Admission rules for St John's C of E School (Watford)

50% of places (30 reception places) will be allocated to children of the Christian Faith which is defined by regular attendance of worship (at least twice a month for a period of one year prior to the application being submitted) at a Trinitarian Christian Church. Attendance of Messy Church is considered worship.

1. FAITH PLACE. Children who are looked after children and those who were previously looked after children who have been adopted or have become subject to a child arrangements order or special guardianship order. A looked-after child is a child who is (a) in the care of the local authority, or (b) being provided with accommodation by a local authority in their exercise of their social services functions.

2. FAITH PLACE. Children with a social or medical reason where it can be demonstrated that only this school can meet the needs of the child. Applications under this criteria must be supported by written evidence from a professional such as a doctor or social worker involved in the case.

3. FAITH PLACE. Siblings of children who will still be attending the school in the academic year of admission. Siblings include half-siblings, step-siblings, adopted or foster brothers or sisters, or a child looked after, or previously looked after, living in the same family unit at the time when the child is due to start in the school.

4. FAITH PLACE. Other children, with priority being given to those living closest to the school. This will be the straight line distance from the child’s home address to the school, using the same computerised mapping system that Hertfordshire County Council use when calculating distance from home to school for school admissions.

5. NON FAITH PLACE. Children who are looked after children and those who were previously looked after children who have been adopted or have become subject to a child arrangements order or special guardianship order.
