ADMISSIONS POLICY

The Aquila School will offer places to families where spaces are available and the school can meet the needs of the child. Applications are dealt with on a first come first served basis.

Re-admissions
Students are eligible for re-registration for the next academic year unless there are significant behavioural issues.

Siblings
Siblings of current students are given priority if the year group is at capacity. Sibling discounts are also available.

Staff Children
Children of The Aquila School teaching staff are guaranteed a school place, subject to the terms of their contract and if the school can meet the needs of the staff. They must still complete an enrolment form and supply requested documentation.

Waiting Lists
Where a year group is at capacity, a child may be placed on the waiting list. The parent will be contacted if and when a place becomes available. If a place is offered it must be accepted or declined within one week.

Applications For the Next Academic Year
These can be made at any time, and admissions assessments will begin in Term 1.

Medical Records
The school requires current and accurate information regarding your child’s medical requirements, and that you update the school should the circumstances change. We require records of previous medical treatments, allergies, and vaccination records on registration.

Placement of Students After Enrolment
The Aquila School places students in the correct year group in accordance with their age on 31st December if starting school for the first time or in accordance with their year/grade progression, as per KHDA policy.  To maintain equality and diversity in our classes, and to allow students to better support each other’s academic and social development, we place children in the class by considering nationality, language ability, gender, friendship and additional learning needs.

Gender
The Aquila School is a co-educational school.

Nationality
The Aquila School operates a fair and non-discriminatory approach to the selection of students, to enable a diverse and rich cultural experience for all children and members of the school community.

English Language
The Aquila School delivers the National Curriculum for England to children in English. Language proficiency in FS1 is not used as an indication for admissions. In FS2, primary and secondary, language proficiency is assessed to ensure students can access the curriculum, and progress to the best of their ability.

Additional Learning Requirements
The Aquila School is an inclusive school for gifted students and those with special educational needs. We offer additional learning support where we can help the child to progress. Parents should inform the school at application stage regarding any additional learning support requirements for their child. We may request copies of external documents such as professional assessments and individual learning plans.

Behaviour
The Aquila School believes that good student behaviour is fundamental in enabling the best learning experience possible, and all students enrolled at the school should have a positive attitude to learning and respect for the school community. Registration and re-registration are offered subject to this.

Class Capacity
Class sizes will not exceed 24 students unless in exceptional circumstances.
