Admissions Procedures

Visiting the school

  • We recommend that parents visit our school before registering their child as there can be no substitute for a visit.
  • Parents should telephone the school office to book and appointment to be shown around the school. All parents are shown around by the Head Teacher or a senior member of staff. We also have several Open Days each year (the dates of which appear in the local press and on our web site).

Registration

  • Parents who wish to apply for a place for their child should complete an Application for Registration form and return it, along with the £50 registration fee, to the school office. The registration fee is non-refundable.
  • Applications for registration should be submitted as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
  • The Application for Registration will be considered by the Principal after meeting with the parents and assessing the pupil. If the application is successful the school office will send the parent an offer of a place.
  • Parents should accept this offer by signing the Acceptance Form and returning it to the school office along with a Deposit of £200. This Deposit will be deducted from the first terms fees but is otherwise non-refundable.

After Registration

  • After an offered place has been accepted the Parents will be sent a booklet containing information for new parents and an invitation to visit the School to meet his/her new teacher and fellow pupils.

Admissions Policy


We consider all applications for a child to join our school equally and fairly, although applications from children with siblings at the school may be given priority. Children will be admitted subject to availability of a place.

  • We are a co-educational, multi-racial school and candidates from all ethnic minority groups are welcomed provided that they are prepared to take part fully in all school activities.
  • All applications will be treated in a sensitive manner and are confidential.
  • Children with special educational needs and disabilities are welcome at Rosslyn. Specialist teachers provide support in either small groups or with individual tuition as needed. All our children achieve their potential, and many exceed the standards expected for their age.
  • Children with English as an additional language are welcome at Rosslyn and are well supported with language-enriched activities.

Entrance Criteria

  • We aim to be an inclusive school that welcomes children from all backgrounds and abilities.
  • Applicants with special needs are given special consideration at all times. Wherever feasible, the school seeks to offer access to pupils with disabilities.

Appeals

  • Any child that is refused admission will be reconsidered on written request to the Head Teacher.

Discipline and Exclusions

  • Rosslyn School expects and maintains high standards of discipline at all times. Pupils are courteous, well mannered and respectful. Pupils who display unacceptable behaviour are disciplined according to our Discipline and Exclusions Policy which clearly sets out sanctions adopted in the event of pupils misbehaving. This policy is available on our web site and also, hard copies may be requested from the School office.

School Policies

  • The school has a comprehensive range of School Policies including Bullying, Child Protection, Health and Safety and the Promotion of Good Behaviour. These policies are available on our website and hard copies may be requested from the school office.
