Finchampstead C of E (Aided) Primary School

An enriching education in a welcoming Christian environment


Finchampstead Primary School has a distinctive Christian ethos which is embodied in our Vision Statement.


Our vision is that our children


  • feel cared for unconditionally and valued as unique creation made in the image of God
  • become enthusiastic self-motivated learners with a thirst for life-long learning, built on a firm foundation
  • have learnt from, and aspired to excellence in, a wide range of academic, sporting, musical, artistic and social activities
  • have a strong set of Christian values, including tolerance, respect for the planet, self and others, honesty and sincerity, kindness and friendship, love and forgiveness, justice and personal responsibility so that our pupils can create their place, and have a positive influence, in tomorrow’s world.


As a church school, we welcome applications from Christian families and those of other faiths or none. We ask all parents applying for a place at our school to respect this ethos and its importance to the whole school community.


The governors have made every effort to ensure that these arrangements comply with the School Admissions Code 2014 and all relevant legislation, including that on infant class sizes and equal opportunities.


The governors of Finchampstead Church of England (aided) Primary School are consulting on their proposed Admissions Policy for 2019 - 20 between 15 December 2017 and 26 January 2018. The main change is to reduce the over-subscription criteria by one, in future omitting 'other church connection' whilst retaining the school's special link with St James' Church Finchampstead. In addition there are some amended words to clarify the position of 'summer born' children. Any comments should be sent to the school by post or email for the attention of Mrs Carolyn Fox by 5pm on 26 January 2018.
