We are a one form entry primary school, our published admissions number (PAN) is 30. There are currently 191 pupils on roll. If you would like your child to attend our school, please come and have a tour with Mrs Spain the Head Teacher. As a community school the local authority decides our admissions, therefore parents should contact the local authority to find out about the admission arrangements for Stapleford Community Primary School. Further details regarding the admission arrangements are below.
There are 190 teaching days in the academic year and the school term dates are agreed by Cambridgeshire and set for community schools including Stapleford School. Term time holidays are not permitted unless there is an exceptional circumstance. All applications for a leave of absence should be made in writing. If a child already has attendance of less than 96%, the request will be refused.
Attendance is rated as excellent if it is 99% or 100%.
In recent years the attendance figure at Stapleford Community Primary School (SCPS) has improved, but not quite as much as the national figure.
