Admission and Entry to the School

  • Registration: A Registracijos forma must be completed and a fee of £75.00 is payable for registering your child’s details with the school. Completion of the Registration From does not guarantee your child a place.
  • Assessment: All pupils are assessed before a place is offered.
  • Acceptance: When a place is offered an Acceptance Form must be completed and the deposit of £500 paid within one month of the date of the offer letter. This deposit is not refundable should the pupil subsequently not take up the place offered at the School.
  • Failure to compete and return the Acceptance Form, Admission Form including medical information, and deposit by the stated date, may result in the place being offered to someone else on the waiting list.
  • Deposit: this will be returned when the child leaves the school, providing there a no debts owing and the correct notice period has been given.

Where to Children go on to?

Children go on to attend a variety of schools from Roxeth Mead including, Orley Farm, Haberdashers, Buckingham Prep, Alpha Prep, Reddiford and Quainton Hall.

 

Exclusions

In the most serious cases, where all interventions have failed or where behaviour is dangerous or a threat to another child or member of staff, we may use exclusions. Exclusion may be triggered by:

– Physical assault against a pupil
– Physical assault against an adult
– Verbal abuse/threatening behaviour against a pupil
– Verbal abuse/threatening behaviour against an adult
– Bullying
– Racist abuse
– Sexual misconduct
– homophobic/transgender abuse
– Persistent disruptive behaviour that is regularly inhibiting the learning of others

If a child is excluded for a period of less than 5 days the school will provide work. In the event of a permanent exclusion we will inform the Local Authority as other provision will need to be made.

 

Special Educational Needs or More Able

If you child has Special Educational Needs or is More Able, has an EHCP, or is a child where English is not their first language, please make us aware of this during our admission discussions so that we are fore-warned and can work out the best way to help and support your child.
