Full details of the policy, together with information about the arrangements for admission, are set out in the 'Parents' Guide to Education in Shropshire on the Shropshire Council website.

Our Published Admission number is 8 for the Reception Year intake 2017/18.

Parents of Reception Year children in Shropshire will be required in the Autumn term prior to the school year of admission to complete a Local Authority application form stating preferences for up to three schools. If there are more applications for places that there are places available within the admission limit, then priority will be given based on:

In Year Admissions

When thinking of moving your child midterm or part way through the primary school stage we would advise parents to discuss this with their child's current headteacher. Careful consideration should be given to whether such a move will be of benefit to your child and their educational progress. Parents who wish their child to attend Adderley are encouraged to get in touch to arrange a visit.

To make an application, an in year application form is available below which once completed can be returned to the school.

More information about in-year applications can be found on the Shropshire Council's website.

British Values

At Adderley our curriculum promotes respect, tolerance and diversity. Children are encouraged to express themselves through discussions, debates and consultations. We work hard to ensure the children have an understanding of both Christian and British values and how these guide us.

Our work on British Values is further explained in our British Values Statement.

Further Policies 

Link to Shropshire's SEN/D Local Offer

Holidays in term time are actively discouraged by the School and Local Authority.

Whistle Blowing - Shropshire Council is committed to open and honest communication and the highest possible standards of integrity. Part of meeting that commitment is to encourage employees, members and others who have serious concerns to speak up. This may need to be on a confidential basis and the Council wishes to emphasise that if someone does "speak up" they can do so without fear of reprisal. Such policies are termed " blowing the whistle".

Key Stage Results

In 2017 we only had a cohort of 4 children taking KS2 SATS, this included children with Special Educational Needs.

Please note that with very small cohorts, each individual child is a very high percentage of the total, so results can look very different from year to year.

Schools Performance 2017

We had a small cohort of 8 children taking KS2 SATS in 2016, this included children with Special Educational Needs.

School Performance 2016

Department for Education (DFEs) Achievement and Attainment Data

Because we are a small school, our results are not always available on the government’s Department of Education website. This is to protect anonymity in small schools and because data in such small cohorts is not always statistically useful when each child may represent up to 50 or 100% of the data. If the year group size is below ten pupils the data on the government’s websites is suppressed and appears as SUPP.

Please see DFEs School Performance Tables
