Admissions Information

Lightwater Village School admission arrangements are designed to be in line with Surrey County Council’s determined admission arrangements for Community and Voluntary Controlled schools for the 2020-21 round.

Further information can be found on the Surrey County Council website at https://www.surreycc.gov.uk/schools-and-learning/schools/school-admissions

The determined admission arrangements for Lightwater Village School for September 2020 are:

  1. The Published Admission Numbers for Lightwater Village School in September 2020 is 60.
  2. Applications for admission at the normal intake will be managed in accordance with Surrey County Council’s co-ordinated scheme on primary admissions.
  3. Applications for Reception and Junior places at schools must be made between 4th November 2019 and by 15th January 2020.  Applicants will be asked to rank up to four primaries or Year R preferences and these will be considered under an equal preference system.
  4. Children with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) that name Lightwater Village School will be allocated a place before other children are considered.  In this way, the number of places available will be reduced by the number of children with an EHCP.
  5. When Lightwater Village School is over-subscribed for any year group, applications for entry in 2020-21 will be ranked in the following order.
  • First Priority: Looked after and previously looked after children.  Within the admission arrangements for Lightwater Village School looked after and previously looked after children will receive the top priority for a place.
  • Second Priority:  Exceptional Social/Medical Needs.  Occasionally there will be a very small number of children for whom exceptional social or medical circumstances apply which will warrant a placement at a particular school.  This criteria might relate to either the child or the parent/carer.
  • Third Priority:  Children who will have a sibling at the school or at a Junior School on a shared adjoining site at the time of the child’s admission (The Federated Schools of Lightwater Village School and Hammond Junior School are treated under this Criteria).
  • Fourth Priority:  Children for whom the school is the nearest to their home address – nearness to the school will be measured in a straight line from the address point of the pupil’s house as set out by Ordnance Survey to the nearest official school gate.
  • Fifth Priority:  Any other applicant.

Waiting Lists for 2018 and 2019 intakes

Waiting lists are ranked according to a school's admissions criteria, not the date the application was received or when the child's name was added to the list.  Waiting lists will be maintained by Admissions at Surrey County Council until the last day of the Summer Term in the academic year children are admitted to Reception Year. Any applicants who wish their child to remain on the waiting lists must write to the school and County Council by the last day of the Summer Term, otherwise all lists are cancelled at the end of each academic year.

Your Child’s Position on the Waiting List

Your child's position on a waiting list can go down as well as up.  This will occur if other children are added to the list because they have greater priority against the school's admission criteria.

To find out the position of your child on the Waiting List.  You can call Surrey County Council on 0300 200 1004.
