Application procedure and admission policy
Enrolment is not automatic. The admission policy is designed to ensure that the pupils who attend the school have the capacity to thrive within, and benefit from, all that QES offers.
The admission procedures take into account three main strands:
1. Assessment results
Pupils will need to demonstrate the capacity and capability to benefit from the educational programmes at QES. The School may request applicants to complete an assessment prior to the offer of a place, depending on the year group that they wish to enter, to ensure the pupil’s educational needs can be met within a mainstream school setting and in an age-appropriate class.
Where there is some evidence of additional educational need, opportunities will be provided to discuss the child’s educational development in more detail, and for the school to carry out appropriate assessments, to decide whether an offer of a place can be made.
Wherever possible pupils/families will be interviewed prior to admission. These interviews will be carried out as part of the enrolment procedure by the relevant teacher, and through discussion with the Headteacher.
3. Previous record of attainment and achievement
Pupils entering school who have previous school experience will be expected to have a record of their past academic achievements from each school attended. It is also important to note that the school will place pupils in the most appropriate year group according to their chronological age, as outlined on the information sheet Class placement at QES.
Enrolment into Pre-Nursery
Applications for enrolment into Pre-Nursery are considered on a case by case basis. Entry is initially through consultation with the Head of Primary who will advise parents. It is anticipated that as part of the admissions procedure, potential pupils will spend some time with the class that they wish to enter, to allow our teaching and support staff to observe their behaviour and interaction with their peers, as well as being able to gauge their ability to communicate and understand English.
Enrolment into Nursery
The criteria for enrolment into Nursery is that all pupils must be capable of using English as their working language.

Enrolment into Years 1 to 6
It is important for entry into Primary that pupils are confident and competent users of English. At this level, potential pupils may be asked to carry out short assessments to test their understanding and use of written English, in addition to assessing their ability in Mathematics.
