This school is an academy and part of the Boleyn Trust which means we are our own admission authority, however, we continue to adopt The London Borough of Newham’s Admissions Arrangements.

If your child is joining Nursery or Reception you will benefit from an experienced and professional education and pastoral team as your child starts their school career.

If your child is joining outside of these times then our In Year Entry Team will ensure that your child smoothly resumes or starts their school career as well. 

When your child completes Year 6, they will leave us for secondary school. Before going we will endeavour to provide parents with full information on all the local secondary schools available, to enable you to make the best choice.

Cleves 30 Hours Free Childcare for Under 5's

​Cleves Primary School are offering 30 hour free childcare for under 5's.  This is a full day nursery provision from 8:45 am to 3:30 pm for 3-5 year olds.

Parents of three and four year olds will need to meet the following criteria in order to be eligible for 30 hours free childcare:

  • They earn or expect to earn the equivalent to 16 hours at National Minimum or Living Wage over the coming three months - This equates to £120 a week (or c.£6,000 a year) for each parent over 25 years old or £112.80 a week (or c.£5,800 a year) for each parent between 21 and 24 years old.
  • The parent (and their partner where applicable) should be seeking the free childcare to enable them to work.
  • Where one parent meets the income criteria and the other is unable to work because they are disabled, have caring responsibilities or have been assessed as  having limited capability to work.
  • If a non-EEA national, the parent must have recourse to public funds.

Determined Admission Arrangements - September 2020

The law requires that all schools must have admission arrangements that clearly set out how children will be admitted, including the criteria that will be applied if there are more applications than places at the school. Admission arrangements are determined by admission authorities.

All admission authorities must determine (i.e. formally agree) admission arrangements annually, even if they have not changed from previous years and a consultation has not been required. Admission authorities must determine admission arrangements for entry in September 2020, by 28 February 2019.  Pupil Services  is the admission authority for Shaftesbury Primary School and we have formally agreed to adopt the LB Newham’s admission arrangements for September 2020.   

For any proposed changes to the existing determined arrangements a formal consultation must take place and must be for a minimum of 6 weeks and must take place between 1 October and 31 January of the school year before those arrangements are to apply. For example: for arrangements which are to apply to applications in 2019 (entry in September 2020), consultation must be completed by 31 January 2019. This consultation period allows parents, other schools, religious authorities and the local community to raise any concerns about proposed arrangements.  We did not propose any changes for 2020 as our changes were made and consulted upon for entry in September 2019

Our Determined Arrangements for the school year starting in September 2020 are:

LB Newham School Admission Arrangements       

You can be object to these arrangements or the arrangements of any school by referring to the Office of the Schools Adjudicator. Objections to admission arrangements for entry in September 2020 must be referred to the Adjudicator by 15 May 2019. Any decision of the Adjudicator must be acted on by the admission authority and admission arrangements amended accordingly.

Fair Access

The law requires that each local authority must have a Fair Access Protocol (FAP), agreed with the majority of schools in its area to ensure that for In Year admissions unplaced children, especially the most vulnerable, are offered a place at a suitable school as quickly as possible.  In agreeing a protocol, the local authority must ensure that no school - including those with available places - is asked to take a disproportionate number of children who have been excluded from other schools, or who have challenging behaviour.  Shaftesbury Primary School has signed up to the LB Newham’s Fair Access Protocol.
