The Haven Voluntary Aided CofE/Methodist Primary School

God in all we do


As a church school we process our own admissions. If you are interested in placing your child in our school then please feel free to call the school to establish if we have any vacancies.

If we do have a place then we would require you to complete the ESCC Application Form as soon as possible, these can be collected from the school or downloaded from ESCC website. The completed form should be then returned to the school and we can then send it on to School Admissions at County Hall in Lewes. The Supplementary Information Form also needs to be completed and returned to the school, this can be located at the bottom of this page.  If we do not have space for your child we will still require you to complete the ESCC Application Form and send it to School Admissions at County Hall, Lewes. Once we have received your completed the Supplementary Information Form then your child's name will be placed on our waiting list.

Priority on the waiting list is given according to the criteria in our Admissions Policy which is available to download also from our website. If you are applying for a foundation place we would also require a Clergy Reference Form signed by your church leader.

Please note that 30 pupils in a class is statutory for all children in the Infants (Reception, Years 1 and 2). The Governors would not therefore be able to offer a place in the school, even on appeal, if the subsequent class numbers would be higher than 30. We also aim to have 32 children in each class in the Juniors and the governors would not wish to exceed this number except under exceptional circumstances.
