Parents are welcome to visit the school with their children to see us at work. From time to time we arrange a special Open Morning when children from Year 6 are the guides, giving an ‘inside view’ to life at The Breakspear School.

Admissions Criteria for The Breakspear School Statutory School Age from September 2017
As we are a Community School, the Local Authority is responsible for the formal Admissions Procedure and application for a place needs to be made through it (www.hillingdon.gov.uk ). Children join our Reception in the September of the year in which they will be five. The Local Authority use the following criteria:
“ADMISSION CRITERIA AND ARRANGEMENTS FOR HILLINGDON LOCAL AUTHORITY COMMUNITY INFANT, JUNIOR AND PRIMARY SCHOOLS.
(Except for Deanesfield Primary School, Frithwood Primary School, Harmondsworth Primary School and Heathrow Primary School.
When the school is oversubscribed, after the admission of pupils with a Statement of Special Educational Needs / Education, Health & Care Plan where the school is named in the Statement/Plan, priority for admission will be given to those children who meet the criteria set out below:
- A looked after child (as defined in the Children Act 1989) or a child who was previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, child arrangement order, or a special guardianship order.
- Children attending year 2 at the linked infant school are given priority for admission to the junior school (this applies to junior school applications only).
- Children who suffer from a long term medical or psychological condition, which makes it necessary for them to attend a particular school.
- Children who have a member of the immediate family who suffers from a long term medical or psychological condition which makes it necessary for them to attend a particular school.
- Children who have a sibling* living within the distance priority radius.
- Children who have a sibling* who was admitted to the full time school prior to 31st August 2017.
- Children living nearest the school within the distance priority radius.
- Children of staff where the member of staff is recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage.
- Children who have a sibling* living outside of the distance priority radius.
- Children living nearest the school not within the distance priority radius.
Priority will be given within each criteria for those living nearest the school according to distance which will be measured in a straight line from the point set by Ordnance Survey at the child’s home address and the school using Hillingdon Council’s computerised mapping system.
The supporting evidence in Criteria 3 and 4 above should set out the particular reasons why the school in question is the most suitable and the difficulties that would be caused if the child had to attend another school. The admission authority cannot give higher priority to children under these criteria if the required documents have not been produced.
Applications must be supported by medical evidence from a GP or Hospital Consultant.
* For the purposes of criteria 5, 6 and 9, a sibling is defined as a brother or sister, half brother or sister with at least one parent in common, adopted brother or sister living in the same household who currently attends the full-time school (not the nursery) and will continue to do so on the date of admission. Linked infant and junior schools are considered to be the same school for these criteria.
The distance priority radius will be set as follows: 3 form entry school = 1000 metres.
