Under the provisions of the School Admissions Code, The Governors and Multi Academy Trust (the admission authority) of Park View Primary School have agreed that, effective from September 2019, they will admit up to a maximum of 30 children across all year groups in the school (reception to year 6).

The school operates an organisation of two classes in the majority of year groups and the school has the capacity to increase pupil numbers with the current staffing arrangements. There is also sufficient capacity within the school building to accommodate this change. The admission authority has formally determined an admission number of 60 for 2018/19, however this will reduce to 30 from September 2019. This statement is to ensure transparency for all potential applicants to the school during the 2018/19 and 2019/2020 school years.

The determined admission policies and numbers for voluntary aided schools (Catholic and most Church of England Schools) – which can also be obtained from the individual school, can be found below:
