and enthusiasm about the world around them;
    • To encourage children to value their personal contribution to the school and community;
    • To encourage children to become active and caring members of the wider community;
    • To help children make constructive use of their leisure time.

    We aim to achieve our Mission by providing excellent education and strong support for School-Home-Parish links.

    School

    We believe that Christ is at the centre of all that happens within the St Anne’s school family.  We grow in God’s love by living according to the practices and teachings of the Catholic Church and by praying together as a school community.  We encourage every individual to develop as a whole person: academically, spiritually, physically, socially and emotionally.

    Home

    We undertake to support and understand children and their families, particularly in times of difficulty, and treat them at all times with a sensitivity that maintains the dignity of the individual.

    Parish

    We expect that the children’s faith journey, which starts at home and is nourished at school, will be supported by the whole parish community.
