Our admissions policy was reviewed and updated for September 2021 Admissions. We are a Church of England Voluntary Aided School but this does not affect our admissions policy. Families of all faiths and none are equally welcome and we have no clause with regard to practising church-goers in our admissions procedures. 

Although the Governing Body of the school, not Buckinghamshire Local Authority (the LA), is responsible for deciding on admissions to the school, it does work closely with the LA who handles the Early Years admissions intake.  The detailed admission criteria for East Claydon Church of England Primary School is set out in our admissions policy.

At East Claydon we have 15 places per year group. Visitors are always welcome and visits encouraged. For more information about admissions :
