  • What are your admission arrangements?

    The arrangements for the admission of children to our school at age 4+ are made by the County Council. A detailed description of the arrangements is contained on the East Sussex website.

    A copy can be obtained from the:

     

    Schools Admissions Section

    Education Department

    County Hall,

    St Anne’s Crescent

    Lewes BN7 1UE

    (Tel: 0300 330 9472)

    https://new.eastsussex.gov.uk/educationandlearning/schools/admissions/

    A copy is also available for inspection in the school. However parents may find it helpful to know that, if there are insufficient places available to meet demand the following oversubscription criteria will apply:

    1. Looked after children

    2. Children with an exceptional medical or social need for whom attendance at any other school would be inappropriate.

    3. Children who will have a brother or sister at the school at the time of admission and who live at the same address, within the pre-defined community area*

    4. Other children living within the pre-defined community area.

    5. Children who will have a brother or sister at the school at the time of admission who live at the same address, outside the pre-defined community area.*

    6. Other children living outside the pre-defined community area.

     

    *The criteria relating to brothers and sisters applies to new families where one child is admitted on or after the 1 September 2012.  Children who have brothers or sisters attending the school prior to 1 September 2012 will be admitted under the previous criteria which give priority to brothers and sisters regardless of whether they live in the pre-defined community area or not.

     

    Tiebreaker – The shortest distance from home to school will decide between applications if the need arises.

     

  • How do I find out about your school's admission arrangements through the local authority?

  • What are the schools charging and remissions policies?

    The Governors have a charging policy which is based on that drawn up by East Sussex County Council in accordance with the requirements of Section 100 of the Education Reform Act 1988. The policy became effective from 1st April 1989 and is applicable to all registered pupils of Frant CE Primary School. A copy of the policy can be seen at school.

     

    Charges

    The Governing Body reserves the right to make a charge in the following circumstances for activities organised by the school:

    1. School journeys in school hours

    The board and lodging element of any residential activity deemed to take place within school hours.

    2. Activities outside school hours

    The full cost to each pupil of any activity deemed to be an optional extra taking place outside of school hours.

    3. Individual instrumental tuition

    The cost to the pupil of providing instrumental tuition which is not provided as part of the syllabus for a prescribed public examination or to fulfill the requirements of the National Curriculum.

    4. Material involved in producing a product where a parent has indicated in advance a wish to own the product.

     

    Remission of charges

    Remission of any charges levied by the school will normally be granted (except in the case of the finished product of a practical lesson) where:

    1. Parents are in receipt of Child Tax Credit or Income Support (Job Seekers Allowance) and in the case of board or lodging the activity can be classified as taking place in school hours, and if outside school hours is provided specifically to fulfill requirements of the National Curriculum, Religious Education or a syllabus of public examination.
    2. The head teacher (or County Music Adviser for individual music tuition) has recommended remission of the charges in individual cases of hardship.
