Admissions for academic year 2020 - 2021 / in-year applications
Below are the Admissions policy and supplementary form and the Clergy reference letter for September 2021 entry.
CLARIFICATION STATEMENT FOR 2020/21 SCHOOL YEAR
The governing body of Reigate Parish Church Primary School has agreed the following statement in order to clarify how its faith-based oversubscription criteria will be interpreted whilst churches are closed or attendance at church is unsafe due to COVID-19. This statement has been shared widely with churches in order to ensure that determinations made by relevant ministers concerning church attendance are being made on a consistent basis.
The statement is:
“In the event that during the period specified for attendance at worship the church has been closed for public worship and has not provided alternative premises for that worship, the requirements of these [admissions] arrangements in relation to attendance will only apply to the period when the church or alternative premises have been available for public worship.”
If a parent/carer attended a given church prior to the closing of churches for public worship, then where a parent/carer has not subsequently attended worship at a given church for a given period a parent/carer will be considered to have attended worship at that church for that period where either of the following apply:
a) the church was closed for public worship;
b) by returning to church the parent/carer would not be taking account of government guidance concerning COVID 19
