The Prestbury St Mary's Federation is Voluntary Aided, supported by St Mary's Church. This means that the Governing Body is responsible for school admissions, although families should apply for their child's place through Gloucestershire County Council, which administers the process on behalf of the Federation.
Families will normally receive their school admissions pack in the autumn before their child is due to start school the following September. The Supplementary Information Form is required for those families applying under the church criteria, and this should be returned to the school office.
Please note that, in line with Government advice, we will not be able to invite you to Open Mornings as usual; instead, we hope to post some virtual videos on our website - please look out for these.
In the meantime, if you have any queries regarding admissions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

Supplementary Information Form
To be completed and returned to the infant school if you are considering applying for a place under our church membership criteria:
Maps displaying the parish boundary and the priority areas are currently being prepared and will be uploaded upon completion.
These documents are included for guidance only. It is important to contact email@example.com or the school office if you are in any doubt or have any queries regarding the parish and priority area boundaries.
The St. Mary's Federation manages its own in-year applications. To apply for a place please complete the In-year application form and return it to the relevant school office or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org (infants) or email@example.com (junior)
If applicable, the form should be accompanied by a supplementary information form (see above)
If multiple applications for the same year group are received at the same time, then the applications will be ranked according to the current admissions policy.
Parents will be notified in writing within 15 school days on the outcome of the application. If the application is refused, then the reasons for refusal will be given. There is a legal right to appeal the decision and the papers can be obtained from the relevant school office.
